lyrics

It's high time to pack it up and hit another town.
And it's a crime how easily I fleece another clown.
I gotta go. The gospel and the money here's run dry.
I'm Brother Joe. I always make a killing before I fly.

Chorus:
Hey hey, the Pentecostal with the hand of gold.
Hey hey, the Pentecostal with the big tent show. Yeah.
People can I get a witness!
I'm making it my business.

A con man, I always check the weather before I leave.
Sleight-of-hand, I got another spirit up my sleeve.

Chorus

Hey Sunshine, I make a cripple walk and blind men see.
So drop a dime and see if I can really set you free.

Chorus
