lyrics

THE HEART OF A HOBO
(Kurt Fortmeyer/Billy Phillips)
He gave up the way of the whiskey
He’d had no more wanting for the wine
He never rode the rails but he’d heard all those tall tales
And he’s walked down lonesome highways in his mind singing

Silver and gold have I none
And yes Jesus loves me this I know
He’d let the darkness go He was following the Son
God gave him the heart of a hobo

He offered solace to those who’d suffered sorrow
He’d lend a hand to those whose lives had jumped the track
Like the shirt that he was wearing his bread was made for sharing
He said that was just his way of giving back and he’d sing

Silver and gold have I none
And yes Jesus loves me this I know
He’d let the darkness go He was following the Son
God gave him the heart of a hobo

He’d talk about his failure and his falling
A homeless man and an organ donor card
How someone he never knew helped him make it through
And how he’d come to have that change of heart and he’d sing

Silver and gold have I none
And yes Jesus loves me this I know
He’d let the darkness go He was following the Son
God gave him the heart of a hobo
He’d let the darkness go He was following the Son
Because God gave him the heart of a hobo
God gave him the heart of a hobo
