Poor Imitation Of God
written by John Hiatt

CHORUS:
Iím a poor imitation of god
Iím a poor imitation of god
Iím a poor imitation of god
Iím a poor imitation of god

I can duel the devil in my sleep
All the day waiting for my midnight creep
If you love me, donít expect a lot
Iím a poor imitation of god

CHORUS

Well, I can steal your heart from you
Hide it in my walking shoes
Leave before the band gets hot
Iím a poor imitation of god

CHORUS

I do better, I do better
On my own
Like a sick dog, Like a sick dog
Ainít got no home
Onto thine image made
But, on that day the mold was broken,
Iím afraid

CHORUS

I'm a poor imitation of god
Cobras coming out of my eyes
Land of a thousand dances
And the chances are
Sharkskin will materialize

Iím a poor imitation of god
But there ainít nobody else
Canít you see, girl, Iím trying to love ya
But I canít even love myself

CHORUS
