I love country music for many reasons but especially for this. You never hear ANYTHING like this in pop, rock, or rap. It takes a good man with a good heart to sing this song. God bless Josh Turner He always wore those worn out flip-flops Spent hours in his Daddy's workshop he loved being on the water Fishing with His friends He always listened to the old folks When they'd tell stories and crack jokes Didn't talk back to his Mama When she got onto Him Oh, that's just the way He was raised Had to finish all His chores 'fore He could go outside and play they always went to church that's were he learned how to pray And that's just the way He was raised He grew His hair out when He got older Grew it clear down to His shoulders Started hanging with the outcasts When He went off to town Some called Him a troublemaker Even some said a lawbreaker No matter how they talked about Him He never put nobody down 'Cause that's just the way He was raised When people start to gossip, He'd just walk away He always loved his neighbor no matter what they'd say Oh, that's just the way He was raised On a cross, on a hill That longhaired boy was killed All our sins washed away When He walked out of that grave Oh, that's just the way He was raised there's no way we can measure The sacrifice He made He knew He had to die For our debt to be paid Oh, that's just the way He was raised It took the hand of God to roll the stone away And that's just the way He was raised Yeah, that's just the way He was raised This song made me cry because how beautiful it is. It reminds you that Jesus was a boy and had fun like any other human.
