Gospel Changes

Original and similar lyrics
(Williams) The Prodigal Son, he'd been away a while, he was working his way back home now over many a ragged mile. When he finally crossed the river and his father saw him near, there was a joyful sound, for all the world to hear. I listened to what the Good Book said and it made good sense to me, talking about reaping what you're sowing, people trying to be free. Now we've got new names and faces, this time around, Gospel changes, Lord, still going down. Jesus, He did not doubt His gifts, though He knew that He had not long to live. He took care of the business of teaching us how to fly, then He bowed His head and laid down to die. I listened to what the Good Book said and it made good sense to me, talking about reaping what you're sowing, people trying to be free. Now we've got new names and faces, this time around, Gospel changes, Lord, still going down. Jerusalem I see you standing high, but if you lose your salvation, there'll be no tears left to cry. Now some men worship a Golden Calf while others are bought and sold, and if we live like that, brother we'll pay the toll. I listened to what the Good Book said and it made good sense to me, talking about reaping what you're sowing, people trying to be free. Now we've got new names and faces, this time around, Gospel changes, Lord, still going down. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Gospel changes, Lord, still going down.

If The Good Lord's Willing

JOHNNY CASH "With His Hot And Blue Guitar"
If the good Lord's willing and the creek stays down I'll be in your arms time the moon come around For a taste of love that's shining in your eyes If the rooster crows at the crackin' of the dawn I'll be there just as sure as you're born If the good Lord's willing and the creeks don't rise I'll comb my hair down brush my teeth Shine up slick up dress up neat Get everything looking just right 'Cause I want to look pretty when I see you tonight Just as sure as the rabbits are a jumping in the hollow I'll be there you can bet your bottom dollar If the good Lord's willing and the creeks don't rise If the good Lord's willing and the creek stays low I'll be there a knockin' at your door With a hug and a kiss for the one I idolize I'll wear my suit, my Sunday best, I'll be there lookin' my best If the good Lord's willing and the creeks don't rise I'll feed the mules and stop the hogs feed the cows and chop all the logs Get all of my working done cause tonight we're gonna have lots of fun Just as sure as there ever was a preacher man I'll be there with a ring for your hand If the good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise

War

JOAN OSBORNE "How Sweet It Is"
Chorus: War What is it good for? Absolutely nothing War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker Friend only to the undertaker War means tears To thousands of mothers' eyes When their sons go out to fight And their daughters lose their lives in Chorus War, it's an enemy of all mankind The news of war, it breaks my heart and closes my mind War has caused unrest to a whole generation Induction then destruction And who wants to die in a War What is it good for Absolutely nothing Tell me War What is it good for Ask yourself this question Peace Love and Understanding; Tell me, is there no place for them today They say we must fight to keep our freedom But lord, lord there's got to be a better way War What is it good for Tell me, tell me, tell me War What is it good for Can you tell me now There's got to be a better way

Line On Love

JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY "Life's A Dance"
(David Wills/Rick West/James Dean Hicks) Packed an old cane pole Crossed the shoulder through the woods To the fishing hole I tried to keep up the best I could He answered with love All the questions of his little man Daddy taught me about life In words I could understand You gotta roll up your sleeves Put your back into your work son Always believe in the good Lord's way You gotta hold your mouth right When your going for the big one Once you get a line on love Don't let it get away Driving my old car That we worked on after school He's a football star And his daddy's a proud old fool It's a brand new world Full of girls and teenage dreams When he asks for my advice The answer's still the same You gotta roll up your sleeves Put your back into your work son Always believe in the good Lord's way You gotta hold your mouth right When your going for the big one Once you get a line on love Don't let it get away Once you get a line on love Don't let it get away
