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

Intro 	 D

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Chorus

 	 *(D)
         And some day in heaven
 	                      (G)
         When the angles all sing
 	  (D)
         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.
