    Song Lyrics / W / Warren Zevon / Jesus Was a Cross Maker Lyrics
    Sweet silver angels over the sea
    Please come down flying low for me

    One time I trusted a stranger
    'Cause I heard his sweet song
    It was gently enticing me
    But there was something wrong
    And when I turned
    He was gone
    Blinding me
    His song remains reminding me
    He's a bandit and a heartbreaker
    My Jesus was a cross maker

    Sweet silver angels over the sea
    Please come down flying low for me

    He wages war with the devil
    With a pistol by His side
    He's always chasing him out of windows
    And He won't give him a place to hide
    But he keeps His door
    Open wide
    Fighting him
    He lights a lamp inviting him
    He's a bandit and a heartbreaker
    My Jesus was a cross maker
    Yeah, Jesus was a cross maker

    (here's a verse Ms. Sill wrote, which Warren leaves out:
    maybe he thought he had enough thunder on this record, already:
    I heard the thunder come rumblin'
    The light never looked so dim
    I see the junction git nearer
    and danger is in the wind
    And either road's lookin' grim

    Hidin' me, I flee, desire dividin' me
    He's a bandit and a heartbreaker.
    Oh, but Jesus was a cross maker
    Yes, Jesus was a cross maker)
