Way, Truth and Life

(parody of "Walk of Life" by Dire Straits)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: this is such a happy melody, it needs an upbeat subject, and there's no subject more upbeat than someone getting saved. In this case, Saul of Tarsus.


Here comes Saul on the Damascus road, gonna take the saints of God away.
Who shined the light on him, he don't know, the word "Lord" is what I heard him say.
For his infraction, he got the notion, he was blinded and was led away.
Through inaction, and devotion, prayed and didn't eat for the next three days.

A brother laid his hands on and prayed for him, he gave up all his plans for strife.
He met the Way, the Way Truth and Life, the Way Truth and Life.

Here comes Paul, he's got a brand new story, telling all about the Christ who came.
The Pharisees took an inventory, now their hero's preaching Jesus' name.
They got reaction, they got a notion, they can't refute him so they'll kill him dead.
For interaction, he'll cross the ocean, preachin' to the Gentiles where God led.

He travelled on with Barnabas and Silas, he always did remember Lot's wife.
He'd met the Way, the Way Truth and Life, the Way Truth and Life.

There goes Paul, he's in a Roman jail now, where his faith in God is on display.
But his faith, it will not fail now, he's gonna tell 'em all about the Way.
There's no distraction from his devotion. Writing letters, you can hear him say,
"Don't base your action on your emotion. Once you find the truth, don't you go astray."

He left us a legacy of faithfulness, of overcoming troubles and strife.
He knew the Way, the Way Truth and Life, the Way Truth and Life.
