Foy Vance - Gabriel And The Vagabond Lyrics

rate me

There's a man in the corner and his clothes are worn

And he's holding out his hand

You could see in his eyes as the people walk by

He knows they don't understand

Ya see they just think he's gonna take their money

And go and spend it all on dope

Then a man stopped by and I saw a smile inside him

As he gently whispered hope

Well the tramp started to cry, just kept saying,

"Why? why? why?

Could you see I'm a dying tonight

Well I'm 32 and I've got this one pair of shoes

And a bad taste in my mouth

I think it's clear to see that even God don't love me

Or else why would He leave me this way."

Then Gabriel just smiled and said be peaced my child

Salvation is here today

He got up to his feet and he sang Hallelujah

People were turning around in the street

He looked them in the eyes and he sang,


There's someone here that you gotta meet

Someone you just gotta meet."

When the vagabond turned around well without a sign

Gabriel just smiled and disappeared

Then he looked to the crowd and they were laughing out loud

But he could not see them fore tears

When his vision came round

There was a young girl on the ground

I knew she was fine and hard to cope

She never was a fighter until he laid beside her

And gently whispered hope

They got up to their feet and they sang Hallelujah

People in the street were turning around

They looked them in the eyes and they sang,


There's someone here we have found"

They sang,

"Hallelujah, Hallelujah

We are the voices crying in the wilderness

Hallelujah, Hallelujah."

The people in the street started their sins to confess

And a chorus of,

"Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Every knee will bow and every tongue confess

and the voice of one crying in the wilderness


Hallelujah, Hallelujah"
