shallom y’all lyrics – mark lowry

some people say “aloha”
som people say “bonjour”
others say “hola”
or something like that i’m not sure
i practice and i practice how to say “h*llo” tonight
but this old country-accent is just something i can’t
hide

shalom y’all
hey, howdy, how you’ve been?
its been a while so heres a smile
from all your southern friends
shalom y’all
and you can sing it too
cause its our way, of try’ to say
we’re proud to be with you
shalom y’all

well, i tried to ride a camel
but i brought it to its knees
i tried to climb masada
but its higher than it seems
i went fishing in the dead sea
but i didnt get a bite
so i gave myself a mudmask
and i looking good tonight

shalom y’all
hey, howdy, how you’ve been?
its been a while so heres a smile
from all your southern friends
shalom y’all
and you can sing it too
cause its our way, of try’ to say
we’re proud to be with you
shalom y’all

now buscuits and cream gravy
used to be my favourite dish
but now with b*tter-bagels
i prefer saint peters fish
i thought i was a tuff man
till i try to take a bite
but its awful hard to swallow
when he looks you in the eye

shalom y’all
hey, howdy, how you’ve been?
its been a while so heres a smile
from all your gaither friends
shalom y’all
and you can sing it too
cause its our way, of try’ to say
we’re proud to be with you
shalom y’all

shallom y’all!
