Subject: Lyr Add: ISN'T THAT SO? (Jesse Winchester)
The link has words that are different from what Jesse sings (see below). I am very conscious of the words on this song since my demo tape almost got out the door with "his own son's got a reputation for PUTTING water into wine" (what became known as the Jesus invents the white wine spritzer version). I will capitalize the differences.

DidN'T he know what he was doing
WHEN HE PUT eyes in my head
If he HAdn't wantED me watching women
He'd've left my eyeballs dead
Isn't that so
Isn't that so
You've got to go where your heart says go
Isn't that so
DidN'T he know what he was doing
When he divided high and low
You've got to bury the seeds in the GROUND my friend
If you want the thing to grow
[chorus]
NOW line of least resistance
leads me on, LEAD ME ON
LINE OF LEAST RESISTANCE, LEAD ME ON....
DidN'T he know what he was doing
When he made that MAGIC vine
His own son'S got A reputation
of turning water into wine
[chorus] You've got to go where your heart says go
Isn't that so
