  • JESUS CHRIST
  • (Woody Guthrie)
  • Jesus Christ was a man who traveled through the land
  • Hard working man and brave
  • He said to the rich, "Give your goods to the poor."
  • So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.
  • Jesus was a man, a carpenter by hand
  • His followers true and brave
  • One dirty little coward called Judas Iscariot
  • Has laid Jesus Christ in his grave
  • He went to the sick, he went to the poor,
  • And he went to the hungry and the lame;
  • Said that the poor would one day win this world,
  • And so they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.
  • He went to the preacher, he went to the sheriff,
  • Told them all the same;
  • Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the Poor,
  • But they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.
  • When Jesus came to town, the working folks around,
  • Believed what he did say;
  • The bankers and the preachers they nailed him on a cross,
  • And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.
  • Poor working people, they follered him around,
  • Sung and shouted gay;
  • Cops and the soldiers, they nailed him in the air,
  • And they nailed Jesus Christ in his grave.
  • Well the people held their breath when they heard about his death,
  • And everybody wondered why;
  • It was the landlord and the soldiers that he hired.
  • That nailed Jesus Christ in the sky.
  • When the love of the poor shall one day turn to hate.
  • When the patience of the workers gives away
  • "Would be better for you rich if you never had been born"
  • So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.
  • This song was written in New York City
  • Of rich men, preachers and slaves
  • Yes, if Jesus was to preach like he preached in Galillee,
  • They would lay Jesus Christ in his grave.
