Josh Williams - Mordecai lyrics

Wed see him in the distance on the trail along the rim
His silver head against the mountain sky
And Grandmas face would open up when she saw that it was him
And shed say Daddy grab a chair its Mordecai

And it seemed to me he brought a country store there on his back
As he layed it all before us on the ground
And I knew hed finally reach into that ragged old back pack
For the candy that he always brought around


He Said
My Papa was a wandering Jew and its my fate to be one too
Ill roam these mountain trails until I die
Perhaps one day Ill see my home and then he smiled and turned to go
And we all said goodbye to Mordecai

One evening when he stayed with us I saw him at his prayers
As the last light trickled through the cabin door
And he stood before the little yellow candle burning there
Softly speaking words Id never heard before
And I told him how my Grandma said it troubled her mind so
Such a fine man wasnt washed in the blood of the lamb
He smiled and said Tell Grandma if it pleases her to know
That She and I both pray to the God of Abraham


Its been so long now since Ive left that hillside far behind
For a place Ive never truly called my home
And more and more these days I see him walking in my mind
Through the misty mountain distance all alone

Mordecai was a wandering Jew, in my own way I am one too
I hope to make it home before I die
And if I should ever find my way Ill light a candle at his grave
And say one more goodbye to Mordecai
