It was a man whose daughter had died
I believe it was in Gainesville
Bought a cooler and he put her inside
Went to Brownsville Revival
And he asked the congregation
If they could bring her back for him
He was lookin' for a miracle
But it just wouldn't happen,
Just didn't happen

And chameleons cling to the screens
Beaches like snow, holy ghost dreams
And the Brownsville Revival
Is gonna save everybody's soul
So send your dead children
So they could revive them
From the grave
Everyone kneel down and pray

And the Gulf of Mexico
Is a clear and dark blue
And the clouds hung wispy and low
With the red-blood rusty youth
From the lights of Pensacola
I hear the rush of the Navy jets
They was lookin' for the rapture
But it hadn't happened yet
Place your bets

And there's a man with a cross stands on the bridge
Glarin' at the traffic, wonder what it did
And the Brownsville Revival
Is gonna save every single soul
So send your dead children
So they could revive them
From the grave
Everyone kneel down and pray (x4)
