He was an old hand at livin' and makin' his way 6m 5 4 5 He smelled like old whiskey and he needed a shave 6m 5 4 His home was an alley off 8th Avenue 1 5 4 If you had a minute or an hour or two 1 5 1 1 1 4 1 He'd tell you the Gospel according to Luke 2. Luke carried his Bible in a crown royal bag He wiped off his brow with an old dirty rag He'd tell you straight out just the way he believed Faith in the good Lord was all that ya need I remember the mornin' he first preached to me 6m 5 4 1 CH: He said give to your brother is he is in need 6m 5 4 5 Offer up thanks for the gifts you receive 6m 5 4 There's treasure in heaven for the generous few 1 5 1 1 1 4 1 That was the gospel according to Luke 3. So I bought him breakfast at the Daylight Cafe Biscuits and gravy, hot coffee, and eggs He was hungry and ragged, hadn't eaten in days But I was the one there who felt out of place When he folded his hands, bowed his head, and said grace lead break 6m 5 4 4 6m 5 4 4 5 5 4.

He was an old hand at livin' and makin' his way He smelled like old whiskey and he needed a shave His home was an alley off 8th Avenue If you had a minute or an hour or two He'd tell you the Gospel according to LukeHome
