It was a wide spot out in the country
Away from the lights of the city
Where an old time preacher pitched a ragged old tent
Looked like it was a hundred years old

He started out preaching to no one
But pretty soon a crowd started gathering
And he preached the gospel
At the corner of Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road

I turned into a wild man
Some people said I'd gone crazy
But all too soon came the harvest
Of the wild seeds that I had sown

Well, I stumbled into that meeting
I was looking like death warmed over
But then I heard the gospel
At the corner of Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope road

When they sing come ye sinners, lost and hopeless
Lord I was hopeless heaven knows
Something got a hold of me, something got a hold hallelujah
When I heard the gospel
At the corner of Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road

It's still a wide spot out in the country
Away from the lights of the city
I pitched that old tent he gave me
The day that he died and went home

Some times I start preaching to no one
But pretty soon a crowd starts gathering
And I now preach the gospel
At the corner of Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road

And we sing come ye sinners, lost and hopeless
Lord I was hopeless heaven knows
Something got a hold of me, something got a hold hallelujah
When I heard the gospel
At the corner of Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road

Glory hallelujah, I'm saying glory, glory hallelujah
Hey, hey, glory, glory hallelujah, glory, glory, glory

And they sing come ye sinners, lost and hopeless
Lord, I was hopeless heaven knows
Something got a hold of me, something got a hold hallelujah
When I heard the gospel
At the corner of Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road
When I heard the gospel
At the corner of Heartbreak Ridge and New Hope Road

Glory, glory hallelujah, glory, glory hallelujah
