Johnny Cash – You Can't Beat Jesus Christ lyrics

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
(Praise the Lord guitar)

Even though I am a sinner
He will always be my friend
Well, He starts in the middle
And He does not have an end
And when my soul was held for ransom
Yeah, He is the one who paid the price

Ain't no two ways about it
I owe it all to Jesus Christ
(Praise the Lord harmonica)

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
(I mean it, that's true)
