I Took a Cab Ride (With Reverend Billy) – OR – Exorcise the Demons (From this Girl)


Words and Music by Camille Bright-Smith  Copyright 2010

I took a cab ride with Reverend Billy

I suggested the Starbucks Drive through

Billy was struck by a bolt from up above

And he got on his knees and prayed

He said save her

Save her

She’s a beautiful child of this world

She’s got one hand in the devils paw

The other on her credit card

Exorcise the demons from this girl

Billy was afire with the spirit from above

My body was a shakin’

Felt like I was cracking up

We came upon a wal mart store

I got that devils urge

So the Reverend held me down while I purged

He said save her

Save her

She’s a beautiful child of this world

She’s got one hand in the devils paw

The other on her credit card

Exorcise the demons from this girl

We raced across the city

To the Mercury Café

We ordered local cheeses

And some fair trade lattes

Billy held my fragile head

And fed me apple pie

And we sent those corporate coffee cups

Right  back down to hell to fry

He said save her, save her

She’s a beautiful child of this world

She’s got one hand in the devils paw

The other in her money box

Exorcise the demons from this girl

With admiration and thanks to Reverend Billy (muse), DJ Bonebrake (drummer), Lindy Dickerson (guitars) and Travis Dickerson (organ, production)!

    Awesome! I love it! You’ve outdone yourself this time, Camille. This one has amazing earworm potential.

    Too funny! I think you were singing about me!

    I love this, Camille! It has an early Dixie Chicks vibe to it – and I mean that as very high praise. I’m with Kitch: the refrain is already stuck in my head.

    Camille Bright-Smith – I just hope you’re well and singing. Now its been a while since the Denver visit, already memorialized in your exorcism this grille song and we’ve both moved on – but just checking in to make sure we don’t lose touch TOO much. What was the name of that multiple stage venue with the local feel and the regal proprietress? I always think of returning to preach there. …a good bawdy church! —billy

      Hello Reverend and Happy Fathers Day,

      thanks so much for visiting and commenting. You are thinking of the magical Marilyn at the Mercury Cafe. I am putting a show together to perform there in the fall. Yes, a church of good souls and spirits for sure. How can I help?
