"Only Blood" as written by and Chris Stapleton Angaleena Presley....
She was lost and feelin' lonely, not knowin' what to do
Lookin' for salvation from the backslider pew
The preacher's words brought comfort, and he made her believe
Only blood can set you free

Preacher was a young man, barely twenty-nine
When the seed of love was planted there in that receiving line
Before too long they took their vows and became a family
Only blood can set you free

Only blood is strong enough to wash away your sins
Only blood is strong enough to change the way you've been
Between Jesus and the Devil there's a path for you and me
Only blood can set you free

He put that inscription inside her wedding band
And soon she came to know him like the back of his hand
She clung to her Bible and got down on her knees
Only blood can set you free

Only blood is strong enough to wash away your sins
Only blood is strong enough to change the way you've been
Between Jesus and the Devil there's a path for you and me
Only blood can set you free

He came home one evenin' and much to his surprise
He was greeted with a pistol and a fire in her black eye
She said, I've talked to Jesus and he's been tellin' me
Only blood can set me free

Only blood is strong enough to wash away your sins
Only blood is strong enough to change the way you've been
Between Jesus and the Devil there's a path for you and me
Only blood can set you free
Only blood can set you free
