I Ain't No Jesus

from The Storyteller's Suitcase

I AIN’T NO JESUS

I  ain’t no Jesus

I’ve never saved a soul

Never walked on water

Except ice and snow

There’s a rumor in the choir

I'm just the luckiest guy they know

But I ain't no Jesus

Never saved a soul

I ain't no Buddha

I struggle with wrong from right

Ain't no Prince  of Peace

I've hit the floor in a good bar fight

I’ll ask forgiveness come Sunday

Asking for trouble Saturday night

I ain't no Buddha

I struggle with wrong from right

(chorus)

Now I can't walk on water

Can't part the sea

The only miracle that I’ve seen

Is you walking down the aisle to me

Now I can't talk to God

I ain't divine

The only miracle that I’ve seen

Is you’d let your heart be mine

I ain't no carpenter

I'm more sailor than Saint

I’d put a hammer on a thumbnail

Swear so loud

They close Heaven’s gates

But I built you this four post bed

Now Darling, don't make me wait

I ain't no carpenter

I'm more sailor than Saint

(repeat chorus)

I ain't no Savior

Ain’t got the words

How do you preach to the masses

When you can't even talk to the girl

You get a little courage from holy wine

But then your speech gets slurred

I ain't no Savior

I ain’t got the words
