The Gospel According To Luke Recorded by Skip Ewing Written by Skip Ewing and Don Sampson
C G7 C He was an old hand at living and making his way Am G7 F G7 He smelled like old whiskey and he needed a shave Am G7 F His home was an alley off 8th Avenue C G7 F If you had a minute or an hour or two C G7 C He'd tell you the Gospel according to Luke
G7 C Luke carried his Bible in a crown royal bag Am G7 F G7 He wiped off his brow with an old dirty rag Am G7 F He'd tell you straight out just the way he believed C G7 F Faith in the good Lord was all that ya need C G7 C I remember the morning he first preached to me
Am G7 F C He said give to your brother if he is in need Am G7 F G7 Offer up thanks for the gifts you receive Am G7 F There's treasure in heaven for the generous few C G7 C That was the gospel according to Luke
G7 C So I bought him breakfast at the Daylight Cafe Am G7 F G7 Biscuits and gravy hot coffee and eggs Am G7 F He was hungry and ragged hadn't eaten in days C G7 F But I was the one there who felt out of place C G7 C When he folded his hands bowed his head and said grace
G7 C A week ago Wednesday I saw him again Am G7 F G7 Downtown at the mission surrounded by friends Am G7 F Handing out all the change he'd collected that week C G7 F Saying you boys might need this a lot more than me C G7 C I try hard to practice the words that I preach
G7 C He was an old hand at living and making his way Am G7 F G7 He smelled like old whiskey and he needed a shave Am G7 F His home was an alley off 8th Avenue C G7 F If you had a minute or an hour or two C G7 C He'd tell you the Gospel according to Luke
