Jesus Ain’t Coming Back

This was a fun “laser cut puzzle” to build

I was listening to The Dead Country Radio Show and The Dead Roots Syndicate YouTube podcasts yesterday. These are great Alt-Country shows and you can hear the Johnny Cash “man in black” influence throughout the music – whether it be rockabilly, alt-country, bluegrass or some other hybrid sound. Just awesome. Kicks psycho billy up a notch or three…

I woke up (and with tongue firmly planted in cheek) wrote these lyrics. At 8 am I decided to try to write a song in 3 hours since I needed to go on a nice bike ride at 11. It is meant to be a song with dark humor – I’ve never been a protester, but I do try to be more creative about my feelings than just ranting – Lord knows there’s too much of that these days.

My all time psycho billy bands are:

The Cramps
The Gun Club
Blanche

Its an OK song – I’m pleased that I could get something recorded right away. What I would love is a lower voice singer, singing like Johnny Cash or one of the many cool groups on those podcast shows.

It was fun to make believe.

Jesus ain’t coming back
Cuz he never left
We’ve ruined heaven
And he’s bereft

We took Gods good green earth
And made it crack
Jesus ain’t coming back

Jesus ain’t coming back
He left on a Northbound train
We worship idle politicians
Antisocial media pain

We took Gods good green earth
And made it crack
Jesus ain’t coming back

Jesus ain’t coming back
There’s just too much to fix
God said “they broke it, they bought it”
We’ve opened the door marked 666

We took Gods good Green earth
And made it crack
Jesus ain’t coming back
