MercyMe and Walker Hayes - Craig

Uh

I met Craig at a church called Redeeming Grace (what's up?)
It's like he understood my "I don't want to be here" face
I didn't bow my head, not one single prayer
Well, he just shook my hand, said "I'm glad you're here"
He says, "we'll all be judged" but he was never judgmental
And even though my songs, they don't belong in no hymnal
He'd quote me my lyrics, slap me on the back
Said "Man you've got a gift! How you write like that?"

Yeah, I know (I know), he sounds cool right?
Not your typical kid from Sunday School, right?
I still ain't figured out church yet (nope)
But Craig, I get

Said, nah he can't walk on water or turn the Napa Valley red
But he just might be tight with a man that did
Now, he ain't the light of the world
But I wish that mine was bright as his
Yeah, he just might be tight with a man that is
(Nor as good)
(Woo, ayy)

So when you lose a record deal, y'all the perks fade fast
Dealership said, "We're going to need to get that mini-van back"
So we were down on one car
And broke as I felt
Had my wife and six kids and only five seat belts
I needed help (please) but I couldn't admit I was struggling
I said, "Craig, it's all good" (It's all good)
But he knew it all wasn't
A "Hey man I'm praying for you" would've been sufficient but nah
He took roadside assistance to a whole other level, to sacrificial heights (woo)
Showed up at the ballpark after my son's game one night
In two cars, with his wife Laura, watching from the other (hey what's up, Laura)
Said, "What in the world are y'all doing here, brother?" (What in the world?)
He just laughed inside that old Chrysler Town and Country van
With the keys and a title, and a pen in his hand
Said "Man, all you got to do is sign and it's yours"
I said "Nah, no, no way"
But he wouldn't take "Nah" for an answer (he wouldn't take no)
He said "Please dude (please dude), somebody did this for me once, just let me do this for you"
We argued about it for a little while
Then I teared up, and Craig smiled (woo)

Said, nah he can't walk on water or turn the Napa Valley red
But he just might be tight with a man that did
Now, he ain't the light of the world
But I wish that mine was bright as his
Yeah, he just might be tight with a man that is

Uh
Woo ooh
Ayy ayy
'Sup

Yeah, I know, he sounds cool right?
Not your typical kid from Sunday School, right?
I still ain't figured out church yet
But Craig, I get (ooh whoa whoa whoa whoa)

Said, nah he can't walk on water or turn the Napa Valley red
But he just might be tight with a man that did
Well, he ain't the light of the world
But I wish that mine was bright as his
Yeah, he just might be tight with a man that is

Well, my pride was way too ashamed to be adequately grateful at the moment
But I signed the dotted lin, and I drove the kids home
And when the cop pulled up beside us at the light, they didn't have to duck
'Cause thanks to Craig, they were all buckled up
