Jesus and Elvis

This song is by Greg Brown and appears on the album The Poet Game (1994).

Jesus had some water, said "Wine'd be better yet"
Elvis picked up a guitar and made all women wet

Elvis he died young - Jesus he died younger
Elvis died of too much - Jesus died of hunger

Jesus sang down through the ages: "Do like you'd have'em
Do you"
Elvis rocked the universe with be-bop-a-lu-la

Now here they are on black velvet, in a parking lot in
Rocking my soul with rock'n'roll, soulful harmony

Jesus went back to heaven to be the King of Kings
But I hear the King of Rock'n'Roll is still restlessly

Go on home to Jesus, El - he's waiting there you'll find
You two can jam on old gospel songs - them are the best
