The Baptism Of Jesse Taylor
Johnny Russell
Album: All Time Greatest Hits (2002)

Intro | E | B7 |
 
Chorus
E                               A                E
They baptized Jesse Taylor in Cedar Creek last Sunday
                                                B7
Jesus gained a soul and Satan lost a good right arm
           E                     A                 E
They all cried hallelujah when Jesse's head went under
                         B7            E
Cause this time he went under for the Lord

E                                A              E
Among the local taverns there'll be a slack in business
                                                         B7
Cause Jesse's drinking came before the groceries and the rent
            E                  A                E
Among the local women there'll be a slack in cheating
                       B7           E
Cause Jesse won't be stepping out again

E                                  A               E
The scars on Jesse's knuckles are more than just respected
                                                   B7
The county courthouse records tell all there is to tell
             E                    A                  E
The pockets of the gamblers will soon miss Jesse's money
                        B7               E
And a black eye of the law will soon be well


Repeat Chorus

E                              A                E
From now on Nancy Taylor can proudly speak to neighbors
                                                 B7
And tell them just how Jesse took up with little Jim
      E                       A             E
Now Jimmy's got a daddy and Jesse's got a family
                       B7             E
And Franklin County's got a lot more man


Repeat Chorus 2X
