He Came (but he won't be back)

 
Pinto/Cassady
Well over In the land of Galilee
Where the men of Abraham lived by the sea
They lived by the law of Moses
And accepted it as fact
Well you didn't go covet with your neighbor's wife
You kept the Sabbath and lived a good life
And when you died, that's it, you don't come back

From out of the East a carpenter came (He came but he won't be back)
Jesus of Nazareth was his name (He came but he won't be back)
He walked away  (keep weaving that crown of thorns)
Through the streets of clay
I strawed his way
And I heard him say:
Hey you big rubes, it was just an act (on Calvary Hill)
He died and he rose again, he came but he won't be back.

They found them a rock and they built a church
Had a reformation and began to search
For young drunks and lonely women and
Pagan temples that they could sack
They wrote that promise down in a Book
At the point of a sword lots of  people done took it for the truth
But don't be fooled, he won't be back

So spread the news throughout the land, people
(he came but he won't be back)
Just a little joke that got out of hand, people
(he came but he won't be back)
Get on the phone  (keep weaving that crown of thorns)
Let it be known
That man has blown
And that crown's your own

The dice were round and the deck was stacked
(On Calvary Hill)
He died and he rose again
He came but he won't be back.

Keep weaving that crown of thorns
Keep on weaving that crown of thorns

Well he laughed so hard that his rib cage cracked (on Calvary Hill)
He died and he rose again
He came but he won't be back.
