Jesus Christ (Woody Guthrie)
Woody Guthrie had a talent for taking historical events and turning them into thought-provoking songs.
Here, he sings about how Jesus Christ stood up for the poor and downtrodden. Guthrie never had much money, stood up for the working man, and traveled the country spreading his message through his songs.
While he was never associated with a specific religion, you can see why Guthrie felt an affinity with Jesus Christ. (source)
