Brandy Clark's "Pray To Jesus" is a down-to-earth ballad and a sentimental reflection on small town life!

Brandy Clark’s “Pray To Jesus” is a relatable, beautiful ballad that captures the small town feel. NPR said of the song, “Clark is working in a time-honored tradition, yet managing to articulate it in a fresh way.”

The song, which was released in 2013, is accompanied by a video that reels off old family photos and home movies to really reinforce the tone. Check out the video below!

“Pray To Jesus” Lyrics

We live in trailers and apartments too
From California to Kalamazoo
Grow up get married and when that one ends
We hate sleeping alone so we get married again

Don’t wanna be buried in debt or in sin
So we pray to Jesus and we play the lotto
Cause there ain’t but two ways
We can change tomorrow
And there ain’t no genie
And there ain’t no bottle
So we pray to Jesus and we play the lotto

We love to complain about what we can’t fix
Mostly mothers in law traffic and politics
We tell our kids how hard it was back when
Same way our parents did to us back then

Thought we’d be different but we’re just like them
Yeah we pray to Jesus and we play the lotto
Cause there ain’t but two ways
We can change tomorrow
And there ain’t no genie
And there ain’t no bottle
So we pray to Jesus and we play the lotto

We load our kids up in our new used car
And after church we hit the mini mart
Behind the counter up there on the wall
It reads 200 million on the power ball

Six little numbers that could change it all
So we pray to Jesus and we play the lotto
Cause there ain’t but two ways
We can change tomorrow
And there ain’t no genie
And there ain’t no bottle
So we pray to Jesus and we play the lotto
