Automobile Of Life Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Some people are just like an automobile
Theyll run fine when every thing is right
When the roads are all clear and the weather is fine
And theres plenty of sunshine and light

But often they come to a wash out
And then get stuck and have to deture
Maybe a break in the casting will prove
They never were built to endure

Get plenty of water and plenty of oil
And the best gasoline you can find
Have the engine tuned up and look out for your breaks
Youll have some hard places to climb

Look out for the tires for the blowouts will come
On a dangerous curve deep and neigh
But if youll let Jesus take hold of the wheel
Youll make it to heaven on high

Some autos are painted and polished so bright
They sell for more than they are worth
And some people think their profession
Will do stop short of the bibles new birth

Just start up your engine and then
You can tell if the thing is hitting on six
For if you depend on the looks of the car
Youll be in a terrible fix

Now all our professions of powder and paint
Though lovely upon the outside
Wont answer to God for He looks on the heart
It matters not how hard weve tried

So if you are stuck in the quicksand of sin
And wondering and flowendering about
Just let Gods great engine of glory and grace
With a cable of love pull you out

Get plenty of water and plenty of oil
And the best gasoline you can find
Have the engine tuned up and look out for your breaks
Youll have some hard places to climb

Look out for the tires for the blowouts will come
On a dangerous curve deep and neigh
But if youll let Jesus take hold of the wheel
Youll make it to heaven on high
