Jesus' Brother James - 2014 version

The Cold Stares 2014 Single Song from the album A Cold Wet Night and a Howling Wind


Jesus had a brother named James
James was a name with a last name
No matter how he tried to get ahead
James never raised a man from the dead

Mama tell me why, tell me please
Ain't nobody ever notice me
When you get up to the pearly gates
Don't forget about your brother James

Mountain high and a valley low
They all look for the lord to show
James came and spoke some words
Lazarus laying down undisturbed

Jesus walked upon the scene
My friend is dying, what do you mean
Ooh people, a little faith
Lazarus crawled right from the grave
