Story Behind The Song

My friend Bobby Nathan was regaling me with tales of his failed marriages, and bemoaning his inability to make them work. It was just too hard.

I told him not to get down on himself, that lots of people find a good marriage to be hard work.

Bobby said, "Hell yes it's hard. Not even Jesus did it!"

Bingo. Song idea.

Then a title, "Jesus Was A Bachelor" flashed in my head.

When the title makes you laugh, you're usually off to a good start.

As the idea rolled around in my brain, I came up with the first verse and its final line, "I'm gonna get my twelve best buds, go drink wine and fish."

After that I was pretty sure I was on to something.

The next two verses came fairly easily, and at that point the song felt finished.

But then events in the news prompted more ideas and two more verses. This is where the song takes an unexpected turn, which leads to the surprise ending.
