"The Outlaw" as written by and Larry Norman....
Some say he was an outlaw
That he roamed across the land
With a band of unschooled ruffians
And a few old fishermen

No one knew just where he came from
Or exactly what he'd done
But they said it must be something bad
That kept him on the run

Some say he was a poet
That he'd stand upon the hill
That his voice could calm an angry crowd
And make the waves stand still

He spoke in many parables
That few could understand
But the people sat for hours
Just to listen to this man

Some say he was a sorcerer
A man of mystery
He could walk upon the water
He could make a blind man see

That he conjured wine at weddings
And did tricks with fish and bread
That he talked of being born again
And raised people from the dead

Some say a politician
Who spoke of being free
He was followed by the masses
On the shores of Galilee

He spoke out against corruption
And he bowed to no decree
And they feared his strength and power
So they nailed him to a tree

Some say he was the Son of God
A man above all men
That he came to be a servant
And to set us free from sin

And that's who I believe he is
'Cause that's what I believe
And I think we should get ready
'Cause it's time for us to leave
