Conway Twitty — Who Did They Think He Was lyrics

A child was born in Tupelo
In 1935
I'm grateful for his music
It forever changed my life.

Oh, I loved, "Love Me Tender"
And how that boy could sing
But when he died I wondered why
Millions called him King.

Tell me, who did they think
Who did they think He was?
Who did they think
Who did they think He was?

The whole world bowed and prayed
But it only made me say
Who did they think
Who did they think He was?

--- Instrumental ---

He was born in Massachussetts
In 1917
The second son of an Irishman
Oh, we all loved Kennedy.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/conway-twitty-who-did-they-think-he-was-lyrics.html ]
He was brave and strong and handsome
A helluva a president
But when he died
Millions cried like he was heaven sent.

Tell me who did they think
Who did they think He was?
Who did they think
Who did they think he was?

The whole world bowed and prayed
But it only made me say
Who did they think
Who did they think He was?

--- Instrumental ---

There was a child of heaven
Born in Bethelem
Just a simple carpenter
With worn and callused hands.

Oh, he healed the heart of many
So they nailed him to a tree
With no one left to mourn his death
But the women at his feet.

Crying, Who did they think
Who did they think He was
Who did they think
Who did they think He was?

Who did they think
Who did they think He was?...
