Track Name: We're On A Roll
(vrs 1)
We’ve been up and down and all around this country
Seen ev’ry state this union has to see
Grand Hotels, Award Shows, and the Opry, singin’ any kind of music for a fee
But now we got a new motivation, its burning like a fire within our souls
Its time to spread the message of salvation
After all these years we’re on a roll
________________________________________

(chorus)
Finally our houses are in order, all revved up and rarin’ to go.
To tell the world that time is gettin’ shorter
Yea, after all these years we’re on a roll
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
We’ve been on the list of those who can’t be trusted
Used our friends and scandalized their names
Outside of the law ‘n seldom busted,
Playin’ with our life like it’s a game
But now our feet are on a firm foundation
We’re standin’ tall through any wind that blows
Answerin’ the call, a new creation
Yea, after all these years we’re on a roll
________________________________________
(chorus)

(bridge)
When the role is called up yonder, when the role is called up yonder
When the role is called up yonder, after all these years we’re on a roll

(chorus)

(tag)
After all these years, we’re on a roll …
After all these years, we’re on a roll
Track Name: God Fearin’ Family Man
(vrs 1)
I listen to the Grand Ole Opry just like my daddy did
Banging out the rhythm on the steering wheel
With my good wife beside and my pride ‘n joy behind me
The pressures of this life aint no big deal
I wouldn’t trade a month of Sundays for the way I feel
________________________________________

(chorus)
I’m a church goin’, blue collar, one tenth of ev’ry dollar
Prayer meetin’ Wednesday when I can, God fearin’ family man
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
I live just five minutes from that little country church
Where blessings just like rain pour down on me
But to get my pay, I drive fifty miles one way
Naw, we don’t live a life of luxury
Just an old-time altar farm boy is all I want to be
________________________________________
(chorus)

(guitar break)

(chorus)

(tag)
I’m a God fearin’ family man
Track Name: That’s What Love Looks Like
(vrs 1)
The world paints a picture of what love looks like
A man and a woman in soft candle light
He gives her a ring and she starts to cry
Its pretty, that must be what love looks like
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
Pink ribbons hold back those pretty blonde curls
And when he holds her he’ll tell you he’s holding the world
She gives him a kiss as he tucks her in tight
To a daddy, that’s exactly what love looks like
________________________________________

(vrs 3)
Now let’s look a picture that priceless in cost
It’s not paint on a canvas, it’s blood on a cross
God’s son is dying, forgive them He cries
This portrait of death became a picture of life
________________________________________

(chorus)
That’s what love looks like. It took blood sweat and tears to pay sin’s price
It’s not a pretty picture to see. His body was broken and nailed to a tree
Like a lamb He was slaughtered as He suffered and died
But that’s what love look like

(tag)
Like a lamb He was slaughtered as He suffered and died
That’s what love look like
Track Name: Wherever God Is Moving
(vrs 1)
Sometimes, I think, how can, one person make a difference
Sometimes, seems like, the world will never change
That’s when, God’s word, say child, you better start remembering
There is always something you can do today


(chorus)
Wherever God is movin’, Go help do what God is doin’
The time is short, the laborers are few,
Look around cause there’s a lot of work to do, wherever God is movin’


(vrs 2)
The fields, are white, and now, they’re waiting, for the harvesting
Lift up, your eyes, and see- a world in need
God says, when you, give love, a-way, it’s like the heart of Me
Pouring down compassion on the least of these


(chorus)
Wherever God is movin’, Go help do what God is doin’
The time is short, the laborers are few,
Look around cause there’s a lot of work to do, wherever God is movin’


(bridge)
He’s always up to something; He’s calling you and me,
Why would we ever want to, miss the chance to be….


(chorus)
Wherever God is movin’, Go help do what God is doin’
The time is short, the laborers are few,
Look around cause there’s a lot of work to do,
Wherever God is movin’, Go help do what God is doin’
The time is short, the laborers are few,
Look around cause there’s a lot of work to do, wherever God is movin’
Track Name: Hillbilly Haircut
(chorus)
I got a Hillbilly Haircut and the Holy Ghost in my heart
I got a Hillbilly Haircut and the Holy Ghost in my heart
I may look like C-M-T, but I’m sure into G-O-D
I got a Hillbilly Haircut and the Holy Ghost in my heart
________________________________________

(vrs 1)
I got a five piece band with‘a angels watching over me
I got a five piece band with‘a angels watching over me
We can play and sing all night, ‘cause I know everything’s alright
I got a five piece band with‘a angels watching over me
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
I wear buckles and boots but I’ll trade ‘em for a crown someday
I wear buckles and boots but I’ll trade ‘em for a crown someday
Even if my tunes don’t sell, at least I won’t wind up in hell
I wear buckles and boots but I’ll trade ‘em for a crown someday ________________________________________

(chorus)

(tag)
Now, I may look like C-M-T, but I’m sure into G-O-D
I got a Hillbilly Haircut and the Holy Ghost in my heart
Track Name: It Took A Man Like That
(vrs 1)
When I was a young man, I lived fast and I live hard
Fought my demons, and they left way too may scars
On my heart, on my mind, and on my soul
And led me down a dark and dead end road
Till one night at rock bottom, I read about a man,
That even loved the ones that drove nails in His hand
________________________________________

(chorus)
It took a man like that, to make me open up my eye
Took a man like that, to make me want to change my life
Took a man like that, to save my soul and set me free
Took a man like that, to love the hell right out of me
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
Everyone that knew me, swore I never turn around
I was too far gone, oh but look at me now
I’m right on track, right here where I need to be,
That’s what happens when you fall down on your knees
I know I’m not perfect, ya know there was only one,
And He died for me, the Fathers only son
________________________________________
(chorus)

(instrumental break)

(bridge)
Well, it scares me to think just where I’d be right
Without the best friend I have ever found

(chorus)

(tag)
It took a man like that to love the hell right out of me
Track Name: Are You Ready?
(vrs 1)
If some poor soul should ask for that last dollar you have,
Are you ready to hand it over, are you ready?
If a friend starts going down that wrong road can you turn them around,
Are you ready, will you be there, are you ready?
________________________________________
(chorus)
Lead somebody to the light, take the wrong and turn it right,
God is watchin’ from above, He wants us all washed in the blood
________________________________________
(vrs 2)
If a lost one wants to know what to do to save their soul,
Are you ready, with the answer, are you ready?
________________________________________
-Music Break-
________________________________________
(chorus)
Lead somebody to the light, take the wrong and turn it right,
God is watchin’ from above, He wants us all washed in the blood.
________________________________________
(vrs 3)
And if you child should come to you, with their life broken what will you do,
Are you ready for that moment, are you ready?
And if the Lord should decide to call you home this very night,
Are you ready, for that journey, are you ready?

(tag)
Are you ready, for that journey, are you ready?
Track Name: It Takes Faith
Oooo, it takes faith …. Oooo it takes faith

(vrs 1)
God made a promise long ago, to a man named Abraham.
He said, pack up and get ready to go, I’m given you the Promised Land.
So at seventy-five, more dead than alive, he said goodbye to Ur
He didn’t wait, no his faith was great, He trusted the voice he heard


(chorus 1)
Cause it takes both, a little hard work and a lot of faith
You gotta have both, a little of what cha do mixed together with what cha say
It’s not just believin’ and receivin’ everything from the Father’s hand,
It’s … gettin’ up and goin’ to the Promised Land.


(vrs 2)
Jesus was teachin’ at a home in Capernaum, a crowd had gathered ‘round … when
Four friends of a crippled man dug a hole and lowered him down … well
His need was great and he wouldn’t wait, but the man wasn’t in it alone.
When Jesus saw their faith, He said, “Take up your bed and go home”. Take it up ‘n go home


(chorus 2)
Cause it takes both, a little hard work and a lot of faith
You gotta have both, a little of what cha do mixed together with what cha say
It’s not just believin’ and receivin’ everything from the Master’s hand,
It’s … gettin’ up and goin’ at His command.

(bridge)
Without faith it is impossible (parts) to please the Lord (uni)
And those who earnestly seek Him (parts), He will reward (uni)
Oh, but faith all by itself never did get nothing done
We’re justified by faith its true, but faith never works alone … no … No

(chorus 1)
Cause it takes both, a little hard work and a lot of faith
You gotta have both, a little of what cha do mixed together with what cha say
It’s not just believin’ and receivin’ everything from the Father’s hand,
It’s … gettin’ up and goin’ to the Promised Land.

(chorus 2)
... A little hard work and a lot of faith
You gotta have both, a little of what cha do mixed together with what cha say
It’s not just believin’ and receivin’ everything from the Master’s hand,
It’s …

gettin’ up and goin’ at His command.

Gettin' up and goin' to the Promised Land

Gettin’ up and goin’ at His command.
Track Name: It Might As Well Be Me
(vrs 1)
Dear Lord I need a blessin’, please don’t call it greed
The only way I’ll make it is if you intercede
I won’t act a mess or waste it foolishly
But if you’re gonna do it for someone, it might as well be me.
________________________________________

(chorus)
Come on and touch me, move me, open heaven wide
If you don’t lay your hand on me, I can’t be satisfied
So thrill me, fill me, don’t act selfishly,
But if you’re gonna do it for someone, it might as well be me.
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
Lord, this is not the first time I’ve come back for more
You told me if I needed, there’s plenty more in store
Please don’t overlook the others on their knees,
But if you’re gonna do it for someone, it might as well be me. ________________________________________
(chorus)

(vrs 3)
I’ve borrowed from the blind man who sat there by the side
Who answered Jesus question and wouldn’t be denied
Son of David, please, have mercy let me see,
If you’re gonna do it for someone, it might as well be me.

________________________________________
(chorus 2 Xs)

(tag)
But if you’re gonna do it for someone …
if you’re gonna do it for someone …
if you’re gonna do it for someone, it might as well be me.
Track Name: Graceland
(Verse 1)
It's not a mansion with a big iron gate
It's not in Memphis on a rolling estate
But I'm living in style and I think I'll stay
I moved in the day I got saved.

(Chorus)
I'm living in Graceland, each day of my life
No more worries and no more strife
I'm dwelling in Canaan with no rent to pay
I'm living in Graceland, and I think I'll stay

(Verse 2)
Now I'm not driving a pink Cadillac.
And I'm not performing in a Las Vegas act.
But I'm headed for heaven and I'm living well
I moved out of heartbreak hotel...

Chorus Twice
Track Name: It’s Not Over Til’ God Says It’s Over
(vrs 1)
The doctor said that he would never make it home
Go on, make arrangements, get the fam’ly on the phone
But that was seven years ago, fifteenth day of May
And now little Christian is in the second grade. ________________________________________

(chorus 1)
So don’t tell me that it’s final, till it’s written in stone
Ain’t no time for mournin’, till the last breath is gone.
Get down on your knees, pray and believe
Faith can lift that mountain off your shoulder.
It ain’t over till God says it’s over. ________________________________________

(vrs 2)
So friend don’t you believe that cancer’s killing you.
Little Christian there on the monkey bars, he’s livin’ proof
That God answers prayers every day in this life
And He’s got one just for you, so you can’t give up the fight.
________________________________________
(chorus 2)
And don’t you tell me that it’s final, or that it’s written in stone
Ain’t no need for mournin’, cause, man, you ain’t dead and gone.
Get down on your knees, pray and believe
Faith can lift that mountain off your shoulder.
It ain’t over till God says it’s over. ________________________________________
(bridge)
I watch a miracle grow up every day and that’s why I can stand here and say
________________________________________
(chorus 3)
Don’t you tell me that it’s final, or that it’s written in stone
Ain’t no need for mournin’ cause, man, you ain’t dead and gone.
Get down on your knees, pray and believe
Faith can lift that mountain off your shoulder.
It ain’t over till God says it’s over.

(tag)
Track Name: Have A Good Time
(vrs 1)
We like to get together and we like to have a good time.
We still like to drink, but we’re drinking from a new wine.
We like to dance and have a little fun,
When the spirit comes along, we have a good time. ________________________________________

(chorus)
We are saved and we know it, we’re not ashamed to show it.
We’re blood bought, sanctified, Holy Ghost filled inside
and we know how to have a good time.
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
We like to get loud have a Holy Ghost party.
Along about midnight we’re only getting started.
We loved to praise God and there ain’t no doubt,
Christians let me hear you shout (yeah, yeah)!! Let’s have a good time.
________________________________________
(repeat chorus)
________________________________________
(bridge)
We don’t do the things that we did before,
we don’t go to the same ole places no more.
We don’t walk, talk, like we did before we met Jesus Christ,
but we know how to have a good time.

Track Name: Tennessee Orange
(vrs 1)
All state quarterback with 47 wins
His senior year a dozen schools kept the letters rolling in
But he stayed in his home state to play for Tennessee
He was Knoxville bound to make football history
Then one morning, he changed his mind
He volunteered for the army and made his mama cry
And told his daddy, I need to be a man
Football can wait; I gotta go help Uncle Sam
________________________________________

(chorus)
He’s not the captain or the star of the team any more
Just another one of our boys fighting in a war
Sometimes there’s things more important than a dream
He traded Tennessee orange for faded army green
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
One night they were keeping watch and talking ‘bout back home
He said, Boys I miss East Tennessee but this thing won’t last long
When out of nowhere, the shells began to fly
And right there on that desert floor he stepped out of this life
Onto a field of perfect green, where soldiers live forever and freedom is free
But here today in his hometown,
They gave his mom a folded flag and laid him in the ground
________________________________________


(chorus)
He’s not the captain or the star of the team any more
But he’s a hero and a son that won’t e coming back from war
Sometimes there’s things more important than a dream
He traded Tennessee orange for faded army green
________________________________________
(bridge)
He did what he didn’t have to do
He sacrificed his life, bled and died for me and you
________________________________________
(tag)
Sometimes there’s things more important than a dream
He traded Tennessee orange for faded army green
Track Name: Bible Story
(vrs 1)
God always has a plan like many used of man to show the people what faith is for
David knew it from the start; God was dealing with his heart
and opportunity was knocking at his door.
Now he’s the reason why we say and use that old cliché,
the bigger they come the harder they fall,
cause with only five rocks and a little sling shot, Goliath wasn’t so big after all.
________________________________________

(chorus 1)
Stand Up, Stand Up, You don’t have to be afraid
He will give you courage, He will give you strength
Put your faith in God and I promise if you do,
He will make a Bible story out of you.
________________________________________

(vrs 2)
Daniel didn’t give up when they threw him in the den
The lions they had quite an appetite.
Yea, the king looked up and found God had sent an angel down
Turned those lions into cats that couldn’t bite.
And everybody knows how the story goes,
a man was called to set God’s people free
Underneath the desert sun, with no where left to run
That’s when Moses parted the sea.
________________________________________


(chorus 2)
Stand Up, Stand Up, You don’t have to be afraid
He will give you courage; He’s given you the strength
Put your faith in God and I promise if you do,
He will make a Bible story out of you.
________________________________________
(bridge)
You don’t have to be perfect; He can use you wherever you are
All it takes is a little faith and a willing heart.
________________________________________
(chorus 3)
Stand Up, Stand Up, You don’t have to be afraid
He’s given you courage; He’s given you the strength
Put your faith in God and I promise if you do,
He will make a Bible story out of you.
