He was born to be known
As everybody's brother
He is the Father Son and Mary is his mother
He is a 'scuse my slanguage, well a compound country kinda guy
Yes he is
Ain't no way to get around it, you just can't beat Jesus Christ
No you can't
Well I used to crank and drank until my back was to the floor
I'd take it to the limit then I'd try to get some more
Yeah when it came to gamblin'
Well Lord I'd know how to roll them dice Yes I would
Ain't no reason to deny it, I have been saved by Jesus Christ
Yes I have
Ahh Praise the Lord guitar
Play it Eddie
Tell 'em about it John
Well Even though I am a sinner

He will always be my friend
He starts in the middle and he does not have an end
And when my soul was held for ransom he's the one who paid the price
Yeah he did Billy Joe
Ain't no two ways about it, I owe it all to Jesus Christ,
Ah praise the lord harmonica
Play it Rogie

Yes he was born to be known
As everybody's brother
He is the Father Son and Mary is his mother
He is a excuse my slanguage, well a compound country kinda guy
Yes he is
Ain't no way to get around it, you just can't beat Jesus Christ
I mean it
That's the truth
Hallelujah
