I’m Glad I’m On The Inside Looking Out

Song Author Rusty Gabbard og Hank Snow Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]In the days of Noah [F]just before the [C]flood
When the wicked world had all forgotten [G7]God   
Brother [C]Noah built a boat which [F]above God's wrath did float
And the [G7]people saw that they were made of [C]mud  

As the doors stood open [F]with the gang planked [C]out  
Noah and his family entered with a [G7]shout
When the [C]scoffers stretched their necks
Noah stepped [F]out on the deck and said
I'm so [G7]glad I'm on the inside looking [C]out  

Oh I'd rather be on the [F]inside looking [C]out  
Than to [F]be upon the outside looking [C]in  
When the [G7]rain began to fall [C]sinners on the Lord did call
But the [D7]door was shut and night was [G7]setting in

[C]Then old Noah from the [F]window looking [C]out  
Gazed to [F]heaven beyond the water [C]spout
And he [G7]said I thank the Lord that [C]I took Him at his [F]word
I'm so [G7]glad I'm on the inside looking [C]out  

Good old Daniel lived in [F]Babylon long [C]ago  
And he had the grace to tell the devil [G7]no   
Though [C]he prayed three times a day
In the [F]good old fashioned way
They [G7]said he to the lions den must [C]go  

And lions made him wel[F]comed to their [C]home
For they knew he was nothing but [G7]backbone
When the [C]king looked in and said are you [F]alive or are you dead
He was [G7]stirred as Daniel spoke in gentle [C]tone

Oh I'd rather be on the [F]inside looking [C]out  
Than to [F]be upon the outside looking [C]in  
While you [G7]paced the palace floor [C]I had naught to do but snore
Jesus [D7]put a padlock on each lions [G7]chin   

Good [C]old Daniel from the [F]inside looking [C]out  
Don’t [F]you think that he felt good [C]enough to shout
Then he [G7]said long live the king and [C]then started in to [F]sing
I'm so [G7]glad I'm on the inside looking [C]out  

In the days of Noah just before the flood
When the wicked world had all forgotten God
Brother Noah built a boat which above God's wrath did float
And the people saw that they were made of mud

As the doors stood open with the gang planked out
Noah and his family entered with a shout
When the scoffers stretched their necks
Noah stepped out on the deck and said
I'm so glad I'm on the inside looking out

Oh I'd rather be on the inside looking out
Than to be upon the outside looking in
When the rain began to fall sinners on the Lord did call
But the door was shut and night was setting in

Then old Noah from the window looking out
Gazed to heaven beyond the water spout
And he said I thank the Lord that I took Him at his word
I'm so glad I'm on the inside looking out

Good old Daniel lived in Babylon long ago
And he had the grace to tell the devil no
Though he prayed three times a day
In the good old fashioned way
They said he to the lions den must go

And lions made him welcomed to their home
For they knew he was nothing but backbone
When the king looked in and said are you alive or are you dead
He was stirred as Daniel spoke in gentle tone

Oh I'd rather be on the inside looking out
Than to be upon the outside looking in
While you paced the palace floor I had naught to do but snore
Jesus put a padlock on each lions chin

Good old Daniel from the inside looking out
Don’t you think that he felt good enough to shout
Then he said long live the king and then started in to sing
I'm so glad I'm on the inside looking out
