The Baptism Of Jesse Taylor Recorded by Johnny Russell written by Dallas Frazier and Sanger D. Shafer
C F C They baptized Jesse Taylor in Cedar Creek last Sunday G7 Jesus gained a soul and Satan lost a good right arm C F They all cried hallelujah when Jesse's head went under C G7 C Cause this time he went under for the Lord
F C Among the local taverns there'll be a slack in business G7 Cause Jesse's drinking came before the groceries and the rent C F Among the local women there'll be a slack in cheating C G7 C Cause Jesse won't be stepping out again
F C The scars on Jesse's knuckles are more than just respected G7 The county courthouse records tell all there is to tell C F The pockets of the gamblers will soon miss Jesse's money C G7 C And a black eye of the law will soon be well
Repeat #1 F C From now on Nancy Taylor can proudly speak to neighbors G7 And tell them just how Jesse took up with little Jim C F Now Jimmy's got a daddy and Jesse's got a family C G7 C And Franklin County's got a lot more man
