Gospel Changes

(Song begins at 2:00)
By Jack Williams
Rise Up Singing chapter: Gospel, p.93

I'm not sure that this totally counts as gospel in the general sense...

The prodigal son he'd been away a while
He was working his way back home now over many a ragged mile
When he finally crossed the river and his father saw him near
There was a joyful sound for all the world to hear
C G Am - / F G C - / F - C Am / C G C -

I listened to what the Good Book said and it made good sense to me
Talkin' 'bout reaping what you're sowing, people trying to be free
Now we've got new names and faces this time around
Gospel changes, Lord, still going down
C Em F Am / C Em F G / Am F E F / C G C -

Jesus, he did not doubt his gifts
Though he knew that he had not long to live
He took care of the business of teaching us how to fly
Then he bowed his head and laid down to die

Jerusalem, I see you standing high
But if you lose your salvation, there'll be no tears left to cry
Now some men worship a golden calf while others are bought and sold
And if we live like that, brother we pay the toll
