writer, hank williams

(e) let me tell you ’bout a preacher,
with a cane and a long tailed coat, (e7)
let me (a) tell you ’bout a preacher,
with a cane and a long tailed (e) coat,
but he (b7) does all his preachin’,
with his eyes on the women – (e) folk.

chorus

(e) send him back, send him back, where he (e7) was be – (a) fore,
he’s a (b7) two-faced man, and we don’t want him here no (e) more.

well he preached about gamblin’, said it’s a sin and it’s a shame,
yes he preached about gamblin’, said it’s a sin and it’s a shame,
but when i met him in a alley, he won my watch and chain.

repeat chorus

well he preached about liquor, said leave the stuff alone,
yes he preached about liquor, said leave the stuff alone,
but then i saw a deacon, totin’ the preacher home.

repeat chorus

well he preached about wedlock, the finest thing in life,
yes he preached about wedlock, the finest thing in life,
but then i saw the preacher, kissin’ brother jackson’s wife.

repeat chorus
