We all know gospel music and country music go together like peanut butter and jelly. And unfortunately, sometimes artists are criticized for publicly showing their beliefs. It has happened to Carrie Underwood, who didn't back down, and it's also happened to Willie Nelson. Instead of listening to the naysayers, Willie had something else in mind. He performed "Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)" as a tribute to the late Johnny Cash.

"Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)" was most likely composed by African-American slaves in the nineteenth century. The song is known as one of Ghandi's favorite spiritual hymns and has been covered by Johnny Cash, Harry Belafonte, and a few others.

Willie's performance is heartfelt and inspirational. He wears his heart on his sleeve throughout the entire thing, proving to the world how much his faith means to him, while memorializing the legendary Johnny Cash at the same time.

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Oh were you there when they crucified my Lord?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when they nailed Him to the cross?
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
Well, were you there when the stone was rolled away?
Were you there when the stone was rolled away?
(Ohh, sometimes it causes me to tremble)
Tremble
Were you there when the stone was rolled away?
