The Master's Call written and recorded by Marty Robbins
C Am When I was but a young man I was wild and full of fire C Am A youth within my teens but full of challenge and desire C Am I ran away from home and left my mother and my dad F G7 Am I know it grieved them so to think there only boy was bad
C Am I fell in with an outlaw bunch there names were known quite well C Am How many times we robbed and plundered I could never tell C Am This kind of sinful living leads only to a fall F G7 Am I learned that much and more the night I heard my Master call
F C F C One night we rustled cattle a thousand head or so F C Am And started them out on the trail that leads to Mexico G7 C F When a norther started blowing and lightning flashed about C F G7 C I thought someone was calling me I thought I heard a shout
Em And at that moment lightning struck not twenty yards from me F C And left there was a giant cross where once there'd been a tree Am Dm This time I know I heard a voice a voice so sweet and strange Em Am A voice that came from everywhere a voice that called my name
C Am So frightened I was thinking of sinful deeds I'd done C Am I failed to see the thousand head of cattle start to run C Am The cattle they stampeded were running all around F G7 Am My pony ran but stumbled and he threw me to the ground
F C F C I felt the end was nearing that death would be the price F C Am When a mighty bolt of lightning showed the face of Jesus Christ G7 C F And I cried oh Lord forgive me don't let it happen now C F G7 C I want to live for you alone oh God these words I vow
Em My wicked past unfolded and I thought of wasted years F C When another bolt of lightning killed a hundred head of steers Am Dm And the others rushed on by me but I was left to live Em Am The master had a reason life is His to take or give
C Am A miracle performed that night I wasn't meant to die C Am The dead ones formed a barricade least six or seven high C Am And right behind it there was I afraid but safe and sound F G7 Am I cried and begged for mercy then and there upon the ground
C Am A pardon I was granted my sinful soul set free C Am No more to fear the angry waves upon life’s stormy seas C Am Forgiven by the love of God a love that will remain F G7 Am I gave my life and soul the night the Savior called my name
