Drop Kick Me Jesus

Standard

A football kicker for the Baltimore Ravens mentioned this song on a 60 minutes interview… Dropkick me Jesus…   Too fabulous…   Love the truth in these lyrics:  I’ve got the will, Lord, if you’ve got the toe.

Not only do I love the visual these lyrics bring – it’s the old-tyme country singing style that defined country music when I was a kid.  It’s one of those ballads that says: This is where I am in life. Not the blues, but the TRUES. Jesus comes to meet us where we are. 

The truth is that in life’s game plan, we would best realize to know and have God handling us, the ball. Jesus came to the bottom of the fumble pile and He has recovered us.

A dropkick means that the game still goes on. We have the best player coach in Jesus. Let’s not play life, let’s live it!    And hear all those stadium saints cheer!

Amen 


Dropkick me, Jesus  By Bobby Bare

Dropkick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life

End over end, neither left, nor the right

Straight through the heart of them righteous uprights

Dropkick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life

Make me, oh, make me, Lord, more than I am

Make a piece in your master game plan

Free from the earthly tempestion below

I’ve got the will, Lord, if you’ve got the toe

Dropkick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life

End over end, neither left, nor the right

Straight through the heart of them righteous uprights

Dropkick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life

Bring on the brothers who’ve gone on before

And all of the sisters who’ve knocked at your door

All the departed, dear loved ones of mine

And stick ’em up front in the offensive line

A lowly benchwarmer I’m contented to be.

Until the time that you have need of me

The flash on the big scoreboard shines from all high

The big super bowl up in the sky

Dropkick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life

End over end, neither left, nor the right

Straight through the heart of them righteous uprights

Dropkick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life

End over end, neither left, nor the right
