Ian Moore – Muddy Jesus lyrics

Jesus lived in a ramshackle shack
With a fat New Orleans junkie
Charismatic solo lonesome some say
He was born plain lucky

Cruise the streets of Juarez
In his low-cut El Dorado
Divine command and oil slick hands
With brash and bold bravado

Mother Mary said, "Your time has come
For the river's wide but can be fought and won"
For the very love of God and Man
Jesus crossed the Rio Grande

Look at here, Jesus fell in step with a group
Of high-powered federals
Sat them down and formed their plan
Through a haze of cold Tecates

Judas said, "Now, Jeez, I know
You're prone to walk on water
If you swim downstream there's a better chance
That you'll make it across the border, yeah"

Mother Mary said, "Your time has come
For the river's wide but can be fought and won"
For the very love of God and Man
Jesus crossed the Rio Grande

Jesus made his run on a hot
And humid Friday night
But his vision, it was blinded
By the bright El Paso lights

He never saw the shot
That left him short of freedom's land
But the faithful they're still waiting
For the coming of their man

Well, Mother Mary said, "Your time has come
For the river's wide but can be fought and won"
For the very love of God and Man
Jesus crossed the Rio Grande
