Lyrics:

Long,Tall, Steeples
(c) Mar 2008, Rebecca Dale Peaden (BMI)/Moker Jarrett (ASCAP)


On my second hundred miles
Deep in thought after burying my best friend
I was driving the long way home
on back roads from Jacksonville to Memphis

When I came to a four-way stop
I watched a soaring eagle come to a perch
seemed he was staring right into my soul
from the steeple of an old country church

Chorus:

Long tall steeples
pointing to the sky
must be there to remind us people
we've a powerful ally
In this world so full of evil
There's a refuge where we can hide
Yeah, even the eagle knows
there by the grace of God...go I
Yeah, by the grace of God go I


I felt a chill run down my back
and knew somewhere I'd lost my way
cause suddenly the life that I'd called "living"
seemed like a million cold dark rainy days

Chorus:

Long tall steeples
pointing to the sky
must be there to remind us people
we've a powerful ally
In this world so full of evil
There's a refuge where we can hide
Yeah, even the eagle knows
there by the grace of God...go I
Yeah, by the grace of God go I

Bridge:

I'm reminded of how I was raised, and the good times shared with him
'n' how if I get on the right track, I might get back, to share those good times again

Chorus:

Long tall steeples
pointing to the sky
must be there to remind us people
we've a powerful ally
In this world so full of evil
There's a refuge where we can hide
Yeah, even the eagle knows
there by the grace of God...go I
yeah by the grace of God go I
