Capo third fret
(*)--2nd time only

Intro 	 D

His pulpits a corner
  On 19th and Main
His grip on the gospel
His one claim to fame

He hurls fire and brimstone
  At the cars passing by
(G)              (D)
And he offers salvation
(A)                (D)
For the savior on high

His khakis are tatered
  And he aint bathed in weeks
His bout with the bottle
Shows up on his cheeks

He looks like a scarecrow
  A sight to behold
(G)                  (D)
As he work for the shepherd
(A)                    (D)
Bringin' lambs to the fold

(C)              (G)
He points to the bible
He holds in his hands
(G)                      (D)
Says I'm proof that the good lord
(E)          (G)
Can save any man

        Son it ain't what you're drivin
 	 (G)                     (D)
        Or the clothes that you wear
        Material possessions
 	 (G)              (A)
        Won't matter up there
        And someday in heaven  
        When the Angels all sing
        These rags that I'm wear'n
 	        (A)        (C)(G)(D)
        Will be fit for a king

He's fighting a fever
In spite of the chill
He pulls up his collar     
And he speaks of God's will

His body is weakened
But his faith is still strong
(G)                     (D)
For he's filled with conviction
(A)                  (D)
For the mission he's on

(C)                (G)
He knows soon in heaven
He'll be homeless no more
(G)                    (D)
And his work will soon echo
From that far distant shore


         And some day in heaven
         When the angles all sing
         These rags that I'm wearing
 	  (A)                (C)(G)(D)
         Will be fit for a king

Shooter recorded this with his old band Stargunn. I don't believe it was ever released, but the album is called "The only way up is down." It is also floating around on a Stargunn live bootleg.
