She Left Me For Jesus
by Hayes Carll

We've been datin' since high school
We never once left this town
We use to go out on the weekends
And we''d drink til we drowned
But now she's acting funny and I don't understand
I think that she's found her, some other man

She left me for Jesus and that just ain't fair
She says that he's perfect, how could I compare
She says I should find him and I'll know peace at last
If I ever find Jesus, I'm kickin' his ass

She showed me a picture, all I could do was stare
At that freak in his sandals with his long pretty hair
They must think that I'm stupid or I don't have a clue
Ill bet hes a commie, or ever worse yet a Jew


She's given up whiskey and takin' up wine
While she prays for his troubles, had forgot about mine
I'm a gonna get even, I can't handle the shame
Why last time we made love, she even called out his name


It coulda been Carlos or even Billy or Ted
But if I ever find Jesus
He's gonna wish he was dead, amen

“Maybe he’s a commie or even worse a Jew...” hahaha

Peter Short

Somewhere Frank Zappa is smiling...

Tim Petty

This guy gets it

Zim Ryu

The references and irreverence woven into this song are well done and very funny.


Such a wonderful parody...about such hypocracy....

Charlie Godart

I like it too and have studied the Bible for 30 years. It's clever and i'm not offended !! Why? Because God has the greatest sense of humor and I walk in Love like my Dad. God is my role model...who's yours?

Robert Belair

I love that bit about the Shroud of Turin found in her bedroom.


The fact that this song pisses off uptight Christians makes me like it even more.

"How come you're nekked?" "I don't tell you how to do your job..."
