about

a great piece of respectful whimsey from a Catholic heart

written by my acquaintance the late Barry Hennessey and his friend Kevin Byrt. I first heard Sid Limbert's version on Radio Active. Barry didn't like our slower version. Had a hell of a job cutting up bits of the tuba and horn . . . it became a favourite of fans

lyrics

LYRICS

i've got an autographed picture of jesus
i've had it since i was a kid
now i don't know if he really signed it
but my grandfather told me he did

and he signed it right there on the bottom
and he added a personal note
good living, god bless ya from Jesus
i'll be with you wherever you roam

it's just a beautiful picture of jesus
and it hangs on or living room wall
the sad, broken eyes of the saviour
will follow wherever you roam

now i now that it ain't no Renoir
it don't cry no tears or bleed
i'm sure you'll never find it
in no big city art gallery

now i know that someday i'll be with him
and we'll walk through valleys of gold
and i'll remind him of that beautiful picture
that hung on our living room wall

yeh he signed it right there on the bottom
and he added a personal note
good living, god bless ya from Jesus
i'll be with you wherever you roam
