"Jesus and Bocephus" as written by and J Orr Robert Ritchie....
Sometimes I’ve had too much to drink
Get all stoned and play some Hank
I guess that’s just the way I am
And I love the man from Galilee
Because he died for you and me
I met them both in Dixieland

Cuz I’ve got Jesus and Bocephus
They both help me to live my life
I went from Jim Beam, to my bible
With Jesus and Bocephus, right there by my side

When the water all turned into wine
I lost my mind for a time
I felt them both holding my hand
Looking through these bloodshot eyes
Praise The Lord I saw the light
And two sets of footprints in the sand

Cuz I’ve got Jesus and Bocephus
They both help me to live my life
I went from Jim Beam, to my bible
With Jesus and Bocephus, right there by my side

I was cashing in, I was casting stones
I was lost in sin I was on my own
But now I don’t feel alone
Cuz I’ve got Jesus and Bocephus
They both help me to live my life
I went from Jim Beam, to my bible
With Jesus and Bocephus, right here by my side
With Jesus and Bocephus, right here until the day I die

Jesus and Bocephus

    General CommentHank Williams Sr. started calling his son Bocephus after watching Grand Ole Opry comedian Rod Brasfield use a puppet named Bocephus in his comedy act. Some reports say that Hank Williams Sr. thought that little Hank Williams Jr. looked like the puppet and the name just stuck. By the way, it was also Hank Williams Sr. who gave Little Jimmy Dickens his nickname of ‘Tater,’ based on Jimmy’s hit ‘Take An Old Cold Tater And Wait.’

    Hank Williams Sr. died at the age of 29 (January 1, 1953), leaving behind a very young Hank Jr. who was born on May 26, 1949.
