Lyrics

JESUS WENT DOWN TO NEW ORLEANS by Scott Detweiler

Jesus went down to New Orleans
Got a lot of work down there
There really weren’t no way
To feed his family in L.A.
He’ll be home with cash in 27 days

To take down sad lonely houses
Gotta fight mosquitoes and the rain
By the 15th day
The brother still ain’t seen no pay
And his kids was cryin hungry on the phone

He’s gotta get home to California
But gots no money for the train
His lady Western Union sent
What she borrowed from her friends
She’s still hungry but Jesus is comin home
