Tramp On The Street

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Mother Maybelle:
Only a tramp was Lazarus sad fate
He who lay down at the rich man's gate
He begged for the crumbs from the rich man to eat
He was only a tramp found dead on the street.

Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters:
He was some mother's darling, some mother's son
Once he was fair and once he was young
Some mother rocked him, her darling to sleep
And they left him to die like a tramp on the street

Mother Maybelle:
Jesus, He died on Calvary's tree
Shed His life's blood for you and for me
They pierced His sides, His hands and His feet
Then they left Him to die like a tramp on the street.
Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters:
He was Mary's own darling, God's chosen Son
Once He was fair and once He was young
Mary, she rocked Him, her darling to sleep
But they left Him to die like a tramp on the street
