I’m not a big fan of country music or novelty songs, but NPR had a piece on Hayes Carll earlier this month and his chorus to She Left Me for Jesus made me laugh out loud.
Give it a whirl:
Here’s that chorus again in case you missed it:
She left me for Jesus and that just ain’t fair
She says that he’s perfect, how could I compare
She says I should find him and I’ll know peace at last
If I ever find Jesus I’m kicin’ his ass
I love how “finding Jesus” goes from an abstraction about salvation to an actual threat (not that Jesus is scared, mind you).
