By the side of the road

Now people who would rather live in splendor
Brag about their silver and their gold
People who would trade God's promise
For its treasure to hold
Now people who would rather live in mansions
People who would rather live abroad
But I'd rather have alittle log cabin
By the side of the road

    I'd rather live by the side of the road
    And try to point sould to the heavenly cross
    Than to be a king or millionaire
    And live in mansions and bright array
    I'd rather do my neighborly deed
    Or help some traveler or a friend in need
    I'd rather live by the side of the road
    And help some pilgrim along life's way

I'd rather have a cabin by the roadside
Where the pilgrim along life's way
Help to point souls to Jesus to that city on high
Every day I want to help scatter roses
Every night I want my light to shine abroad
With a welcome from my little bay wind
By the side of the road
