It's called Plastic Jesus. Paul Newman sang this one in "Cool Hand Luke". He learned a few chords on the banjo just to play it.

Here's lots of lyrics for it

A snippet I heard once:

. . . I don't worry 'bout traffic scrimmage
As long as I've got my graven image
Ridin' on the dashboard of my car. . . .

And then there was the guy back in the '70s who saw the same slogan-festooned car in Berkeley over and over again who came up with:

I don't need no Red Book, now
'Cause I got my Chairman Mao
Standin' on the dashboard of my '68 Chevelle

et cetera (there's a lot more)

Sung with great gusto,usually when they are in their cups,by that well known formation drinking team(Bernard Wrigley's description,not mine)
The Wrigley Head Morris Men from Failsworth.

Somewhere, in my archives, I have a number of old copies of "Sing Out," to which many of us old folkies once subscribed. One of them has the lyrics to "Plastic Jesus" included. I gather that this song, whatever it started out to be, enventually became a compilation of verses submitted by many writers.

Plastic Jesus is on one of the CDs in The Best of Broadside 1962-88; originally recorded by Ernie Marrs and the Marrs Family, and was written by Ed Rush and George Cromarty, two members of the Goldcoast Singers, based upon an African-American camp meeting song.
