or
John Denver

The prodigal son, he'd been away awhile
He was workin' his way back home now
Over many a ragged mile
When he finally crossed the river
And his father saw him near
There was a joyful sound for all the world to hear

I listened to what the Good Book said
And it made good sense to me
Talkin' 'bout reapin' what you're sowin'
People tryin' to be free
Now we got new names and faces
This time around
Gospel changes, Lord
Still goin' down

Jesus, He did not doubt His gift
Though He knew that He had not long to live
He took care of the business
Teaching us how to fly
Then He bowed His head
And laid down to die

I listened to what the Good Book said
And it made good sense to me
Talkin' 'bout reapin' what you're sowin'
And people tryin' to be free
Now we got new names and faces
This time around
Gospel changes, Lord
Still goin' down

Jerusalem, I see is standin' high
But if you lose your salvation
There'll be no tears left to cry
Now some men worship a golden calf
While others are bought and sold
And if we live like that, brother, we pay the toll

I listened to what the Good Book said
And it made good sense to me
Talkin' 'bout reapin' what you're sowin'
And people tryin' to be free
Now we got new names and faces
This time around
Gospel changes, Lord
Still goin' down

Gospel changes, Lord
Still goin' down
Still goin' down
Still goin' down
Gospel changes, Lord
Still goin' down
