Down the road in my car
A wooden Jesus on my dashboard
Go to work to stay alive
I'm just a sinner tryin' to survive
Yeah we commit all those deadly sins
But I don't worry 'cause I got my friend

I got my wooden Jesus in my car
He's always with me, never too far
Yeah my wooden Jesus forgives me
I'm a sinner that's why I believe
In my wooden Jesus

Wake up in the mornin' sun
On my dresser got another one
Say a prayer to start my day
Maybe the big man will show me the way
A money maker down in east L.A.
Stampin' 'em out, ten thousand a day

I got a wooden Jesus in my car
He's always with me, never too far
Yeah my wooden Jesus he's my friend
I've been a lion layin' down with the lamb

I got my friend, got my soul
Why he forgives me, God only knows
'Cause he's a wooden Jesus
Wooden Jesus yeah, wooden Jesus, oh yeah

Oh Lordy take me on away from here
Take me down the road to salvation
Help me Jesus, try to find my way
Send me a revelation

I gotta wooden Jesus in my car
Got him stittin' on my dashboard
Wooden Jesus shows the way
He keeps me ready for that judgement day
He's my wooden Jesus forgivin' me

I need a savior, so I try to believe
In my wooden Jesus doesn't mind
He always loves me
He's my kind of wooden Jesus
Wooden Jesus yeah, wooden Jesus

Ten thousand, maybe more
Wrapped with string on a cheap old board
Cast iron believe me
$5.95 will buy your reprieve

Wooden Jesus yeah
He's my friend
Show me the way
Keep me ready for that judgement day
Wooden Jesus
