  • 04:36 Story Lyrics This Ain't Heaven Yet

    I got stones all in my passway just like the old blues man said it

    and I've watered my couch with my tears just like in Psalms 6 where I read it

    and I've had so much regret, ah but this ain't heaven yet

     

    Well the bus just pulled in to the station mother and child just climbed on board

    They've just got one suitcase between them and a prayer up to the Lord

    and they've got so much to forget, ah but this ain't heaven yet

     

    Well there gatherin' in the graveyard there gonna lay her body down

    and as the family's weepin' as the tears fall to the ground

    I'm thinkin' as they wept, ah but this ain't heaven yet

     

    Well in heaven there'll be no more sorrow

    and in heaven there'll be no more death

    and he'll wipe away all the tears

    all the tears that we've wept, ah but this ain't heaven yet

  • 03:00 Story Lyrics Singin' With the Angels

    Today I'm gonna live for Jesus

    Yesterday has come and gone

    Tomorrow I could be in Heaven

    Singin' a brand new song

    I could be singin' with the angels

    I could singin' Praise The Lord

Lyrics

I've been broke and I've been hungry

I've been walkin' all alone

I have been just like a man who's

Lookin' for his home

I have been a blind man

I could not walk like I was lame

I have been just like a deaf man

I could not hear him call my name

But you know that's just how it is

When your blind you cannot see

But Jesus is a wonderful healer

And he's been healin' me

I said Jesus is a Wonderful healer

Jesus is a wonderful healer

Jesus is a wonderful healer

and he's been healin' me

So if your broken hearted

And your troubled in your soul

Jesus is a waonderful healer

And he can make you whole

Cause Jesus is a wonderful healer

Jesus is a wonderful healer

Jesus is a wonderful healer

Annd he can make you whole!!!

Lyrics

I remember back in Illinois when I was a little boy

Playin' records on the stereo pretendin' I could play guitar.

I remember back in senentytwo I was ten sittin' in school

I was wishin' kids wouldn't be so cruel, man we haven't come to far

My minds full of dreams

I remember in my high school days how I never would go on dates

How I prayed that I could wait on a girl who's just like you.

I remember sittin' in church holdin' back the tears cause my heart hurts

And I was thinkin' Lord, man nothing' works but still I know your word is true.

My minds full of dreams.

Now I have been a lonely boy and I have been a sinful man

But you've been with me all the time and now I can't beleive I can,

Play guitar and not be cruel n' be with a girl who's just like you.

I can go to church and bow my head and believe the words that you have said!

Story

  About 10 years ago I was in the studio with A Little Steel, The Blues Band I had formed in the mid 90's. We we're recording and arguing like a bunch of guys will do when everyone wants to do something different. I had been in the studio all day with them but we still needed another song. I said lets just play something that swings a little like TBone Walker in the key of C and then I was trying to think of some lyrics. I began thinking how normally on a Saturday I would be with my wife hiking in the mountains or walking on the beach and though we can argue a bit too she's sure a lot prettier than the guys in the band and the next thing you know I missed her so!!!

Lyrics

Well I love my baby and Lord I hope she knows

Everytime I'm gone well I miss her so

Well you know I love you and baby i miss you so

I leave early in the morning

I'm gone all day long

Working so hard man

It seems so wrong

When I miss you so, well I miss you so

Well you know I love you, baby I miss you so

She just five foot one

She's got a heart a gold

and evertime I'm gone well I miss her so

Well I miss you so, well I miss you so

Well you know I love you and baby I miss you so

Well we know it in our heads

We know it in our heart

What God has brought together

Let no man try to part

I miss you, well I miss you so

Well you know I love you and baby I miss you so

Lyrics

(twice) Pledge allegianc to the flag of the country we live in

One nation under God than tell me why we live in sin

(twice) You know our money says in God we trust

Sundays the day we wash our cars while our bibles collect dust

(twice) Millions of babies dead for a night of pleasure and fun

One nation under God do you really think that's what he would have done

God Bless America

My home, my home sweet home

My home, my sweet home

Story

A favorite Blues artist of mine, Johnny Shines, has a line in a song that says "My life on earth ain't been nothin' but a solid mess! I can't wait to get to heaven so I can lay down by the fire and rest" The first time I heard him sing that I thought man I know how he feels!!

I had already written Blues In My Soul but that line summed up exactly how I was feeling at the time. It seemed like the perfect place to insert that great line! There has been times when it seems like I just can't make it another day! On the bright side that's my favorite time to grab my guitar and pray! I often talk to God with my guitar in my hand. I'm not trying to write a song I'm just pluckin' the strings and usually complaining, but by the end I can see how the Lord spoke to me! Giving me a more eternal perspective. Our troubles here will soon be over no matter how great or small! Then for those of us that have chose to make Jesus Lord of our life it's eternity with our Savior! No more tears and no more sorrow!!

Then after that there's a song. Hopefully a song that will encourage others their not alone, and that Jesus is the way the truth and the life! He loves us, died for us and is preparing a place for us!! If you haven't yet eccepted Jesus as your Lord & Savior we pray you will!!!

Lyrics

I got the Blues in my fingers

Got the Blues in my soul

the blues in my spirit man like nobody knows

I got the Blues

Lord Knows I've got the Blues

I got the Blues in my fingers

Lord you know I got the Blues in my soul

Well I laid down last night

I closed my eyes to pray

Said Lord have mercy take my Blues away

I've got the Blues

Lord knows I've got the Blues

I got the Blues in my fingers

Lord you know I got the Blues in my soul

Well I got the Blues in my fingers

The blues in my soul

The Blues in my spirit man like nobody knows

I got the Blues

Lord knows I got the blues

I got the blues in my fingers

Lord you know I got the Blues in my soul

You know my life on this earth

Ain't been nothin' but a solid mess

You know My life on this earth

Ain't been nothin' but a solid mess

I can't wait to get to heaven

Gonna lay down by the fire and rest

I heard everyday is Sunday on the other side

I heard everyday is Sunday on the other side

I can't wait to get to heaven

Gonna lay down by the fire and rest

Story

In Mathew 5:45 Jesus tells us that Our Father Lets the sun shine on the just and the unjust just the same. Likewise the rain falls on the just and the unjust.

We serve a gracious God who sends the sunshine and rain to all of us wicked or righteous.

In the same way we all suffer, endure trials and hardship. John 16:33

Hard Rain Fall acknowledges and Thanks Jesus for being the Only Hope, Shelter, True Never Failing Friend and Savior from the pouring rain of trials and tribulation in this world! For me, my wife and all believers in Christ Jesus!! Thanks to Jesus death on the cross for our sins and that he has risen from the grave and now lives all who accept, believe and follow Him as Lord will be Saved!! If you haven't yet please read, The Roman Road

 

Lyrics

Oh hard rain, hard rain fall

Hard rain fall down on us all

Rain falls on the wicked

And the righteous just the same

No matter who you are

You know it's still gonna rain

Oh hard rain, hard rain fall

Hard rain fall down on us all

The rain falls on the righteous

the wicked just the same

No matter who you are

You know it's still gonna rain

Oh hard rain, hard rain fall

Hard rain fall down on us all

Well Jesus you're my savior

You're my closest friend

You're my only shelter 

From the pouring rain

Oh hard rain, hard rain fall

Hard rain fall down on us all
