Last Fall we recorded a Christmas song called “Little Baby Jesus” for the Holiday Hootenany CD benefitting the Capuchin Soup Kitchen here in Detroit. We’d like to make the song available for free download again this year. Just click the link below. It’s also available on our myspace page and Facebook profile.
Speaking of Facebook, we know have our band page up and running. The page has a music player, video player, event calendar, and comment wall. To find us on Facebook, click here.
The Little Baby Jesus (mp3)
The Little Baby Jesus
There’s a family on the road headed back to their hometown
The governor signed a law that shut the border down
In the back seat there’s a baby with a carseat for a bed
She’s the little baby Jesus , no place to lay her head
A farmer in a field that his family used to till
It fed five generations and paid their doctor bills
The bank closed on the farm; he might as well be dead
Like the little baby Jesus, no place to lay his head
Christmas is a time to remember, when hope, faith and justice surrendered
Christmas is a time to believe, love is more than you receive
Love is more than you receive
The king got in his head it would be good to start a war
But the war kept gettin’ bigger ’til it came knockin’ at his door
His senators and counselors, well they all turned and fled
Now he’s the little baby Jesus, no place to lay his head
Have a Merry Christmas and a peaceful new year
And don’t forget that a baby can break the land of fear
And when you’re on the road may you find shelter from the storm
We’re all the little baby Jesus, just waiting to be born
The song is also available on the compilation Holiday Hootenany, sales of which benefit Detroit’s Capuchin Soup Kitchen. Find out more here.
