Jesus Gonna Be Here
Tom Waits Lyrics


Well, Jesus gonna be here
He's gonna be here soon
He's gonna cover us up with leaves
With a blanket from the moon
With a promise and a vow
And a lullaby for my brow
Jesus gonna be here
Gonna be here soon

Well, I'm not gonna do nothing
I'm gonna wait here
I don't have to shout
I got no reason, yeah
And I got no doubt, yeah
I'm gonna get myself unfurled
From this mortal coiled-up world
Jesus gonna be here
Gonna be here soon

I got to keep my eyes, keep 'em wide open
So I can see my Lord, yeah
I'm gonna watch the horizon
For my brand-new Ford, yeah

Well, I can hear him rolling on down the lane
I said "Hollywood be thy name"
'Cause Jesus gonna be
He gonna be here soon, yeah

Well, I've got to keep myself, got to keep myself faithful
And you know that I've been so good
Except for drinking
But he knew that I would, yeah
And when I'm gonna leave this place better
Than the way I found that it was
And Jesus gonna be here
Gonna be here soon, yeah
I know my Jesus gonna be here
He gonna be here soon, yeah
I know my Jesus gonna be here
He gonna be here soon

This was my brother's favorite Tom Waits song. He would've turned 40 today on this, Dia de Los Muertos, 2020. He lived by this line, and took it as his motto: "Well I'm gonna leave this place better than the way I found that it was, cause Jesus gonna be here."

This is the song I wanted to hear today. This is my happy song.

Melanie Lane
