Masters Call2-crd

Marty Robbins

 CAm
 When I was but a young man, wild and full of fire
 CAm
 A youth within my teens but full of challenge and desire
 CAm
 I ran away from home, and left my mother and my dad 
 FGAm
                                      How it grieved them so to think, that there only boy was bad
 CAm
 I fell in with an outlaw bunch, there names were known quite well
 CAm
 How many times we robbed and plundered I could never tell 
 CAm
 This kind of sinful living will lead only to a fall 
 FGAm
                                      I learned that much and more, the night I heard my master call
 CAm
 One night we rustled cattle, a thousand head or so
 CAm
 And started them out on the trail that leads to mexico 
 GC
 When a norther started blowin, and lightning flashed about
 AmFAm
                                      I thought someone was callin me, I thought I heard a shout
 CAm
 And at that moment lightning struck not twenty yards from me 
 CAm
 And left there was a giant cross where once there'd been a tree
 GC
 This time I know I heard a voice, a voice so sweet and plain
 AmFAm
                                     A voice that came from everywhere, a voice that called my name
 CAm
 So frightened I was thinking of the sinful deeds I'd done
 CAm
 I failed to see the thousand head of cattle start to run 
 CAm
 The cattle they stampeded and were runnin all around 
 FGAm
                                      My pony ran but stumbled,  and he threw me to the ground
 CAm
 I felt the end was nearin,  that death would be the price
 CAm
 When a mighty bolt of lightning showed the face of Jesus Christ 
 GC
 And I cried oh lord forgive me, don't let it happen now
 AmFAm
 I want to live for you alone, god these words I vow 
 CAm
 My wicked life unfolded, and I thought of wasted years
 CAm
 When another bolt of lightning killed a hundred head of steers
 GC
 And the others rushed on by me, but I was left to live
 AmFAm
 The master had a reason life was his to take or give 
 CAm
 A miracle performed that night, I wasn't meant to die
 CAm
 The dead ones formed a barricade, least six or seven high
 CAm
 And right behind it there was I, afraid but safe and sound
 FGAm
                                      I cried and begged for mercy  then and there upon the ground
 CAm
 A pardon I was granted, my sinful soul set free
 CAm
 No more to fear the angry waves upon lifes stormy seas
 CAm
 Forgiven by a love of god, a love that will remain
 FGAm
                                      I gave my life and soul the night the savior called my name
 FGAmC
                                      I gave my life and soul the night the savior called...... my.....
name........
