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,
Hes 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 jacksons wife.

Repeat chorus
