Kris Kristofferson – Jesus Was A Capricorn chords

Jesus Was A Capricorn
Written & Performed by Kris Kristofferson

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)
Sounds good fingerpicked, country-style, with alternating bass and fills.


D G DJesus was a Capricorn, he ate organic food,
E AHe believed in love and peace and never wore no shoes;
D G DLong hair, beard and sandals and a funky bunch of friends,
A D Reckon they just nailed him up so he'd come down again.
G DCause everybody's got to have somebody to look down on,
A G DThose they can be better than at any time they please,
G DSome folks doin' something dirty decent folks can frown on,
A G DIf you can't find nobody else, then help yourself to me.
D G DEggheads fussin,' rednecks cussin,' hippies for their hair,
E AOthers laugh at straights, who laugh at freaks, who laugh at squares;
D G DSome folks hate the whites, who hate the blacks, who hate the Klan,
A DMost of us hate anything that we don't understand.
(Repeat Chorus)
