We’re the scallywags of Archer Street
we don’t know when to quit
we go to shows, we sing out loud, we scuttle every pit
but when it comes to praising God, we always bow our knee
we go to Him, we sing out loud, it’s Him that made us free

From the depths of Sheol to the heart of shalom
we will stand strong together, we will never be alone
fill our cups full of courage, may our face hit the floor
when we are at our lowest point we stand at heaven’s door

The line is drawn our minds are set
we now know where we stand
it’s a brotherhood of men that stood
we follow the Father’s plan
the faith that lies within our hearts doesn’t come from the halls of a church
it’s not about religion, it’s about a friend, and it’s Him that gave us worth

    General Comment'from the depths of sheol...' etc is how it starts

    and then it goes to 'we're the scalawags...'

    in my version

    My InterpretationFirst of all, you gotta know what the words Sheol and Shalom mean to understand the song. Sheol(She'ol) is the grave or pit, Shalom, in this sense, means prosperity. So from the lowest point of life to the height of prosperity, we will stand with the one who saved us.
