Lyrics -
"Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long way from home

Careful o' how you treat a stranger, by belying you'll turn him away
Well, be feared that you may obtain it, when you drive him from your gate

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long way from home

Well, be mindful if you're speaking, be careful how you go along
You must always treat a stranger right, don't insult him in your home

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long way from home

Well, all of us down here are strangers, none of us have no home
Don't never hurt, oh your brother, and cause him to pull his own

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long way from home

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long way from home

Well, Christ came down as a stranger, He didn't have no home
Well, he was cradled in the manger, and oxen kept him warm

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long way from home

Well the Wise Men found the stranger, well the child was one day old
They well careful in all of their treatments, well they offered him gifts of gold

Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, long ways from home
Everybody ought to treat a stranger right, a long way from home"

Lyrics -
"[Chorus]
Well, I want somebody tell me, answer if you can!
'Want somebody tell me, just what is the soul of a man?

I'm going to ask the question, answer if you can
If anybody surely can tell me, what is the soul of a man?

[Chorus]
Well, I want somebody tell me, answer if you can!
I Want somebody tell me, just what is the soul of a man?

I've traveled in different countries, I've traveled in foreign lands
I've found nobody could tell me, just what about the soul of a man

[Chorus]
Well, I want somebody tell me, answer if you can!
I Want somebody tell me, just what is the soul of a man?

I saw a crowd stand talking, I came up in time
Were teaching the lawyers, the doctors, that a man ain't nothing but his mind

[Chorus] x2
Well, I want somebody tell me, answer if you can!
I Want somebody tell me, just what is the soul of a man?

I reads the bible often, I tries to read it right
As far as I could understand, a man is more than his mind

[Chorus]
God, I want somebody tell me, answer if you can!
I Want somebody tell me, just what is the soul of a man?

When Christ stood in the temple, the people all stood amazed
Was teaching the lawyers and the doctors, how to raise a body from the grave

[Chorus] x2
Well, I want somebody tell me, answer if you can!
'Want somebody tell me, just what is the soul of a man?"
