Jesus Christ (uncomplete)

cd imgI WAS SO MUCH YOUNGER THEN Vol. 1 (Ten Million In A Week) (T-676)

  The Home of Bob Dylan, Minneapolis MN  September 1960  

Jesus Christ was a man that travelled through the land
A carpenter true and brave
But that dirty little coward named Judas Iscariot
He laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

One day Jesus knocked on a rich man's door
What must I do to be saved?
Sell all your goods and give it to the poor
So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

Jesus was a man that travelled through the land
A carpenter true and brave
But that dirty little coward named Judas Iscariot
He laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

People of the land took Jesus by the hand
Followed him far and wide
Take to the rich, give the poor in the world
So they killed Jesus Christ on the side.

When the love of the poor sure some day turn to hate
And the patience of the workers gives away
It would be best for you rich, if you're never been born 
So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave.

This song was written in New York City
Of carpenters, rich men and slaves
If Jesus preached today what he preached in Galilee
They would lay Jesus Christ in his grave.

Jesus was a man that [......] by hand
A carpenter true and brave
But that dirty little coward named Judas Iscariot
Has laid Jesus Christ in his grave.  up
