"O! Grace" as written by and Jason Molina....
She said, "I've been the stockyard's pony"
She said, "I've been the mountain engine's roll
From Chicago to West Virginia,
I've been as lonesome as the world's first ghost
As lonesome as the world's first ghost

But out here even the prairie doubts the horizon
All I have to do is prove that I'm not pure
Oh, the right words come
But I ain't talking
The devil's mean but he's honest just as sure
Oh, he is honest just as sure"

Oh Grace, if you stop believing
That don't mean that it just goes away
It's a long way between horizons
And it gets farther every day
Oh, Grace
Whoa, Grace

Oh Grace, if you stop believing
That don't mean it just goes away
It's a long way between horizons
And it gets farther every day
Oh, Grace
Whoa, Grace

She says, "But I know a man whose heart is restless
He's never home, and he's never gone
And he had some good things
But he lost them
Like everything he ever set his heart on
Oh, that he set that heart upon

Oh boy, if you stop believing
That don't mean that I just walked away
It's a long way between horizons
And it gets farther every day"
Oh, Grace
Oh, Grace
