i just heard this on a local radio station.i think it is a new one by don rigsby,it is about a man being arrested and accused of being a christian,but in court the judge said there was not enough evidence to convict him,so he was found not guilty,but this turned out to be only a dream,so he gave his life to the Lord,to make sure there was enough evidence when the real judge comes.

I couldn't figure out one of the words at all but hope I got the rest right ...

I was walking down the Avenue one bright and sunny day
When the police came and got me and they carried me away
They took me in and ____ me as a Christian through and through
When the Judge looked down at me, he said this can't be true

Chorus:
You've been charged with being Christian but we can not so convict
There's not enough hard evidence to make the charges stick
Though they say you've been a true believer, no proof do I see
You've been charged with being Christian but we'll have to set you free

There's no record of you praying when you lay you down to bed
You don't go to Church on Sunday, that old Magistrater said
And you break the Ten Commandments, disregard the Golden Rule
I've seen my share of Christians but not a single one like you

Chorus:

Well I woke up from my dream, perspiration on my face
I saw it all most clearly as the words upon the slate
And I pledged my life to Jesus, the remainder of my years
With the words I heard in my dreams still ringing in my ears

Chorus:

Here is the Youtube I transcribed it from

The staff at KJAB-FM radio in Mexico, MO have played this song a few times and it's a reminder to me every time I hear it! Here's a link:

It's a 24-hour station so the song could pop up anywhere! They broadcast a lot of old-time, Southern gospel and (my favorite) bluegrass gospel, too. Check it out and I hope you enjoy.

I heard this forever ago and am looking for who did it and a copy:

If you were arrested
For being a Christian
Would they have enough evidence
To help convict you?

And if <BLAH; I can't remember the words but it works the same way>

Chorus:
Evidence!
Evidence!
Would they have enough evidence?
Evidence!
Evidence!
Could they put you awaaaay?

Any ideas?

Pretty sure the song is called evidence by larnelle harris. I loved the song too. Haven't heard it in quite a few years myself n haven't been able 2 find it online either.
