Only a tramp was Lazarus sad fate
He who lay down at the rich man's gate
He begged for the crumbs from the rich man to eat
He was only a tramp found dead on the street

He was some mother's darlin' he was some mother's son
Once he was fair and once he was young
Some mother rocked him her darlin' to sleep
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street

Jesus who died on Calvary's tree
Shed His life's blood for you and for me
They pierced His sides His hands and His feet
And they left Him to die like a tramp on the street

He was Mary's own darlin' he was God's chosen Son
Once He was fair and once He was young
Mary she rocked Him her darlin' to sleep
But they left Him to die like a tramp on the street

If Jesus should come and knock on your door
For a place to come in or bread from your store
Would you welcome Him in or turn Him away
Then the God's would deny you on the Great Judgment Day

La versione di Peter, Paul & Mary dall’album “Late Again” del 1968.

Late Again
THE TRAMP ON THE STREET

Jesus, he died on Calvary's tree
Nails in his hands and nails in his feet.
Mary, she rocked him, her little baby to sleep.
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street.

Only a poor man was Laz'rus that day
When he lay down at the rich man's gate.
He begged for the crumbs of the rich man to eat;
He was only a tramp found dead on the street.

He was some mother's darlin', he was some mother's son;
Once he was fair, and once he was young.
Some mother rocked him, her little baby, to sleep;
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street.

Jesus who died on Calvary's tree.
Shed his life's blood for you and for me.
They pierced his side, his hands and his feet.
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street.

Jesus, he died on Calvary's tree
Nails in his hands and nails in his feet.
Mary, she rocked him, her little baby to sleep.
But they left him to die like a tramp on the street.
