BAPTISM OF JESSE TAYLOR (Dallas Frazier / Sanger D. Shafer) Jeannie C. Riley - 1973 George Jones - 1973 Johnny Russell - 1973 Connie Smith - 1973 Tanya Tucker - 1973 The Statler Brothers - 1973 Roy Drusky - 1974 The Lewis Family - 1975 Donna Fargo - 1980 Among the local taverns there'll be a slack in business 'Cause Jesse's drinkin' came before the groceries and the rent Among the local women there'll be a slack in cheatin' 'Cause Jesse won't be steppin' out again They baptized Jesse Taylor in Cedar Creek last Sunday Jesus gained a soul and Satan lost a good right arm They all cried "Hallelujah" when Jesse's head went under 'Cause this time he went under for the Lord The scars on Jesse's knuckles were more than just respected The county courthouse records tells all there is to tell The pockets of the gamblers will soon miss Jesse's money And the black eye of the law will soon be well They baptized Jesse Taylor in Cedar Creek last Sunday Jesus gained a soul and Satan lost a good right arm They all cried "Hallelujah" when Jesse's head went under 'Cause this time he went under for the Lord >From now on Nancy Taylor can proudly speak to neighbours And tell them how much Jesse took up with little Jim Now Jimmy's got a daddy and Jesse's got a family And Franklin County's got a lot more man They baptized Jesse Taylor in Cedar Creek last Sunday Jesus gained a soul and Satan lost a good right arm They all cried "Hallelujah" when Jesse's head went under 'Cause this time he went under for the Lord They baptized Jesse Taylor in Cedar Creek last Sunday Jesus gained a soul ............
