All the versions sounded wrong and this sounds perfect

Eb                               Cm
When I was but a young man I was wild and full of fire
Eb                                   Cm
A youth within my teens, but full of challenge and desire
Eb                               Cm
I ran away from home and left my mother and my dad
  Ab                    Bb               Cm
I know it grieved them so to think their only boy was bad.

  Eb                                  Cm
I fell in with an outlaw band, their names were known quite well
    Eb                                    Cm
How many times we robbed and plundered, I could never tell
     Eb                    Cm
This kind of sinful living leads only to a fall
   Ab                   Bb               Cm
I learned that much and more the night I heard my Master call.

Ab                   Eb           Ab             Eb
One night we rustled cattle, a thousand head or so
Ab                    Eb                 Cm
And started them out on the trail that leads to Mexico
      Ab                  Bb       Eb                  Bb
But a norther started blowing and lightning flashed about
        Eb            Ab            Eb                  Eb
I thought someone was calling me, I thought I heard a shout.

Eb                              G                        Gm
Then at that moment lightning struck not twenty yards from me
     Ab                                      Eb
And left there was a giant cross where once there was a tree
And this time I knew I heard a voice, a voice so sweet and strange
              Eb                      Cm
A voice that came from everywhere, a voice that called my name.

Eb                               Cm
So frightened I was thinking of sinful deeds I'd done
Eb                                     Cm
I failed to see the thousand head of cattle start to run
Eb                                  Cm
The cattle they stampeded, were running all around
Ab              Bb               Cm
My pony ran but stumbled and it threw me to the ground.

Ab                 Eb          Ab                Eb         
I felt the end was near, that death would be the price
Ab                     Eb                   Cm
When a mighty bolt of lightning showed the face of Jesus Christ
Ab                   Bb               Eb            Bb
And I cried oh Lord forgive me, don't let it happen now
Bb                     Eb                          Eb
I want to live for you alone, Oh God these words I vow.

Eb                          G                 G
My wicked past unfolded, I thought of wasted years
      Ab                                   Eb
When another bolt of lightning killed a hundred head of steers
          Cm                              Fm    
And the others rushed on by me and I was left to live
     Eb                          Cm
The Master had a reason, life is his to take or give.

   Eb                                    Cm
A miracle performed that night, I wasn't meant to die
    Eb                                 Cm
The dead ones formed a barricade least six or seven high
     Eb                           Cm           
And right behind it there was I, afraid but safe and sound
   Ab                  Bb              Cm   
I cried and begged for mercy kneeling there upon the ground.

  Eb                       Cm
A pardon I was granted, my sinful soul set free
   Eb                                Cm
No more to fear the angry waves upon life's stormy sea
   Eb                           Cm
Forgiven by the love of God, a love that will remain
  Ab               Bb                 Cm      Cm7       Cm
I gave my life and soul the night the Saviour called my name..
