A song of praise sharing the joy of following the road to Heaven with other good people. Written in my head during 1 long shower, lyrics and all. Not kidding.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I am very impressed with every aspect of this song, the writing, the selection of musicians, the performance, the recording.

    - Chris Keaton - Broadjam Pro Reviewer

All instrument parts are performed perfectly. The mix is great. The subject is awesome of course, because God is Awesome! This is a fun song to listen to. Though this would probably not be allowed by the music industry to cross into secular realm, it should be a hit on the gospel charts for sure.

Lyrics

Walkin'. Walkin'. Walkin' down the road I meet 50 million people -
they're walkin'. They're walkin'. Walkin' to the beat of The Lord.
Moses (Moses), Moses led the people out of Egypt into freedom -
they're walkin'. They're walkin'. Walkin' to the beat of The Lord.

Now everybody's got their problems, and everybody's got their pain.
I thank The Lord for the sunshine today and the farmer thanks him for the rain.
Some people fall into money. Other people fall in love.
But I fall in to that big-old line that's headin' up to Heaven above.

That's why I'm walkin'. Walkin'. Walkin' down the road I meet 50 million people -
they're walkin'. They're walkin'. Walkin' to the beat of The Lord.

Now Cain wasn't able to save his soul, but Jesus' grave had a rock that rolled.
He rose to Heaven to cleanse us all and He welcomes you back Home!
There's hope for the non-believer, and people who can't decide.
But God said: "Live your life by the Golden Rule" or there ain't no place to hide!

That's why we're walkin'. Walkin'.
Walkin' down the road I meet 50 million people.
They're walkin'. They're walkin'. Walkin' to the beat of The Lord.

Now you can call on the congregation!
You can call on the telephone!
You can call on the name of the sweet Lord Jesus
and you're never gonna be alone!
That's why we're walkin'. Walkin'.
Walkin' down the road we meet 50 million people -
they're walkin'. They're walkin'.
Walkin' to the beat of The Lord.
Walkin' to the beat of The Lord! (YEAH!)

Everybody walkin'.
One foot down in front of the other, walkin'!
Everybody walkin', yeah.
Keep on walkin'.
Everybody, everybody gone walkin'.
Keep on walkin' now!
