Cindy Lee Berryhill - When Did Jesus Become a Republican?

When did Jesus, become a republican
I thought he a poor man's friend
I thought he would be right there in my time of need

When did Jesus, turn the tables on spenders
And join the money lenders
Instead of sharing with the lepers
Selling shares of Haliburton

When did Jesus tear away the heartland
From the new york island
Start throwing stones at the helpless
When they can't get health insurance
Take away the shelters for the homeless
This don't sound like you Jesus

When did Jesus, become a republican
I thought he a poor man's friend
I thought he would be right there in my time of need

When did Jesus become a politician
And whisper to the preacher man
To tell the congregation
Exactly who to vote for in the next election

When did Jesus, join the corporate billionaires
Did the tax cuts take him there
Still can't see him exportin jobs for the cheap labor

When did Jesus, become a republican
I thought he a poor man's friend
I thought he would be right there in my time of need
