Lyrics: "Jews for Jesus Blues" (by Clem Snide)

These lyrics really need to be on-line. Additionally, this is a really good song, even without the funny lyrics.

(keep in mind that this is a relatively slow song played with a traditional blues country background. The singer has a slightly twangy country voice. There's a name for this style of music, but I don't know it; however, it's much funnier that this particular song is sang in this style)

"Jews for Jesus Blues" by Clem Snide
I was searching for something I could not describe
So I stared at the sun 'til the tears filled my eyes
Well, I thought I was empty, so I paid the cost
But now that I'm found, I miss being lost

Well, I opened my heart, and I let Jesus in
With the promise that I would be free of my sin
But I only felt guilty that he died on the cross
Now that I'm found, I miss being lost
Now that I'm found, I miss being lost

Well, I don't want to suffer, and I don't want to die
I want the clouds parted and endless blue sky
But someone up there has a different plan
Now that I'm saved, I wish I was damned
Now that I'm saved, I wish I was damned
Now that I'm saved, I wish I was damned!
Now that I'm saved, I wish I was . . .
