Lyrics From True Believer


Travelin' Shoes
MPG3

Mama always reminds me that we're only passin' through
The treasures of this world are not for us to hold on to
She says the way we're headed
Will take us where we're bound
And we can not lay are journey down

Chorus
Because all god's children need travelin' shoes
To walk the road that's narrow but it's true
We can't stop here we're just passin' through
That's why all god's children need travelin' shoes

My bags are pack and waiting and I'm headed for the door
The train Is at the station , got my ticket and I'll board
The brakeman swings his lantern
Lit with never ending love
And mama I can't thank you near enough

Chorus repeats twice

We can't stop here we're just passin' through
That's why all god's children need travelin' shoes

I Got A Plan
MPG3

I believe this world we live in
Is like a big blue door
That we come in to and then we pass thru
Like so many have done before
And I believe a baby is a miracle
So is the love that life becomes
So begins this beautiful journey
With our Father and with His Son

(Chorus)
Leading and Guiding
And giving us strength in our faith
I know itís thru grace
I got a plan to be with angels
I got the sweetest promise there has ever been
I got a hand full of people I love
And I want to be there with them
A seven-day saint or a seven-day sinner
It seems my soul is always on the run
But I got a plan to be with angels
I love where angels are cominí from

Sometimes I have this vision
I see that river, and I see the shore
And I walk down into the water
ĎTill I donít want, Ďtill I donít want no more
I wake up with this peaceful feeling
In my heart, my soul and my mind
What was once a weight on my shoulders
Is now the hand of something divine

(Chorus)
Leading and Guiding
And giving me strength in my faith
I know itís thru grace
I got a plan to be with angels
I got the sweetest promise there has ever been
I got a hand full of people I love
And I want to be there with them
A seven-day saint or a seven-day sinner
It seems my soul is always on the run
But I got a plan to be with angels
I love where angels are cominí from

I Got a plan to be with angels
I love where angels are cominí from

The Walk
MPG3

Down our long dusty driveway
I didn't wan't to go
But I set with tears in my eyes wondering
Daddy took me by the hand
Looked out at the school bus and his little man and said,
"Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Chorus
Cause I took this walk your walking now
Boy, I've been in your shoes
You can't hold back the hands of time
It's just something you've got to do
So dry eyes I understand just what your going through
Cause I took this walk with my old man
Boy, I've been in your shoes

Down our long dusty driveway
I set my mind to go
I was eighteen and wild and free and wondering
Daddy took me by the hand
Look at the world and his grown man and said,
"Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Chorus

Down our long and dusty driveway
This time we both would go
He had old and gray
And his mind was wandering
Daddy took me by the hand
Said, "I know where were going and I understand
Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Chorus

Still Water
MPG3

(Duet With Donna Mc Elroy)

Lord, I talk too much and say the wrong things
Time and time again
Still when times get rough yours is the voice
That says I can come home again

Chorus
Beside the still water
This world can't touch me
You're my shield - You're my true friend indeed
You're the still water where I find my peace

When I feel for from you all I need do
Is sit and whisper your name
You're the one place I know where I can go
And find love - that never will change

Chorus

When I feel I can't go on
I can feel you hand gently lead me home

Yes you are Your the still water
Water
Where I find my peace

Circles
MPG3

Thereís one around my finger
One around my coffee cup
One around the hands of time
And that big orange ball a cominí up
Thereís one around my eight to five
Four beneath me when I drive
An extra one for overtime circles
Thereíll be one in the hugs around my legs
And one around my waist
And one around the table holdiní hands and sayiní grace

(Chorus)
I thank God for circles
For you for me for family and friends
I thank God for circles
May they go Ďround and Ďround and never have to end

Thereís one around the block
Thereís always one around the bend
Any to and from you go
And back again
Some are green and some are golden
Summer turns to winter cold
And into spring the seasons roll circles
Thereíll be one around the candles
One around the birthday cakes
One around the table holdiní hands and sayiní grace

(Chorus)
I thank God for circles
For you for me for family and friends
I thank God for circles
May they go Ďround and Ďround and never have to end

(Bridge)
Thereís one around the world
That goes around so we can see it all
One around the halo
When we're called

(Chorus)
I thank God for circles
For you for me for family and friends
I thank God for circles
May they go Ďround and Ďround and never have to end
I thank God for family circles, may we find and have so many more of them

It Wasn't His Child
MPG3

He was her man, she was his wife
And late one winter night
He knelt by her
As she gave birth
But it wasn't his child,
It wasn't his child

Yet still he took him as his own
And as he watched him grow
It brought him joy
But it wasn't his child
It wasn't his child

But like a father he was strong and kind
And I believe he did his best
It wasn't easy for him
But he did all could
His son was different from the rest
It wasn't his child
It wasn't his child

And when the boy became a man
He took his father's hand
And soon the world
Would all know why
It wasn't his child
It wasn't his child

But like a father he was strong and kind
And I believe he did his best
It wasn't easy for him
But he did all could
He grew up with his hands in wood
And he died with his hands in wood
He was God's child,
He was God's child

He was her man
She was his wife
And late one night
He knelt by her
As she gave birth
But it wasn't his child
It was God's child

800 Pound Jesus
MPG3

I saw a garage sale
Pulled up in the yard
Found a statue of Jesus
It was eight feet tall
He held out his arms
And he seemed all alone
So I loaded him up
And drove him home

Out by my driveway he
Looks down the street
With his long hair and sandals made
Of rebar and concrete
I painted him white with a long purple robe
He's a rock of ages on our gravel road

Chorus
He's an eight-hundred pound Jesus
Standing taller than a tree
He's an eight-hundred pound Jesus
A bigger man than you or me

I thought loosin' my job was
The end of the world
Till my best pal ran off with my best girl
I felt suicidal with no real friends
So I walked outside with a rope in my hand

Out by that statue there's a big old tree
So I stood on his shoulders
And I counted to three
I had every intention of buying the farm
But when I jumped off he caught me in his arms

Chorus

I wanted to return the favor to him
Cause I never had a more solid friend
So I planted some flowers
All around his feet
And I bought him a flock
Of ceramic sheep

Chorus

He's a bigger man
Than you or me
