greenbelt 07 two – If Jesus Drove A Motorhome

At Greenbelt this year we hired a motorhome to drive down, and live in. also to drive bak. we didn’t know which one we had booked. Frankly when we got it it was massive. nice but massive. (auto trail cheyenne 840s with the double rear wheel chassis). I felt kinda bad about how big it was. Fortunately Jim White as part of a great album, wrote a song about what would happen if Jesus drove a motorhome.

If Jesus Drove A Motorhome” By Jim White
from the album “Drill A Hole In That Substrate And Tell Me What You See

If Jesus drove a motor home,
I wonder would he
drive pedal to the metal,
or real slow? Checking out the stereo.
Cassette playing Bob Dylan,
motivation tapes.
Tricked up Winnebago,
with the tie-dye drapes.

If Jesus drove a motor home…
If Jesus drove a motor home…

If Jesus drove a motor home,
and he come to your town,
would you try to talk to him?
Would you follow him around?
Honking horns at the drive thru.
Double-parking at the mall.
Midnight at the Waffle House — Jesus eating eggs with ya’ll.

If Jesus drove a motor home…
If Jesus drove a motor home…

Buddha on a motorcycle, Mohammed in a train.
Here come Jesus in the passing lane…
but everybody smile, ‘cause everybody’s grooving.
Ain’t nothing like the feeling of moving with a bona fide motorized savior.

Now if we all drove motor homes,
well maybe in the end,
with no country to die for,
we could just be friends.
One world as our highway.
Ain’t no yours or my way.
We’d be cool wherever we roam — if Jesus drove a motor home.
