Lyrics

 

Standin’ on a corner, each day at five

Bible in his hand, hell fire in his eyes

Buddhists and Baptists each of them know

The path to glory is a narrow road

 

     Shouting the gospel

     Spreading the news

     Say he’s crazy but he’s saved a few

     You can find him down in Birmingham

     The soul survivor, Street Corner Sam

 

Pointing his finger at each car passing by

He can’t reach ‘em all, but he’s sure gonna try

Some will judge him by his ragged old coat

But he’s made up of heaven’s gold

 

     Shouting the gospel

     Spreading the news

     Say he’s crazy but he’s saved a few

     You can find him down in Birmingham

     The soul survivor, Street Corner Sam

 

          His friends and family have been gone so long

          He’s testifying that you’re never alone

          Some throw money cause they know he’s right

          He gives it all to the soup kitchen line

 

     Shouting the gospel

     Spreading the news

     Say he’s crazy but he’s saved a few

     You can find him down in Birmingham

     The soul survivor, Street Corner Sam
