"They Hung Him on a Cross (Demo)" as written by and Huddie Ledbetter....
They hung him on the cross
They hung him on the cross
They hung him on the cross
For me
One day when I was lost
They hung him on the cross
They hung him on the cross for me
They whooped him up the hill
They whooped him up the hill
They whooped him up the hill
For me
One day when I was lost
They hung him on the cross
They whooped him up the hill for me
He never said among them word
They never said among them word
They never said among them word
For me
One day when I was lost
They hung him on the cross
They hung him on the cross
For me
They bit him in the side
They bit him in the side
They bit him in the side
For me
One day when I was lost
They hung him on the cross
They hung him on the cross for me
He hung his head and died
He hung his head and died
He hung his head and died
For me
One day when I was lost
They hung him on the cross
They hung him on the cross
For me

    General CommentCatchy tune. It makes me think about how horrible people can be, and how that wonderful man went through all that so we can be saved from eternal death.

    General CommentIt's about Kurt's alienation from his sudden celebrity. He feels like he's becoming lost and the public is hanging him on a cross.

    General CommentYeah tree finger this has nothing to do with Kurt Cobain. I find it very interesting on all of the Nirvana songs on here that somebody will chime in with 'It's about how Kurt hated being a celebrity' EVERY SONG??!. The man is generally considered a genious by those who listen to him and i have a problem with a genious being so limited in his choice of subject matter. Otherwise great little song gets stuck in my head
