"A PRAYER TO SAINT PAUL"

Words & Music by
James Nihan, Dan McCoy and Dawn Zurlinden


IT'S SO COLD IN MINNESOTA
THEY SAY THE WIND CAN FREEZE A TEAR
IT'S JUST AS COLD IN OLD NEW ORLEANS
EVERY DAY THAT YOU'RE NOT HERE
DIXIELAND SOUNDS LONESOME
MADIGRAS' NO FUN
I KNEEL BESIDE AN EMPTY BED
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
AND...

- CHORUS -
I SEND A LITTLE PRAYER TO ST. PAUL
THAT YOU'LL FIND THE LOVE YOU LOST
AND YOU'LL GIVE ME A CALL
AND TELL ME THAT YOU NEED ME AFTER ALL
EACH NIGHT WHEN I DESPAIR
BECAUSE YOU'RE WAY UP THERE
I SEND A LITTLE PRAYER TO ST. PAUL


I STILL THINK YOU WALK ON WATER
AND I HAVE THIS FANTASY
YOU STEP OUT ON THE MISSISSIPPI
AND YOU WALK ON BACK TO ME
THIS AIN'T NO BIG EASY
IT'S A REAL HARD TOWN
ALL ALONE ON BOURBON STREET
WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN

(REPEAT CHORUS)
