The Tramp on the Street recorded by Hank Williams [3/4 time] written by Grady and Hazel Cole C
F Only a tramp was Lazarus sad fate
C He who lay down at the rich man's gate
F He begged for the crumbs from the rich man to eat
G7 C He was only a tramp found dead on the street
F He was some mother's darlin' he was some mother's son
C Once he was fair and once he was young
F Some mother rocked him her darlin' to sleep
G7 C But they left him to die like a tramp on the street
F Jesus who died on Calvary's tree
C Shed His life's blood for you and for me
F They pierced His sides His hands and His feet
G7 C And they left Him to die like a tramp on the street
F He was Mary's own darlin' he was God's chosen Son
C Once He was fair and once He was young
F Mary she rocked Him her darlin' to sleep
G7 C But they left Him to die like a tramp on the street
F If Jesus should come and knock on your door
C For a place to come in or bread from your store
F Would you welcome Him in or turn Him away
C Then the God's would deny you on the Great Judgment Day
