The Oak Ridge Boys – Rhythm Guitar lyrics

Nobody wants to play rhythm guitar behind Jesus
Everybody wants to be the lead singer in the band

A preacher I once talked to in Washington DC
He told me preaching the gospel isn't all that it should be
I said that it didn't really surprise me but I've often wonder why
I never forget the words he said or the look that was in his eye

He said Nobody wants to play rhythm guitar behind Jesus
It seems like Everybody wants to be the lead singer in the band
I know it's hard to get a bead on what we find
When everybody pushing for the head of the line
I know it ain't working out at all the way he planned when

I once shared a pizza with a pop star on the new york city street
He was the most unhappy prophet you would ever want to meet
He said he really wanted to save the world he just couldn't imagine how
But he'd written a song about what's gone wrong and I'm singing it now

He said Nobody wants to play rhythm guitar behing Jesus
It seems like Everybody wants to be the lead singer in the band
I know it's hard to get a bead on what we find
When everybody pushing for the head of the line
I know it ain't working out at all the way he planned when

Nobody wants to play rhythm guitar behing Jesus
Everybody wants to be the lead singer in the band
