Lyrics
I KEEP CALLING JESUS
Franciscus Henri (BMG MUSIC)
I keep calling Jesus
But he won’t answer the phone
I can see his lights on
But he isn’t home
I’m in need of saving
my credit is low
I keep calling Jesus
But he doesn’t want to know

I keep calling Jesus
I’m in need of help
I went down to the river
baptised myself
I don’t feel any better
but my clothes are clean
I keep calling Jesus
but he’s acting kind a mean

I went down to the chapel
and I offered to sing
the parson he said “bless you”
But wouldn’t let me in
I said “Don’t you save sinners?”
He said “we’ve got enough”

I keep calling Jesus
I get a kind rebuff
I keep calling Jesus
but he’s on a holiday
He’s hasn’t turned off his radio
I can Hear It play
they are playing Hallelujah
By Handel not Cohen
I keep calling Jesus
But Jesus isn’t home

So if you are down hearted
and you feel all alone
don’t try calling Jesus.
Jesus isn’t home

Big smile. My clothes feel cleaner, too. I wanted the song to go on for another few rounds just to hear how tight your jeans got after a few more key changes :-) Fine work, Franc. God is laughing. Surely,,,?

God only laughed
because my jeans shrank..other than that I don't think he has a sense of humour certainly not a sense of irony.

Brilliant!
Sly and very clever. A perfect setting for a bit of old time country.

Cheers

Mark if it got you through a long day
that's all the reward I need. remember with clean clothes you can get into anywhere...perhaps not the chapel.

Calling Jesus
Played this gig many times...
Great parody of the country legends.
The production here supports the material, that cliche key modulation was gorgeous!
Nietzsche said, "Like without music is error." Whose making mistake after mistake?

Jesus does hear you
Your vocals and musical arrangements are lovely....but you do have it wrong Jesus does hear your prayers...but He does not listen to people who continually sin, fornicate, lie, steal, and are drunkards ...God listens to those who truly repent, follow Him...and turn their lives around...this is what Jesus said...(John 9:13)Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.

God Bless you..

Nice listen.

Can tell its America though. No churches here in the UK that wouldn't pull your arm off if you tried to get in!
