Last updated: 10/14/2009 11:00:00 AM

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
