OLD TIME RELIGION
Kevin and Michelle Pitts / Darden Smith

It’s that old time religion
That old time religion
It’s the power and the vision
It’s not a choice it’s a decision
And the old time religion
Is what we need
Cause that old time religion
Sets us free

My grandfather I called him Pops
He was a man of the land
Taught me how to hunt and how to fish
How to shake a hand
You don’t get respect if you don’t give it
Don’t talk love you got to live it
It was him who showed me how to be a man
That’s what I call…

It’s that old time religion
That old time religion
It’s the power and the vision
It’s not a choice it’s a decision
And the old time religion
Is what we need
Cause that old time religion
Sets us free

A holy man in the mountains
Of Afghanistan gave me beads
I wrapped them round my wrist, wore them every day
He believed so I believed
The bullets started flying and it should have been my time
But I walked out safe and if that ain’t a sign
That old man and his faith were watching over me
That’s what I call…

It’s that old time religion
That old time religion
It’s the power and the vision
It’s not a choice it’s a decision
And the old time religion
Is what we need
Cause that old time religion
Sets us free

A woman says a prayer she has a dream
Tries to figure out what it means
And she calls a man from twenty years ago
It was funny, right from the start
It’s like we’d never been apart
Maybe this thing called love
Is just an…

It’s that old time religion
That old time religion
It’s the power and the vision
It’s not a choice it’s a decision
And the old time religion
Is what we need
Cause that old time religion
Sets us free
