Joan Osborne - Assorted Songs



One of Us

If God had a name what would it be
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?


Chorus
And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home?


If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints
And all the prophets?


Chorus
Just tryin' to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone?
Nobody calling on the phone
'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

Chorus
Just tryin' to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone?
Back up to heaven all alone
Just tryin' to make his way home

Nobody calling on the phone
'cept for the Pope maybe in Rome...
