House of The Rising Sun

I have used this song along with parts of Amazing Grace intertwined and it makes and awesome song. Really hits home to those that need to come to the Lord. Read the story below and then read the lyrics.

Jesus went on to say, "There was once a man who had two sons.

The younger one said to him, 'Father, give me my share of the property now.' So the man divided his property between his two sons. After a few days the younger son sold his part of the property and left home with the money. He went to a country far away, where he wasted his money in reckless living. He spent everything he had. Then a severe famine spread over that country, and he was left without a thing. So he went to work for one of the citizens of that country, who sent him out to his farm to take care of the pigs. He wished he could fill himself with the bean pods the pigs ate, but no one gave him anything to eat.

Luke 15:11 to 17

The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun


There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

In Memory - Karen L. Evert




Karen L. Evert, my wife of 13 wonderful years, went home to the Lord on May, 27, 2007. Karen fought a courageous almost 2 year battle with Leiomyosarcoma, a rare cancer.


Even after 9 rounds of chemo, she still had a smile.







Karen was a great friend, mother, wife and just one amazing person. I’m sad that she is gone from the physical world, but I am extremely happy that she is singing and rejoicing in heaven. I’m glad I got to spend 14 wonderful years with you. Personally, you were the better half of this marriage. You made me a better person. It was such a great honor to have known you.

You will always have a place in my heart.

Join Together






I have used this song to open worship services and it is a great one to get things rolling. I have modified a few words (
in red) that make it more of a religious song.




Join Together by The Who

When you hear this sound a-comin',
Hear the drummers drumming,

I want you to join together with the band,

We don't move in any 'ticular direction,

And we don't make no collections,
I want you to join together with the band.

Do you really think I care,
What you read or what you wear,
I want you to join together with the band,

There's a million ways to laugh,
And Jesus is the path,
Come on and join together with the band.

Everybody join together,
I want you to join together,

Come on and join together with the band,

We need you to join together,
come on and join together,

Come on and join together with the band.

You don't have to play,
You can follow His way,
I want you to join together with the band,

We don't know where we're going,
But the season's right for knowing,
I want you to join together with the band.

It's the singer not the song,
That makes the music move along,
I want you to join together with the band,

This is the biggest band you'll find,

It's as deep as it is wide,
Come on and join together with the band,

Hey hey hey hey hey hey, well everybody come on.

Come on and join, join together with the band,
We need you to join together, everybody come on,
Hey hey hey, join together with the band.
