Jesus Came to the County Fair by Vic Zarley

He wasn’t scheduled to arrive
But word soon got around
Jesus Christ was coming
To the outskirts of this town
It seems that little gathering
Of county people there
Had an extra visitor
Named Jesus at that fair

There’s excitement in the air
‘Cause Jesus came to the county fair
People asked, “Was that Him there?”
Yes, Jesus came to the county fair

He wandered through the house of mirrors
He knew how it was done
Sometimes when we are caught up
In illusion, it’s for fun
He said, “Your life’s a house of mirrors
And it’s up to you”
Jesus smiled at everyone
And said, “I’ll lead you through” (chorus)

He rode the roller coaster
But you know He didn’t scream
He said, “The roller coaster is, to me,
Much like a dream
Up and down the same old tracks
‘Round and round it goes
Follow me and I’ll show you
Some very fruitful roads” (chorus)

He said He’d like to hear some songs
As long as He was there
We checked to see, then, who was playing
At this county fair
Jesus walked on over
And He sat down in the stands
And listened to a whole set of a rock and country band (no chorus)

And then the sky began to flash
And thunder rocked our ears
He said, “I guess it’s time to go
I had a good time here”
The next thing I remember
He was floating up the air
Waving bye to all of us
At that county fair (chorus twice with the following ending lines: )

Jesus came to the county fair
I’m so glad that I was there
