There's a light on yonder mountain And it's callin' me to shine There's a girl over by the water fountain And she's askin' to be mine And Jesus is standing in the doorway In a buckskin jacket, boots and spurs so fine Says, "We need you, son, tonight up in Dodge City 'Cause there's just too many outlaws tryin' to work the same line" Now if Jesus was a sheriff and I were a priest If my lady was an heiress and my Mama was a thief If Papa rode shotgun on the Fargo line There's still too many bad boys tryin' to work the same line Well, sweet Virgin Mary runs the Holy Grail Saloon Well, for a nickel she'll give you whiskey And a personally blessed balloon And the Holy Ghost is the host with the most And he runs the burlesque show Where they let you in for free and they hit you when you go Mary serving Mass on Sunday and she sells her body on Monday To the bootlegger who paid the highest price He don't know he got stuck with a loser, she's stone junkie What's more, she's a user, she's only been made once or twice By some kind of magic If Jesus was a sheriff and I was a priest If my lady was an heiress and my Mama was a thief If Papa rode shotgun on the Fargo line There's still too many outlaws tryin' to work the same line Well, things ain't been the same in Heaven
