Vegas Bitch

she was born in a gutter her mother was a whore
 selling junk in her trunk in back of the store
 she grew up on the street
 no shoes for her feet
 over time although many years had passed she had every reason to grasp
 the true nature of why she was born
 she was being bread as a Vegas bitch to work the strip
 taking in whiskey drinkers with fast thinkers
 playing the slots with the wild cherries
 some folk even wondered if she would ever marry
 getting punched in the face more times to ever mention
 but giving up her lifestyle was way far out of question
 had her pimp named Tommy the same as her mommy
 he would often work the numbers at their local bar
 getting high and then 69 that fast paced world sure did shine
 still there was something lingering an emptiness inside
 often she wanted to get away to run & hide
 she wanted to build a solid foundation with a white picked fence & home
 for years she fought the emptiness all alone
 then one day she met a stranger on the street
 who spoke to her the true wisdom of God
 invited her to attend church but she still wanted to flirt
 next thing you know her said a little prayer for her and went on his way
 inside somehow that made her day
 for once she had a purpose to live
 a chance at which to forgive
 then she spread eagle on the floor to bow her head to pray
 inviting king Jesus to come into her heart to give her a brand new start
 then next day she told Tommy the pimp she wasn't doing tricks no more
 that's when he hit the Vegas bitch & knocked her to the floor
 onto her surprise the beating would subside
 then a light came into her room in the late month of June
 a voice from heaven to seal her fate to come to him before its too late
 a full surrender was on her way & she got born again
 now the moral of the story is my friend
 never give up on God cause he never gave up hope on you
 now I'm through with the Vegas bitch renewed
 telling her story down at the shelter for everyone to hear
 a beacon of light to a hurting world in need of love from God up above
