Hi Request/stereo listener member,

I think all the words are correct but would appreciate any corrections

Jake The Jesus Man
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us-TRcdmYeM

I stood out by the gravel road; a kid just 10 years old
Waiting for the old man I knew would come along
He would stop under the oak tree where I played in the sand
Sat down and talk about Jesus; old Jake the Jesus man

Everybody made fun of him. No one wanted him around
He lived in a shack and his clothes were hand-me-down
His wife left him years ago; she didn’t understand
How Jesus changed a drunkard to Jake the Jesus man

Oh Jake had the kind of eyes I’d never seen before
Why they lit up like the stars when he talked about the Lord
His voice got soft and tender when he told Salvation’s Plan
How Jesus died for sinners, old Jake the Jesus man

Well I grew up, became a man hearin’ old Jake say
That Jesus died on Calvary to wash our sins away
I gave my heart to Jesus one day there in the sand
Got on the road to Heaven with Jake the Jesus man

To me old Jake was special. I’ll never forget the day
That Momma called to tell me old Jake had passed away
They found him by the gravel road; his old Bible in his hand
And a smile upon his weathered face; old Jake the Jesus man

Now old Jake lives in a mansion and he walks the Streets of Gold
No one makes fun of him and he has the finest clothes
Some day I’m gonna join him there on the Golden Strand
He said I’ll wait for you there; oldJake the Jesus man

He said I’ll wait for you son; Old Jake the Jesus man
