Hayes Carll She Left Me for Jesus Lyrics

We've been datin' since high school
We never once left this town
We use to go out on the weekends
And we''d drink til we drowned
But now she's acting funny and I don't understand
I think that she's found her, some other man

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 kickin' his ***

She showed me a picture, all I could do was stare
At that freak in his sandals with his long pretty hair
They must think that I'm stupid or I don't have a clue
Ill bet hes a commie, or ever worse yet a Jew


She's given up whiskey and takin' up wine
While she prays for his troubles, had forgot about mine
I'm a gonna get even, I can't handle the shame
Why last time we made love, she even called out his name


It coulda been Carlos or even Billy or Ted
But if I ever find Jesus
He's gonna wish he was dead, amen
