Jesus Was A Capricorn
Written & Performed by Kris Kristofferson
Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)
Sounds good fingerpicked, country-style, with alternating bass and fills.
Jesus was a Capricorn, he ate organic food,
He believed in love and peace and never wore no shoes;
Long hair, beard and sandals and a funky bunch of friends,
Reckon they just nailed him up so he'd come down again.
Cause everybody's got to have somebody to look down on,
Those they can be better than at any time they please,
Some folks doin' something dirty decent folks can frown on,
If you can't find nobody else, then help yourself to me.
Eggheads fussin,' rednecks cussin,' hippies for their hair,
Others laugh at straights, who laugh at freaks, who laugh at squares;
Some folks hate the whites, who hate the blacks, who hate the Klan,
Most of us hate anything that we don't understand.
Jesus was a Capricorn

And never wore no shoes
Long hair, beard and sandles
And a funky bunch of friends
Reckon we'd just nail him up
If he came down again
'Cause everybody's gotta have somebody to look down on
Prove they can be better than at any time they choose
Someone doin' somethin' dirty decent folks can frown on
If you can't find nobody else, then help yourself to me
Eggheads fussin' rednecks cussin'
Hippies for their hair
Others laugh at straights who laugh at
Freaks who laugh at squares
Some folks hate the Whites
Who hate the Blacks who hate the Klan
Most of us hate anything that
We don't understand
