WALKING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS One foot is down but the other one hesitates One foot down with nowhere to go One foot is down and you're over analyzing One foot down so ready, set, go! And you move You move All around! One foot is down and you've really been praying One foot down and you're waitin' on the Lord One foot is down and you're wonderin' is it workin' One foot down when it really cuts loose! And you’re movin' You’re movin' All around! CHORUS Well you're walkin in the footsteps of Jesus Walkin in the footsteps Here we go! Walkin in the footsteps of Jesus Walkin in the footsteps Here we go! We move We move All around! One foot is down now you really got it movin' One foot down, He (Spirit) is leading you on One foot is down and you're wonderin' where you’re goin’ One foot down better hold on tight! And you’re movin' You’re movin' All around! CHORUS One foot is down and the other one follows One foot is down and the other follows through

Love To Burn 09:08
LOVE TO BURN What of those who say There’s no need for Him today He belongs in a sanctioned space Can’t inhabit every place If we shut the door, shut the book Never to ask, never to look Till the TIME is right What if they’re right? Wouldn’t it be Cool? I've come to learn He's Love to Burn! Love! Love to burn Love! And what of those who say In this awesome age When we’ve come so far He can be everything to everyone It depends He’s like the wind He comes and goes And it’s up to us To decide His ways Figure Him out Pass Him on Just as if He’s a children’s Nursery Rhyme I’ve been moved I’ve seen the Light I’ve been called Eye-eye-eye Love to Burn! Love! Love to burn Love! What of those who say I only trust in my own way I can’t be wrong I’m enough I don’t need anyone I’ll save myself I believe only in what I see And what I touch It’s got to be real And what I feel is enough for me I’m sure it’s gonna be good enough For me What of those who say He’s a naked bulb in an alley way A tiny light for failing eyes Just a man in a thin disguise An ancient truth to the very wise It’s far more hip to theorize There are so many paths To enlightenment, enlightenment We are god, oh boy! We are gods I’ve been moved I’ve seen the Light I’ve been called Eye-eye-eye Love to Burn! Love! Love to burn Love!

I’m in love with Emmylou Harris She’s the beauty queen that always haunts my mind Once upon a time I thought I might have her But now I know she’s just a state of mind So sing me a song by Emmylou Harris And I’ll pretend that I’m in love with you Maybe if you smile that big crazy smile Then I will find a way to believe in you ----------------- I used to work the badlands out in NoDak And I’d search for Emmylou on the dial And in my loneliness, she was right beside me And that dusty road was just like Highway One And I’d sing along with Emmylou Harris And I’d pretend my life was goin’ fine And then I’d watch the sun, setting on the hilltop And make believe my water had turned to wine ----------------- Yes I’m in love with Emmylou Harris But she don’t even know that I’m alive Once upon a time I thought I might hold her But now I know she’s just a state of mind So sing me a song like Emmylou Harris Maybe something sad like Hickory Wind And baby when you smile that big crazy smile I will find a way to believe in you Baby won’t you smile that big crazy smile And I will find a way to believe in you ---------------- So sing me a song by Emmylou Harris And I’ll pretend that I’m a fallen angel And baby when you smile that big crazy smile I will find a way to believe in you Honey won’t you smile…that big crazy smile and… I will find a way to believe in you

I will kneel down and pray For Deliverance I’m trusting in God (and) (I’m) Washed in the Blood Would that then I’d overcome Will I see His Glory? It’s time to seek His Face His Loving Grace I’m trusting in God (and) (I’m) Washed in the Blood Would there be Revival Will there be Healing in our Land? INTERLUDE When we face Great Trials We will reign triumphant! Let’s all bow down and pray For Holiness And trusting in God We’re washed in the Blood There will burn a Holy Fire There will be a Harvest in this Land! Let’s all kneel down and pray for Deliverance Trusting in God Let’s all kneel down and pray for Healing Grace Trusting in God Let’s all kneel down and pray for Holiness Trusting in God God is Love! God is Love!

A Baker’s son, born in Montana He grew up young A free-fall life Riding in…and out of heartache The changing times Left him behind He fled the mountains Soon left the country To work…on his pain He had a Vision He had a plan But God knows, it just flew away A banker’s girl, born into money She married young To an empty life (So) lonely now, longing for lost love His faraway Eyes And Ocean smile He’s got no money He’s got no home He’s just a…Driftin’…On n’ on Once he had Visions He laid some plans But God knows, they just didn’t pan out The Last Cowboy, it didn’t come easy There was a cost The long ride out Cards were laid (lain) on the table Win or lose He played with the devil He’s got no money He’s got no home He just a…Rambles…On alone Once he had Visions He laid some plans But God knows, how they turned on him

Wild Ride 03:28
I’d wake up in the mornin’ And find my baseball glove Take my bat and ball down to the park In the afternoon I’d go fishin’ On the far side of the lake Probably stay until it was almost dark Then I’d start a fire and cook out in the open Watch the sun as it slid down over the hills And I didn’t have a care, as I traveled on with my life Lord life never was as good as ‘65 I thought it couldn’t get any better than ‘65 In ’71 I was out for fun Drove my pickup truck out west Played my songs for a beer and a cigarette Well the years passed by so quickly I grew out of control Well the wander lust [wanderin’ life] proved too hard on my soul And the thing about those times I was so lonely And I realize I fell into bad company And I thank the Lord I found a way to get down on my knees (and pray-ay-aay!) And find a path to forgiveness in you And find a path to forgiveness, Father, in you FIDDLE BREAK And in ’84 I wound up at the alter And in ’85 I held my baby son (in my arms) And I thank the Lord each day for the family He’s brought my way They’ve given me the best years of my life Oh-oh, these truly are the best years of my life And I thank the Lord every mornin’ when I wake up It’s a miracle I am even alive And I never have a care, I just travel on with my life Cos I know every day God will provide Father, thank you once again, “It’s been a wild ride!” Whoo!

Well I’m paid off on my car and I’ve got a big house I’m married with kids but they think I am a louse I’ve got a crappy job, got a nice dog I’m sitting here thinking what’s the sense of this all? I should’ve been a Lutheran Pastor Really should’ve been a Lutheran Pastor And I could work on Sunday, sleep all day Monday Fishin’ on Tuesday, dancin’ on Wednesday Friday rolls around it’s time to work on my sermon! Saturday night I think I see a bright light!! I gotta be a Lutheran Pastor Really wanna be a Lutheran Pastor It’s the Reverend It’s the Reverend Reverend Bobby Now I’ve got a slip of paper and it says, “Reverend… Congratulations, You’re one of the brethren Go and tend your flock they are the poor and the needy We wish you God speed but check back with us yearly” I really am a Lutheran Pastor Even really got a congregation But I can’t find my church there is no address listed No PO Box…I’ll just drive around Fishin’ for souls, Hey after all it’s Tuesday Just around the block another promisin’ spot! I gotta find my congregation Really, really need a congregation It’s the Reverend It’s the Reverend Reverend Bobby Now I’m all settled in quite snuggled and cozy Mendota Health that is a very nice name It really is true I am Reverend Bobby Got a Sunday service, it’s down in the Lobby! I really am a Lutheran Pastor Really, really am a Lutheran Pastor I am Reverend Reverend Bobby Quite Reverend Bobby Most Reverend Bobby
