Verse

GJesus Christ was a man that Ctraveled through the land GHard working man and Dbrave GHe said to the rich, "Give your Cgoods to the poor." So they Glaid Jesus DChrist in his Ggrave

Chorus

Yes, CJesus was a man, a Gcarpenter by hand His followers true and Dbrave GOne dirty coward called CJudas Iscariot Has Glaid poor DJesus in his Ggrave

Verse

He went to the preacher, he went to the sheriff Told them all the same Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the Poor So, they laid Jesus Christ in his grave When Jesus come to town, the working folks around Believed what he did say The bankers and the preachers they nailed him on a cross And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave Now, the working people, follered him around Sing and shouted "Gay" But the Cops and the soldiers, nailed him in the air And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave Well the people held their breath when they heard about his death Everybody wondered why It was the landlord and the soldiers that he hired That nailed Jesus Christ in the sky This song was made in New York City Of rich mans, and preachers, and slaves If Jesus was to preach like he preached in Galillee They would lay Jesus Christ in his grave

Chorus

Yes, Jesus was a man, and a carpenter by hand His followers true and brave One dirty coward called Judas Iscariot Has laid poor Jesus in his grave
