Christ For President - Woody Guthrie

    Let's have Christ for President.
    Let us have him for our King.
    Cast your vote for the Carpenter
    that you call the Nazarene.

    The only way we can ever beat
    these crooked politician men
    Is to run the money changers out of the temple
    And put the Carpenter in

    O It's Jesus Christ for president
    God above our king
    With a job and a pension for young and old
    We will make hallelujah ring

    Every year we waste enough
    to feed the ones who starve
    We build our civilization up
    and we shoot it down with wars

    But with the Carpenter on the seat
    away up in the capital town
    The USA would be on the way prosperity bound!
