To the church he was a sinner
To the sinners he was a saint
My dad's only brother
I just called him frank

He spent most of his time
In honky-tonk's and bars
He could quote the good book
Or he could show you scars

To a fourteen year old boy
He was a walk'n mystery
I'd ask him about those friends of his
And he'd say to me

You can't save a soul that's already been saved
You can't help a drown'n man from watching from the bank
You gotta get out there with 'em
Look 'em in their eye and see their faces
Cause you know a candle shines much brighter
In darker places

Three years ago today
He left us all here
Stand'n on a hillside
Fight'n back the tears
It was quite a congregation
From all walks of life
Preachers and drunkards
Skin both black and white
He got us all together
Just like he said it's 'posed to be
One last time frank try'n to make us see

You can't save a soul that's already been saved
You can't help a drown'n man from watching from the bank
You gotta get out there with 'em
Look 'em in their eye and see their faces
Cause you know a candle shines much brighter
In darker places

You can't save a soul that's already been saved
You can't help a drown'n man from watching from the bank

You gotta get out there with 'em
Look 'em in their eye and see their faces
Cause you know a candle shines much brighter

Yeah you know a candle shines much brighter
In darker places

In darker places
