Merle Haggard Jesus Christ
FAREWELL MERLE HAGGARD. One of my favorite Country Music legend, Merle Haggard, died on 7 April 2016, at age of 79. He is the grizzled country music legend whose songs such as “Okie from Muskogee” and “Fightin’ Side of Me” that made him a voice for the workingman and the outsider. Additionally, Merle Haggard has been open about his Christian faith, and has sang various gospel songs including this song Jesus Christ. Haggard has a wonderfully distinctive singing voice, and is one of America’s greatest songwriters.

Merle Haggard Jesus Christ


Jesus Christ was a man that traveled through the land
A carpenter true and brave
He said to the rich give your goods to the poor
And they laid Jesus Christ in the grave

He went to the sick and he went to the poor
And he went to the hungry and the lame
And he said that the meek would inherit the whole world
And they laid Jesus Christ in the grave

One day Jesus stopped at a rich man’s door
What must I do to be saved
Take all you own and give it to the poor
And they laid Jesus Christ in the grave

When the love of the poor shall one day turn to hate
When the patience of the workers give away
Would be better for the rich if they never been born
So they laid Jesus Christ in the grave

When Jesus came to town all the working folks around
Believed what he did say
But bankers and preachers nailed him to the cross
And they laid Jesus Christ in the grave

Well the people held their breath when they heard about his death
And everybody wondered why
Was the landlord and soldiers lawmen there had hired
That nailed Jesus Christ in the sky

We would lay Jesus Christ in the grave Lord Lord
We would lay Jesus Christ in the grave
And if Jesus preached today like he preached in Galilee
We would lay Jesus Christ in his grave.
