Hayes Carll - Jesus And Elvis Lyrics




Jesus and Elvis
Painted on velvet
Hanging at the bar here every night
It's good to be back again
Oh, me and my old friends
Beneath the neon cross and the string of Christmas lights

Lola built this joint in '67
And her boy went off to fight on Christmas Eve
In a war nobody won
She lost her only son
Now everything he loved is what you see

Jesus and Elvis
Painted on velvet
Hanging at the bar here every night

Lola told him Jesus loves a sinner
And his daddy told him music saved his soul
Between the drunkards and the band
It's a fittin' promised land
For the King of Kings and the king of rock-n-roll

Jesus and Elvis
Painted on velvet
Hanging at the bar here every night
It's good to be back again
Oh, me and my old friends
Beneath the neon cross and the string of Christmas lights
It's good to be back again
Oh, me and my old friends
Beneath the neon cross and a string of Christmas lights

By and by, Lord, by and by
By and by, Lord, by and by

So if you need a shot of Dickel or redemption
Where the delta meets the Sea of Galilee
Get washed in the blood
Of the Mississippi mud
Come all you non-believers and you'll see
