Hank Williams TWO FACED PREACHER Lyrics

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

Ithink that the 22 preachers that brought up the petion against the song are also men of the cloth that Hank was writing about,and if they belive that not allowing Hank to sing the song any more will hide their dirt,then they are so wrong,as they can't hide from God Almighty as He sees and hears everything and there will be a judgement day for them as well as the rest of us and we can't play church to get there nor work our way there, But by the blood of Jesus and being cleansed by the blood and believing in his name is our only ticket to Heaven.I just wish that Hank was still here for me to thank him for writing the song,but I can still give God the praise for giving Hank the words to write and the boldness to sing it,We all need to get some of that holy boldness in our lives too,Thank you for listening.May God Bless, Nancy L.Sparks
