WOULD JESUS WEAR A ROLEX (Margaret Archer / Chet Atkins) Ray Stevens - 1987 Woke up this mornin' turned on my TV set There in livin' color was somethin' I can't forget This man was preachin' at me.. yeah.. layin' on the charm Asking me for 20 with 10,000 on his arm He wore designer clothing and a big smile on his face Selling me salvation while they sang Amazing Grace Asking me for money when he had all the signs of weath Almost wrote a check out.. yeah.. but then I asked myself… Would He wear a pinky ring, would He drive a fancy car Would His wife wear furs and diamonds, would His dressing room have a star If he came back tomorrow there's something I'd like to know Would Jesus wear a rolex on His television show Would Jesus be political if he came back to earth Have his second home in Palm Springs.. yeah.. but try to hide his worth Take money from those poor folks when He comes back again And admit He's talked to all those preachers who said they'd been-a talking to Him Would He wear a pinky ring, would He drive a fancy car Would His wife wear furs and diamonds, would His dressing room have a star If he came back tomorrow there's something I'd like to know Could ya tell me - Would Jesus wear a rolex Would Jesus wear a rolex Would Jesus wear a rolex on His television show Would Jesus wear a rolex on His television show (Transcribed by Bette Carl & Machiel Bain - October 2002)
