Circuit Rider

Circuit Rider
 Circuit Rider





Nalls/Stookey/Bouchard/Thibodeau/Sutherland
1983  Neworld Media Music Publishing & Grasshopper Music

Winds off the desert
Just before the dawn
Storm clouds gather
There's a rider coming on

The weekend dance; a mother's sigh
The eldest son; That moonlight ride
A lilac hedge; the front porch swing
A lover's hand; the golden ring
A tiny farm on the edge of doubt
Tender shoots before the drought
A scorching sun: the mortgaged land
The twisted corn; the shifting sand

Circuit Rider; bring the news of Love
Lonely driver; counting on help from above

A honky-tonk; a game of chance
The deal of cards: a nodding glance
A scrape of chair; a shaking hand
A  swinging door; a broken man

Circuit Rider; bring the news of Love
Lonely driver; counting on help from above

There's a revival at the river, circuit rider's in town
Jesse Evan's just been saved and his feet don't touch the ground
Down by the river an angel in the choir
Is singing "Rock of Ages" and the Word of God's on fire
Preaching final judgment and forgiveness of our sins
Casting out the devil and asking Jesus in

A change of heart; the healing tears
A brand new start; the passing years
A thankful  family by the grave
Once were lost, now are saved

Circuit Rider; bring the news of Love
Lonely driver; counting on help from above
Circuit Rider; bring the news of Love
Lonely driver; counting on help from above
