Singer of Songs - Johnny Cash

I?m not a savior, and I?m not a saint.
The man with the answers I certainly ain?t.
I wouldn?t tell you what?s right or what?s wrong.
I?m just a singer of songs.

But I can take you for a walk along a little country stream.
I can make you see through lovers? eyes and understand their dreams.
I can help you hear a baby?s laugh and feel the joy it brings.
Yes, I can do it with the songs I sing.
I?m not a prophet, and I?m not a priest.
I?m not a wise man who?s come from the East.
I wouldn?t tell you what?s right or what?s wrong.
I?m just a singer of songs.

But I can take you to a city where a man was crucified.
I can tell you how He lived, and I can tell you why He died.
I can help proclaim the glory of this mighty king of kings.
Yes, I can do it with the songs I sing.
I?m not a great man. I don?t claim to be.
But when I meet my Maker and He questions me,
I won?t hang my head. I?ll stand proud and strong
and say, ?I was a singer. Lord, I was a singer.
Yes, I was a singer of songs.?
