“More Than Stars”

Verse
There’s nothing in this world
Quite so hard to do
As pretending that you’re right
When you’re wrongfully accused
But there was nothing you could do
You didn’t know it would go that far
As they read your rights to you
In the back of the police car

Chorus
More than stars
Fall in Alabama
More than steel
Gets rolled in Birmingham
Sometimes angels
Fly up from Montgomery
But the devil is waiting for them
When they land

Verse
Then the judge arranged a date
And told you where to be
You had a heart chock-full of faith
You just knew you’d be set free
So you wore a brand new suit
On the morning of your trial
You thought you were bound for glory
But you missed it by a mile

Chorus
‘Cause more than stars
Fall in Alabama
More than steel
Gets rolled in Birmingham
Sometimes angels
Fly up from Montgomery
But the devil is waiting for them
When they land

Verse
Last night they hauled me in
And asked me “Where’d he go?”
“Did he run up to the mountains?”
“Or is he down in Mexico?”
And right then the law-man knew
When I broke down and cried
That there was nothing he could do
‘Cause you were over on the other side

Chorus
And more than stars
Fall in Alabama
More than steel
Gets rolled in Birmingham
Sometimes angels
Fly up from Montgomery
But the devil is waiting for them
When they land
