'A Little More Like Me (The Crucifixion)'

Downloaded a Kenny Rogers CD last night while hunting the Mickey Newbury song I wrote about earlier in the week. This has to be the most unusual take on this story I've ever heard.

Thought I'd share...

A Little More Like Me (The Crucifixion)

It was an April night and I was right
Then out on the town
The show was at the Palace
So we all went on down.

We all had a ball as I recall
But now it seems absurd
As the madness raged upon the stage
He didn't say a word.

He was a little weird and we all feared
He wasn't one of us
He didn't drink, he didn't smoke
And he didn't even cuss.

You'd see him now and then
With a bunch of men hanging 'round the sea
And I'm sure I would have liked him more
If he were a little more like me.

It was a spring-ish day
The clouds were gray
Looked like it might rain
We thought about the night before
And I was so ashamed.

When I heard what they had done to him
Stranger I had known
But as drunk as we all got last night
It's a wonder we got home.

He was a little weird and we all feared
He wasn't one of us
He didn't drink, he didn't smoke
And he didn't even cuss.

You'd see him now and then
With a bunch of men hanging 'round the sea
And I'm sure I would have liked him more
If he were a little more like me...
