lyrics

JESUS WEPT
(Mark Utley - Sleep Cat Music/BMI)

Jesus came and Jesus tried
Jesus wept and Jesus died
And I ain't feelin' that good myself today
I'm broke as hell, all my bills are due
My girlfriend's mad and my wife is, too
And everyone's lined up for judgin' me

The glass ain't half empty and it ain't half full
I'm drinkin' from the bottle like I always do
That's the way life makes some sense to me
I found religion at the local bar
I heard God singin' in a steel guitar
Tellin' me He loves a wretch like me
Jesus came and Jesus tried
Jesus wept and Jesus died
And I ain't feelin' that good myself today

Elvis died on the bathroom floor
And old George Jones ain't singin' no more
The radio ain't no damned good to me
There's some jackass in a jacked-up truck
With a fake accent and a million bucks
Tellin' me he's Country as can be

I wanna hear a song about a workin' man
Some good soul doin' the best they can
A heartbroke fool who's lonesome just like me
I'll play my old Waylon 'til the break of dawn
And all you kids can just get off of my lawn
'Cause I'm a mean old dog, just let me be
Jesus came and Jesus tried
Jesus wept and Jesus died
And I ain't feelin' that good myself today
No, I ain't feelin' that good myself today
