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
