Church bells lyrics Brett James / Zach Crowell / Lee Lindsey

Jenny grew up wild, like a blackfoot daisy
Out in the shack with a blue tick hound
Broke as hell, but blessed with beauty
The kind that a rich man can’t turn down
She caught the eye of an oil man dancin’
One summer night in a dime store dress
She had the looks, he had the mansion
And you can figure out the rest
It was all roses, drippin’ in diamonds
Sipping on champagne
She was all uptown, wearin’ that white gown
Taking his last name
She could hear those church bells ringin’, ringin’
And up in the loft, that whole choir’s singin’, singin’
Fold your hands and close your eyes
Yeah, it’s all gonna be alright
And just listen to the church bells ringin’, ringin’
Yeah, they’re ringin’
Jenny was hosting Junior League parties
And havin’ dinner at the country club
Everyone thought they were Ken and Barbie
But Ken was always gettin’ way too drunk
Saturday night, after a few too many
He came home ready to fight
And all his money could never save Jenny
From the devil livin’ in his eyes
It was all bruises, covered in makeup
Dark sunglasses
And that next mornin’, sittin’ in the back pew
Prayin’ with the baptists
She could hear those church bells ringin’, ringin’
And up in the loft, that whole choir singin’, singin’
Fold your hands and close your eyes
Yeah, it’s all gonna be alright
You just listen to the church bells ringin’, ringin’
Yeah, they’re ringin’
Jenny slipped somethin’ in his Tennessee whiskey
No law man was ever gonna find
And how he died is still a mystery
But he hit a woman for the very last time
She could hear those church bells ringin’, ringin’
Standin’ there in a black dress singin’, singin’
Fold your hands and close your eyes
Yeah, it’s all gonna be alright
And just listen to the church bells ringin’, ringin’
Yeah, they’re ringin’
