"The Ballad Of Arlis Richards" Lyrics [edit]
by Big Tent Revival | from the album Big Tent Revival

Arlis Richards was a man
Who lived among the blacks
He was a crosstie walker
With guitar on his back
Barely educated
Couldn't write his name
But when he played his guitar
Everybody sang:

I have been set free
Pain and misery
No longer follow me
I know Jesus!

Just outside of Memphis
Back in 52
Arlis was a ramblin
The way that he would do
Playing on his guitar
Sitting in the shade
People came to listen
To the music that he made

I have been set free
Pain and misery
No longer follow me
I know Jesus!

Some folks walked on by
When they saw the color of his skin
Others stayed and cried
When they saw the man within.

When his song was over
Arlis went his way
But some folks say revival
Started that day
