Jesus was a Wino too
Lydia Loveless

Intro 
C G F C 

[Verse 1]
C
Well, some days you wake up 
                       G                  
and life feels meaningless

You don’t even have the strength 
                       C                   
to get up and get dressed

Then when you do, you see your 
                                                                     G 
clothes are all torn to shreds

And you can’t even afford to buy 
                 C             
a needle and thread


C
So, you might go to church to 
                    G                
bow your head and pray

But that ain’t always enough to 
                 C             
get through the day

Sometimes you’ll feel bitter, you’ll 
                                                                      G 
say that this priest is a mooch

And you might just take all of 
                                                                         C 
your tithes with a bottle of hooch

[Chorus]
F 
And if people knew, they would 
           C
look down on you
                             G 
Don’t they know that it’s true? 
F             G     C 
Jesus was a wino, too

[Verse 2]
C
People may ask, “Why have your 
             G 
lips turned black?”

“Hey, what the hell is so funny, 
       
man? Why have your eyes gone 
C
slack?“ 

They might feel high and mighty 
                     G             
when I can barely stand

Well, just tell them I couldn’t turn 

down one my glass of the blood 
        C 
of the lamb

[Chorus]
F 
Because if people knew, they 
                  C           
would call me a fool
                         G                
I wish they knew it was true: 
F                             C
Jesus was a wino, too was a Wino too


[Chorus]
F 
Because if people knew, they 
                  C
would call me a fool
                          G               
I wish they knew it was true: 
F                   C          
Jesus was a wino, too

[Verse 3]
F
And this here six-dollar bottle is 
                    C
just about that all I can afford
    D 
If I can’t find a corkscrew, I’ll just 
                      G 
smash it open right here on the 

floor
         C 
And you might call me crazy for 
                         G 
lapping this off the ground

But a few years ago I would be 
                           C 
drinking with Jesus right now

‘Cause they may not have had 
                                                                        G 
Carlo Rossi way back in his day

Jesus had only water but he 
F                     C
turned it to wine anyway

[Chorus]
    F 
And nobody asked, “What would
       C 
Jesus do?”
                   G    F
‘Cause everybody knew Jesus 

             C 
was a wino, too
F                                 
No, nobody asked, “What would 
C
Jesus do?”
                       G                    F
‘Cause everybody knew Jesus 
              C
was a wino, too


C F C F 
Ah huhhhhhh ah huh
