When Jesus left Birmingham
All the disciples went crazy
When Jesus left Birmingham
All the people went completely nuts
They all busted out on a wild night
Riding high on a golden calf
When Jesus left Birmingham
All the people had themselves a big long laugh

Well my girl, she's a walker
And she can talk herself out of any mess
My girl, she don't pray
But she somehow seems still to be blessed
And when those crazy nights come callin'
Man, she'll dance on the tables like all of the rest
When my girl left Birmingham
She was doing what she thought was best

It's all free on the inside
It's all free on the inside
It's all free on the inside
It's all free on the inside
It's all free on the inside
It's all free on the inside
It's all free on the inside
It's all free on the inside
Inside, gotta get inside, inside

I see myself with a Rosary
I'm in a garden and I'm talking to myself
I ain't sayin' much worth repeating
Just askin' for forgiveness and all of his best
When those crazy nights come callin'
Man, I'm just as human as I can be
When Jesus left Birmingham, He left it there for you and me
When Jesus left Birmingham, He left it there for you and me

So let it rock, let it roll
Let your Bible belt come and save my soul
Let it rock, let it roll
Let your Bible belt come and save my soul

Let it rock, let it roll
Let your Bible belt come and save my soul
Let it rock, let it roll
Let your Bible belt come and save my soul

Let it rock, let it roll
Let your Bible belt come and save my soul
Let it rock, let it roll
Let your Bible belt come and save my soul
...
