So Help Me God

Album: Half a Lifetime
Jason Craig






This one's about a guy who spent his life serving the public from a small office behind the scenes. Often maligned, rarely appreciated...folks like Alan really are the backbone of the services Americans have come to know and expect. Thanks pardner.

So help me God. Forty-some odd years ago he came in for his first day They showed him to a metal desk where he put his things away Started slogging through a pile of papers three feet high Spent his first four hours crossing Ts and dotting Is But in between Forms 306 and 2804 An older guy in suit and tie took him through a door Right to the boss’s office by a flag and had him stand Said “please repeat after me” and he raised his right hand So help me God That’s what he swore Four simple words Meant so much more Support and defend Against all odds To bear true faith So help me God This thing that started as a job turned into a career And he served his country with distinction for his share of years ‘Cause privately a public servant’s all he longed to be And he learned and taught a thing or two about integrity To him the Oath of Office wasn’t just something to say It framed a way to live his life that guides him to this day Looking back on all he did he may regret some things But he won’t regret his service or the honor that it brings So help me God That’s what he swore So help him God To do much more Watch over him And all he does So help him God Like he helped us He’s got a whole new set of dreams for this stage of his life To build a cabin on the water and to spend time with his wife As he closes one more chapter and he turns another page We all know he’s done more good than most of the men his age So help him God Now we implore Just help him God To do much more Watch over him And all he does So help him God Like he helped us So help him God Like he helped us
