Tyrone's Song: (God's Man Tyrone)

Written by: Doug Todd

All praise to Heaven! Glory Hallelujah!
My Lord walks beside me
through this dark, dreary night.
All praise to The Father! And to His Son, Jesus!
Lord, help me keep walking
Down that road toward The Light!
Tyrone...!

I had a friend...a fine young man...
named Tyrone.
I had a friend...a fine young man...
good friend!
I had a friend...a fine young man...
carried God's Bible to the devils land!
Good Friend!
Close friend!
My friend!
God's man!
Tyrone...!
His dark eyes danced and his black skin shone...
Big man!
His dark eyes danced and his black skin shone...
Fine man!
His dark eyes danced and his black skin shone...
Faith and courage to the bone!
Big man!
Fine man!
My friend!
God's man!
Tyrone...!
We fought together, side by side...
Good friends!
We fought together, side by side...
Close friends!
We fought together, side by side...
he moved ahead like the rising tide!
Good friends!
Close friends!
God's man!
Tyrone...!
He had a song that he loved to sing...
One song!
He had a song that he loved to sing...
Same song!
He had a song that he loved to sing...
He'd make that Asian jungle ring!
One Song!
His Song!
Same song!
He sang...

All praise to Heaven! Glory Hallelujah!
My Lord walks beside me
Through this dark dreary night.
All praise to The Father! And to His Son, Jesus!
Lord, help me keep walking
Down that road toward the light!
TYRONE...!

There stood a hill they said we needed...
Big hill!
There stood a hill they said we needed...
Bad hill!
There stood a hill they said we needed...
Big mistake! But, no one heeded!
Big hill!
Bad hill!
Wrong hill!
Last hill!
Tyrone!
He said, "I'll take this hill but I won't take another...
No, Sarge!
I'll take this hill but I won't take another...
Old friend!
I'll take this hill, but I won't take another...
Send my Bible to my mother...
Please, Sarge!
Old friend!
God Bless!
Good Bye!
Tyrone!
He was just one man, but he fought like three...
Fought hard!
He was just one man, but he fought like three...
Stood tall!
He was just one man, but he fought like three...
'til he took a round that was meant for me!
Oh God!
Not him!
Not now!
Please God!!
Tyrone!
I won't forget how he fought and died...
Fought hard!
I won't forget how he fought and died...
Died hard!
I won't forget how he fought and died...
Or how I cursed and how I cried!
So hard!
Old friend!
Good friend!
God's man!
Tyrone...!
He sang of Heaven, but he died in Hell...
Died hard!
He sang of Heaven, but he died in Hell...
So hard!
He sang of Heaven, but he died in Hell...
And my heart died with him when he fell!
So hard!
So soon!
So soon!
God's man!
Tyrone...!
That was long ago and far away...
So far!
That was long ago and far away...
So long!
That was long ago and far away...
But, I hear him singing, just today!
One song!
His song!
Same song!
He sang...

All praise to Heaven! Glory Hallelujah!
My Lord walks beside me
Through this dark, dreary night.
All praise to The Father! And to His Son, Jesus!
Lord, help me keep walking
Down that road toward the light!

TYRONE...!
Now, I've got a friend...one real true friend...
Named Jesus!
Now, I've got a friend...one real true friend...
God's son!
Now I've got a friend...one real true friend...
He'll walk with me to the end!

Jesus!
God's Son!
My friend!
God's man!
Tyrone...!
Sometimes I'm afraid I'll lose my will...
I'm tired!
Sometimes I'm afraid I'll lose my will...
So tired!
Sometimes I'm afraid I'll lose my will...
But, with my friends, I'll take that hill!
Once more!
Old friends!
Good friends!
Jesus!!!
Tyrone...!
...all praise to heaven...glory hallelujah
