I was wondering what the origin of this gospel song is:

Can't nobody do me like like Jesus.
Can't nobody do me like like the Lord.
Can't nobody do me like like Jesus.
He's my friend.

Seems like it's traditional but can't find any old versions,

TY

Richie

Hmmm. Can't find much, either, richie. I did find a nice YouTube recording by Rev. James Cleveland (1931-1991). Comments say this recording was from the 1970s.

Here's a version attributed to Andrae Crouch (1982), but I can't believe that's the earliest version. Click here for a YouTube recording of an Andrae Crouch recording of the song from the late 1970s. I suppose it's possible that Crouch is the author - many of his compositions have a timelessness and simplicity that make them seem traditional. The Harry Fox Agency Songfile Website lists a version of this song by Crouch, but another as traditional. So, we're back to square one.

CAN'T NOBODY DO ME LIKE JESUS
(attributed to Andrae Crouch)

Chorus:
Can't nobody do me like Jesus
Can't nobody do me like the Lord
Can't nobody do me like Jesus
He's my friend
(repeat)

He healed my body, then he told me to run on (3x),
He's my friend

Chorus

He saved my soul, put my name on the roll (3x),
He's my friend

He filled me with the Holy Ghost, then he told me to run on (3x),
He's my friend

He's my friend, my friend.
I know that He's my friend, my friend

Chorus x2

I said He's my friend
I'm so glad He's my friend
He's my friend

TY Joe,

Like so many African-American gospel songs it was probably picked up and passed around in the 1970s. Andrae Crouch's version seems like an arrangement.
