  • Sometimes I've had too much to drink
    Get all stoned and play some Hank
    I guess that's just the way I am
    And I love the man from Galilee
    Because he died for you and me
    I met them both in Dixieland

    'Cause I've got Jesus and Bocephus
    They both help me to live my life
    I went from Jim Beam, to my bible
    With Jesus and Bocephus, right there by my side

    When the water all turned into wine
    I lost my mind for a time
    I felt them both holding my hand
    And looking through these bloodshot eyes
    Praise The Lord I saw the light
    And two sets of footprints in the sand

    'Cause I've got Jesus and Bocephus
    They both help me to live my life
    I went from Jim Beam, to my bible
    With Jesus and Bocephus, right there by my side

    And I was cashing in, I was casting stones
    I was lost in sin I was on my own
    But now I don't feel alone
    'Cause I've got Jesus and Bocephus
    They both help me to live my life
    I went from Jim Beam, to my bible
    With Jesus and Bocephus, right here by my side
    With Jesus and Bocephus, right here, right here until the day I die
