Jesus Christ was a man that traveled through the land
Hard-working man and brave
He said to the rich, "Give your goods to the poor."
G D G
So they laid Jesus Christ in his grave
Yes, Jesus was a man, a carpenter by hand
His followers true and brave
One dirty coward called Judas Iscariot
G D G
Has laid poor Jesus in his grave
He went to the preacher, he went to the sheriff
Told them all the same
Sell all of your jewelry and give it to the Poor
So, they laid Jesus Christ in his grave
When Jesus come to town, the working folks around
Believed what he did say
The bankers and the preachers they nailed him on a cross
And they laid Jesus Christ in his grave
