         800 LB JESUS    Sawyer Brown
D                          G   
I saw a garage sale pulled up in the yard
          D                      A
Found a statue of Jesus It was eight feet tall
     D                       G
He held out his arms and he seemed all alone
       D                  Em         A 
So I loaded him up and I drove him home
D                       G
Out by my driveway he looks down the street
       D 
Long hand sandels made of rebar and concrete
      D                      G    
I painted him white with a long purple robe
        D                     Em      A
He's a rock of the ages on a gravel road
CHORUS:
         D                    G             Em            A   D D A
He's an eight hundred pound Jesus Standing taller than a tree
         D                   G              A              D   D G A D 
He's an eight hundred pound Jesus a bigger man than you or me


D                                G
I thought losing my job was the end of the world
         D                    A  
Till my best pal ran off with my best girl
    D                 G 
I felt suicidal with no real friends
       D                    Em         A
So I walked outside with a rope in my hands
D                             G
Out by that statue there's a big oak tree
       D                            A
So I stood on his shoulders and I counted to three
D                          G
I had every intention of buying the farm
             D                     Em      A 
But when I jumped off he caught me in his arms
Go to chorus
D                        G
I wanted to return the favor to him
D                          A
Cause I never had a more solid friend
D                                G
So I planted some flowers all around his feet
        D                     Em      A 
And I bought him a flock of ceramic sheep  go to chorus, ending
ENDING:
               A              D   D G A D 
He's a bigger man than you or me.
