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

Repeat #1
