Lyrics

I remember your old Camaro

It was loud and proud and fast as an arrow

You’d drive up for dates cussin your broken door

I’d shimmy through your window…my daddy would pace the floor

 

I was seventeen and a little bit scared to death

Of splendor in the grass and cigarettes on your breath

Of kissing in the back seat and going straight to hell

Till another fellow came along and broke your spell

 

I went and left you for Jesus

It seemed like the right thing to do                                                   

I went and left you for Jesus

But I always had more fun with you

 

Jesus didn’t like to drink Jesus didn’t like to dance

He never stayed out too late and he wasn’t big on romance

Least that’s what the preacher said when you took me to the senior prom

But you brought me home early on account of the devil and my mom

 

I went and left you for Jesus

It seemed like the right thing to do

I went and left you for Jesus

But I always had more fun with you

 

I’m sorry for the bible verses I shoved down your throat

I’m sorry for the sound that your heart made when it broke

 

Cause I went and left you for Jesus

It seemed like the right thing to do

I went and left you for Jesus

But I always had more fun with you
