"OUTLAW"

Verse 1
Here is the story of an outlaw,
Some say was Heaven sent,
Others say He was a traitor,
My friend swears He's innocent.

And the mark He left behind is still on my friend's mind,
Though they have never met.
'Cause the story is very old, & often it's been told
He can't forget about this man from Nazareth.

Verse 2
Well, some say He was a Savior,
That He saved and healed the sick.
And some said He had a demon,
That it was just a devil's trick.

So they nailed Him to a tree on a mount called Calvary
And left Him there to die.
After three days in the grave from the dead He was raised.
He conquered death, this man from Nazareth.

Bridge
Outlaw, who fought without a gun.
Outlaw, who only won with love.
Outlaw riding in the sun.
Outlaw, outlaw, where did you come from?

Verse 3
Well, I thought it was a fable,
But I finally changed my mind,
'Cause my friend's newfound faith
Is something I just can't deny.

There is a sparkle in his eye,
A peace deep down in side I just can not forget,
That the change that's in his life had happened overnight,
It's the effect of this strange man from Nazareth.

Ending: ---Outlaw in the sun
[Repeat until the end]
