Well, this gets my vote.

From Keith Urban, but written by Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne:

“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16″

Key lyric:

“I spent a lot of years runnin’ from believing / Looking for other ways to try to save my soul / The longer I live the more I see it / There’s only one way home.”

As my blog neighbor Tony Rossi pointed out, Keith Urban is Catholic.Urban sings here that “I learned everything I needed to know from John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16…”

Check it out.
