I was on my way to somewhere to the Mexicali sand
A man sat down beside me, he had scars upon his hands
He told me some stories - I told him some lies
Light shone through my darkness, cast shadows from my mind
His eyes they looked right through me
Oh I knew he carried weight
Something real was going down that day
Oh I told him I'm a sinner
He said that's O. K.
I'm not here to change you anyway
He was gone when I turned around
Was it Jesus - Jesus on a Greyhound
Oh we talked about the world gone bad
The troubles we had seen
We talked about the dirt
Brown shoes he wore on his feet
He said I'm tired and weary
I've been riding a long way
Let me rest my eyes now
Let me drift away
He acted Like he knew me
Then he fell asleep
I had no More secrets
I could keep
Oh I told him I'm a sinner
He said that's O. K.
I'm not here to change you anyway
He was gone when I turned around
Was it Jesus - Jesus on a Greyhound
Somewhere in the sunlit mornin'
I stepped off the bus in the
Middle of the city of angels
And that long haired hippie was up
And gone where devils run and play and lust
Lookin for the danger
Oh and I looked at my feet and
Saw the shoes that he had worn and
Thank God for that beautiful stranger
Was that Jesus
Was that Jesus
Was that Jesus
Oh I told him I'm a sinner
He said that's O. K.
I'm not here to change you anyway
He was gone when I turned around
Was it Jesus - Jesus on a Greyhound
And I'll rise again
Ain't no power on earth can keep me down
And I'll rise, I'll rise again
Oh ain't no death can keep me in the ground
Was that Jesus
