It Was a hot Sunday mornin', the middle of July.
The choir was a-singin' about the sweet by-and-by.
And everybody was a-swayin', sweating in the heat.
We all bowed our heads down, as the preacher took his seat.
My sister and my brother stood next to my mother in the quiet at the close of the verse.
That's when Daddy cut the big one, at the Hornlake, Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church.

My sister rolled her eyes back,
My brother bit his lip,
My cousin just behind us, whispered "Hey, who let it rip?",
Stuck my face in my shirtsleeve, staired down at my shoes,
Lord you could hear a pin drop, as we stood there in the pew,
Heads were a-turnin', eyes were a-burnin', Momma stuck her nose in her purse,
After Daddy cut the big one, at the Hornlake, Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church.

He cut the big one,
It was a stinker.
Then he broke the silence, with a snicker.
And us kids started laughin', 'till I thought that we was all gonna burst,
After Daddy cut the big one, at the Hornlake, Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church.

He said, "The Devil made me do it", Momma said it was the liverwhurst,
That's why Daddy cut the big one, at the Hornlake, Missssissippi Missionary Baptist Church.
