The Outlaw
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Some say He was an outlaw That He roamed across the land With a band of unschooled ruffians And few young fishermen No one knew just where He came from Or exactly what He'd done But they said it might be something bad That keeps Him on the run. And some say He was a poet 'Cause He'd stand upon the hill And His words could calm an angry crowd Or make the waves stand still And He spoke in many parables That few could understand But the people sat for hours Just to listen to that Man. Some say He was a sorcerer A Man of mystery He could walk upon the water He could make a blind man see And He conjured wine at weddings And did tricks with fish and bread He spoke of being born again And He raised people from the dead. Some thought He might have been a up and coming politician 'Cause He always talked of being free And He was followed by the people On the shores of Galilee He spoke out against corruption And He bowed to no decree And they feared His strength and power So they nailed Him to a tree. Some say He was the Son of God A Man above all men But He came to be a servant And to set us free from sin And that's who I believe He was 'Cause that's who I believe And I think we should get ready 'Cause it's almost time to leave. And I think we should get ready 'Cause it's time for us to leave.
