Beloved congregation, please open your Hymn Books to Hymn 43

Oh father high in heaven -- smile down upon your son
whose busy with his money games -- his women and his gun.
Oh Jesus save me!
And the unsung Western hero killed an Indian or three
and made his name in Hollywood
to set the white man free.
Oh Jesus save me!
If Jesus saves -- well, He'd better save Himself
from the gory glory seekers who use His name in death.
Oh Jesus save me!
I saw him in the city and on the mountains of the moon --
His cross was rather bloody --
He could hardly roll His stone.
Oh Jesus save me!

No one does a better rock flute than Ian Anderson! BTW, one of the best concerts I have ever seen! Ian was so personable and before each song he would talk about the history to how the song was created. Just loved it!

3. I'd see them again - they should be in the Rock & Roll hall of fame
