On a cold and windy street an old man goes to sleep as the snow begins to fall up in Chicago. there's no place left at the mission where he became a christian so he lays there on the side walk and dreams of his new home

Here are the entire lyrics as I recall

ON A COLD AND WINDY STREET
AN OLD MAN GOES TO SLEEP
AS THE SNOW BEGINS TO FALL UP IN CHICAGO

THERES NO ROOM LEFT AT THE MISSION
WHERE HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN
SO HE LAYS THERE ON THE SIDEWALK
AND DREAMS OF HIS NEW HOME

(Chorus)

WHERE O ONE SLEEPS ON THE GOLDEN STREETS OF HEAVEN
NO ONES COLD AND HUNGRY OR ALONE
AND SOMEWHERE IN THE NIGHT JESUS WALKS DOWN MAIN STREET
AND TAKES ANOTHER HOMELESS TO HIS HOME

THERES A LADY DRESSED IN RAGS
PUTTING OLD CANS IN HER BAGS
AS THE RAIN BEGINS TO FALL IN ATLANTA
A CARDBOARD BOX HER ONLY HOME
IT HOLDS EVERYTHING SHE OWNS
BUT DOES ANYONE REALLY NOTICE
AND WILL THEY MISS HER WHEN SHES GONE

(Chorus)

WHERE O ONE SLEEPS ON THE GOLDEN STREETS OF HEAVEN
NO ONES COLD AND HUNGRY OR ALONE
AND SOMEWHERE IN THE NIGHT JESUS WALKS DOWN MAIN STREET
AND TAKES ANOTHER HOMELESS TO HIS HOME

ON A COLD AND WINDY STREET
AN OLD MAN GOES TO SLEEP
AS THE SNOW BEGINS TO FALL UP IN CHICAGO

(Fade to end)
