Ransom Man

(parody of "Ramblin' Man" by Allman Brothers)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: this was one of the easier parodies I've written; the rhymes came easily without having to compromise the message, which is eternal and universal.


chorus:
The Lord, He was born a Ransom Man,
Dyin' and forgivin' and doin' the master plan.
There's no time for grievin', because He rose again,
For He was born a Ransom Man.

The Father sent His Son to be Messiah.
He wound up on a cross 'til it was done.
But I was born on the wrong side of the human race,
Running a life that can't be won.

chorus:
Lord, I was born a bad sin man,
Tryin' to get to Heaven by doin' the best I can.
But no more disbelievin', 'cause now I understand,
And I'm reborn, a ransomed man.

I'm on my way to new life by rebornin',
Believing all of John three, verse sixteen.
There's more ways of havin' a good time that don't pull away from the Lord;
No more way to link the world and me.

chorus:
Oh, don't you scorn the Ransom Man.
Tryin' to get to Heaven is losin' — I know you can't.
Before it's time for leavin', I hope you take His hand,
And be reborn, a ransomed man.

The Lord, He was born a Ransom Man.
Lord, I was born a bad sin man.
Oh, I'm reborn, a ransomed man.
Oh, don't you scorn the Ransom Man.
