We Crucified Our Jesus

Lefty Frizzell

March 31, 1928 – July 19, 1975

From Matthew 27

When he was set down on the judgment seat,
his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing
to do with that just man: for I have suffered
many things this day in a dream because of him.

The governor answered and said unto them,
Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you?
They said, Barabbas.

Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with
Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him,
Let him be crucified.

William Orville Frizzell, known as Lefty Frizzell (March 31, 1928 – July 19, 1975), was an American country music singer-songwriter and honky-tonk singer. A vocalist who set the style of singing "the country way" for the generations that followed, Frizzell became one of the most successful and influential artists of country music throughout his career.

He gained prominence in 1950 after two major hits, and throughout the decade was a very popular country performer. He smoothed out the rough edges of a honky tonk song by sounding out syllables longer and singing longer. Because of this, his music become much more mainstream without losing its honky-tonk attitude and persona.
