with my maker i am one lyrics – eric bibb

i am the preacher – shoutin’ out the news
i am the juke stomper – playin’ the blues
i am the holy roller – givin’ jesus my cares
i am the candy man – pushin’ my wares
i am the cowboy – brandin’ my steers
i am the cherokee brave – on the trail of tears
i am the master – whip in my hand
i am the slave – from a distant land
after all is said an’ done – with my maker i am one
i am the okie – on a dusty road
i am the banker – with the tailor-made clothes
i am the hobo – in a cold boxcar
i am the railroad baron – with the long cigar
i am the ghetto brother – ‘bout to lose his lease
i am the landlord – cuttin’ of the heat
i am the prisoner – playin’ cards
i am the warden – lokkin’ out on the yard
after all is said an’ done – with my maker i am one
i am the doctor – savin’ the sick
i am the junkie – gravin’ a fix
i am the homeless child – on streets so mean
i am the movie star – on the silver screen
i am the champion – on the finish line
i am the beggar – holdin’ up the sign
i am the rookie – tryin’ to make the hall òf fame
i am the gangster – fixin’ the game
after all is said an’ done – with my maker i am one
after all is said an’ done – with my maker i am one
