Lyrics

Old Man Joe

Written By: Tim Chastain

I met a man a few years ago.
He said, "Hello my name is Joe.
Can I sit here and rest my load?"
He looked to be sixty three.
He had humble eyes that were full of peace.
We sat for a while as he talked to me.
He said I lost my wife in ninty five.
I blamed God for taking her life.
She was the love of my life.
It took ten years of being alone,
till I realized it wasn't God's fault.
Its just the way that life is gonna be.
Chorus:
So here I am on my own.
Though I am not alone.
I've got a friend who is close to me.
Closer than anyone can be.
He's my friend even when I'm not me.
My friends name is Jesus.
I'm a friend of Jesus.

I'll never forget the day I met,
old man Joe and the things he told while
sitting on a bench, talking bout his friend.
Was he God sent? I think so.
Cause I was as low as I could go.
I needed someone to share my load.
Most my life was spent on the run.
I was living at the end of a gun.
I had no place to call home.
Running on empty. Losing my sanity.
Up and down I stayed strung out,
til the day I met this friend of old man Joe.
Chorus:
Tag:
I met a man the other day.
Sitting on a bench with tears on his face.
I asked, "Could I sit here and rest my load."

No Connection

Written By: Tim Chastain

No Connection

Middle of the night
and I'm on my own.
Cold outside and I'm all alone.
I head down town
and theirs nothing to see.
Things ain't what they used to be.

Chorus:
No connection.
To the life I used to live.
No connection.
To the man I used to be.
No connection.
I am not the same.
Lord I owe it all you .

Walking by a local club,
I didn't want to enter in.
Couple of friends came staggering out,
said, "Man!, where've you been?"
You won't believe the change in my life.
The only thing I know is that I
owe it all to Christ.

Bridge:
The things I used to do no longer I desire.
Since God filled me with His consuming fire.
I want to lift my voice and give you praise.
For saving my soul that was destined for Hell .....

Honky Tonk Preacher Man

Written By: Tim Chastain


Honky Tonk Preacher Man

Born in the valley.
Over by a mountain.
Applachia is my home.
Up where the hills are copper.
Down where the river rages.
Out on highway sixty four... country.

Raised up in a Christian home.
Momma taught me right from wrong,
teaching me the golden rule.
I learned to sing and play guitar.
I had plans to be a star.
Gonna take it to Nashville.
Chorus:
But I'm a honky tonkin' bible teaching,
devil chasing, guitar singer
Son of a preacher man.
I don't drink and I don't smoke.
I've been sealed by the Holy Ghost.
I'm washed in the blood of the lamb.
I'm a Honky tonk preacher man.

Playing towns in every state.
Going across the USA.
I'm just a man on a mission.
Doing things the way I was raised.
Singing songs bout a man who saves.
I do it all in Jesus name.

The Tomb

Written By: Tim Chastain

The Tomb
The sun refused to shine
as the clouds filled the sky.
Time to take the body from the cross.
They carried Him away to borrowed tomb.
They laid Him in the rich man's grave.
The stone was rolled to seal His fate.
Tears streamed down their face.

Day turned to night.
Night turned to day.
They were afraid for there lives.
All hope was lost at the sight of the cross.
Faith was sealed in a tomb.
Till the break of dawn, Easter morn,
love came shining through.

Staring at the tomb
she look's inside.
Tears fell from her eyes.
She takes off running back to the place,
where Peter and John were hiding.
And they heard her say,
"He's not there! That ol' stone has been rolled away!"

He's alive....... My Lord HE is alive.
Halalujah...... My Lord HE is alive.
HE's Alive....Jesus is alive

There's an empty tomb in Jerusalem.
Where my savior was laid. After three days He opened His eyes.
That ol' grave couldn't hold Him inside.
