JOSH TURNER lyrics : "The Way He Was Raised"

He always wore those worn out flip-flops
Spent hours in his Daddy's workshop
he loved being on the water

Fishing with His friends
He always listened to the old folks
When they'd tell stories and crack jokes

Didn't talk back to his Mama
When she got onto Him


Oh, that's just the way He was raised
Had to finish all His chores 'fore He could go outside and play
they always went to church that's were he learned how to pray

And that's just the way He was raised

He grew His hair out when He got older

Grew it clear down to His shoulders
Started hanging with the outcasts
When He went off to town

Some called Him a troublemaker
Even some said a lawbreaker
No matter how they talked about Him

He never put nobody down

'Cause that's just the way He was raised

When people start to gossip, He'd just walk away
He always loved his neighbor no matter what they'd say
Oh, that's just the way He was raised


On a cross, on a hill
That longhaired boy was killed

All our sins washed away
When He walked out of that grave


Oh, that's just the way He was raised
there's no way we can measure
The sacrifice He made

He knew He had to die
For our debt to be paid
Oh, that's just the way He was raised


It took the hand of God to roll the stone away
And that's just the way He was raised

Yeah, that's just the way He was raised
