REVEREND LEE WENT DOWN TO THE WATER
AND HE PRAYED TO THE LORD ‘BOUT OLD SATAN’S DAUGHTER
IT SEEMS IN A DREAM WHILE HE LAY SLEEPING
SHE CLIMBED IN HIS BED STARTS RUBBIN’ AND WEEPIN’
SHE WAS TWISTING AND TURNING – SHE WAS BEGGIN’ AND PLEADIN’
SHE WAS LOVIN’ AND BURNIN’ SHE WAS PANTING AND BREATHIN’

    “REVEREND LEE”, SHE SAYS, WELL LORD KNOWS I LOVE YOU CHILD
    I WOULD NOT EVEN PLACE GOD ABOVE YOU
    REVEREND LEE - HE LIFTED HIS ARMS HIGH SAYS”
    “HEAVENLY FATHER TAKE ME HOME TO THE SKY”
    
SAID “LORD PLEASE DON’T TEMPT ME
NOT DOWN WHERE SHE TOUCHED ME
MY MIND IS SO HAZY AND ANYBODY IS HUNGRY”

    JUST THEN THE THUNDER GREW LOUDER
    MUCH DARKER IN CONDITION
    JUST THEN A VOICE SAID
    “GOD CANNOT BE PETITIONED”

JUST THEN THE DEVIL EMERGED FROM THE WATER
AND HE SAID IN A DRY VOICE – “YOUR GOD WILL NOT BARTER”
REVEREND LEE RAN SCREAMIN’ FROM THE WATER
HE WAS HOTLY PURSUED BY OLD SATAN’S DAUGHTER
SHE SAID REVEREND LEE, DO IT TO ME
REVEREND LEE, DO IT TO ME

COMMENT:
Lust, Lust, Lust,
God, what a joy to sing and cut loose on this song. I never got tired of it. Look forward to singing it again - from a whole new perspective:
  And O.M.G., you have to listen to the intoxicating guitar playing by the one and only CHUCK DAY!
What a pleasure to work with a man so sensitive, talented, smart, and SO sexy. I used to have dreams about him quite often in that era. I never told my musicians when that happened. I kept all those inspiring dreams for myself and my songs. He died in 2008. I think of him and miss him still.
