Craig Lyrics

Uh, I met Craig at a church called Redeeming Grace
It’s like he understood my “I don’t wanna be here” face
I didn’t bow my head, not one single prayer
But he just shook my hand, said “I’m glad you’re here”
He says “We’ll all be judged”
But he was never judgmental
And even though my songs don’t belong in no hymnal
He’d quote me my lyrics, slap me on the back
Said, “Man, you’ve got a gift! How you write like that?”

Yeah, I know (I know), he sounds cool right?
Not your typical kid from Sunday School, right?
I still ain’t figured out church yet (Nopе)
But Craig, I get

So now he can’t walk on water, turn thе Napa Valley red
But he just might be tight with a man that did
Now he ain’t the light of the world
But I wish that mine was bright as his
Yeah he just might be tight with a man that is

Woo!
Hey

So when you lose a record deal, yeah, all the perks fade fast
Dealership said, “We’re gonna need to get that mini-van back”
So we were down to one car
And broke as I fell
My wife and six kids and only five seat belts
I needed help (Please), but couldn’t admit I was struggling
Said, “Craig, it’s all good” (it’s all good)
But he knew it all wasn’t
A “Hey man I’m prayin’ for you” would’ve been sufficient, but nah
He took roadside assistance to a whole other level
To sacrificial heights
Showed up at the ballpark after my son’s game one night
In two cars, with his wife Laura watchin’ from the other
I said, “What in the world are y’all doing here, brother?”
He just laughed inside that old Chrysler Town and Country van
With the keys, and a title, and a pen in his hand
Said, “Man, all you got to do is sign and it’s yours”
I said “Nah, no way”, but he wouldn’t take “nah” for an answer
He said “Please do, somebody did this for me once, just let me do this for you”
We argued about it for a little while
Then I teared up, and Craig smiled

So now he can’t walk on water
Or turn Napa Valley red
But he just might be tight with a man that did
Now he ain’t the light of the world
But I wish that mine was bright as his
Yeah, he just might be tight with a man that is

Woo-ooh
Ay, ay, ay

Yeah, I know he sounds cool right?
Not your typical kid from Sunday School, right?
I still ain’t figured out church yet (Nope)
But Craig, I get

So now he can’t walk on water, or turn the Napa Valley red
But he just might be tight with a man that did
Oh he ain’t the light of the world
But I wish mine was bright as his
Yeah, he just might be tight with a man that is

My pride was way too ashamed to be adequately grateful at the moment
But I signed the dotted line, and I drove the kids home
And when the cop pulled up beside us
At the light, they didn’t have to duck
‘Cause thanks to Craig
They were all buckled up
