Words and music: Christopher Wren Performer: Johnny Cash (1970) From: Guitar Picker - www.gospelmusic.org.uk Gospel Road C Am Two weary travellers from Jerusalem F G Walking along with a stranger on a dusty highway C Am Two weary travellers from Jerusalem F G Walking with a stranger on the dusty road C F And they walked another hour to Emmaus town C G And shared their supper till the sun went down Am When He broke the bread, word spread around F G That Christ was on that Gospel Road Matthew, Mark, and Luke and John Told about Jesus on the dusty highway How His pillow were the stones Where He laid His head How the hungry five thousand on the hill were fed How they sent Him to the cross And He came back and said To walk upon that Gospel Road Yes, and Paul and Silas in the midnight jail For talking ‘bout Jesus on the dusty highways Paul and Silas in the midnight jail For talking ‘bout Jesus on the dusty road And they sang out rejoicing and the jail split wide The doors busted open and they walked outside But they went back to preaching through the countryside Walking on the Gospel Road So two by two, three by three They walked in His footsteps on the dusty highways Two by two and three by three They walked in His footsteps on the dusty road And they died in shipwrecks and in the lion’s den And they died on crosses and the spears of men But when one fell, two more would start again To walk upon that Gospel Road Hey, won’t you come on with me from Jerusalem And walking to Emmaus on that dusty highway? Hey, won’t you come on with me from Jerusalem And walking to Emmaus on that dusty road? The travelling gets harder and with each rebuff Some turn back because they’ve had enough But Jesus told you it was gonna be rough To walk upon His Gospel RoadHome
