another site i think or so anyway here you go the
Mississippi squirrel revival by ray stevens
[C]When I was a kid we?d [A7]take a trip, every s[D7]ummer down to Mississip?
To v[F]isit my Grannie and my [G]Auntie Bellu[C]m Whirl.[G7] [C]
Well, I?d run barefoot all day long, climbing trees as free as a song
And then, one day I caught myself a squirrel.
Well, I s[F]tuffed him down in an ol? shoe box, an? [C]punched a couple of holes
in the top
And when [D7]Sunday came along, I snuck him into c[G]hurch.
Well, I?us s[C]ittin? way back in the v[A7]ery last pew, a?s[D7]howin him to my good
buddy Hugh
When that s[F]quirrel got loose and went t[G]otally bezerk!
What h[Am]appened next is hard to tell, some thought it was heaven some
it was hell, but the fact that sumptn?s amoung us was plain to tell
As the choir sand "I Surrender All", the squirrel ran up Harv Newman?s
coveralls; Harv jum[D7]ped to his feet and said "Sumpn?s got a hol? a[G]
The day the s[C]quirrel went bezerk in the [D7]First Self-Righteous Church,
In the [F]sleepy little [G]town of Pasquag[C]ulla.[G7]
It was a fight for survival, that turned up in revival
They were jumpin? pews and singing "Hallejulia".
Well, Harv hit the aisles a dancin? and a screamin?
Some thought he had religion, some thought he had a demon,
But Harv thought he had a weed-eater loose in his "fruit of the looms"
He fell to his knees to plead and beg and the squirrel ran out his
britches leg
Unobserved by the other side of the room.
Well, it ran on down to the Amen pew where sat Sister Berthat Better than
Who?d been watchin? all the commotion with sadistic glee.
Well, you should?a seen the look in here eyes when that squirrel jumped
garters and crossed her thighs
And she jumped to her feet and said "LORD HAVE MERCY ON ME"
As the squirrel made laps inside her dress
She began to cry and then to confess
To sins that?d make a sailor blush with shame.
She told of gossip and church dessention, but the thing that got the most
Is when she talked about her love life and started naming names!
Well, seven deacons and the pastor got saved and twenty-five thousand
got raised and fifty volunteered for missions in the Congo on the spot.
And even without an invitation, here were at least five hundred
and we all got rebaptized wheter we needed it or not.
Now, you?ve heard the Bible story I guess, how God parted the waters so
Moses could pass.
Oh, The miracles God has wroght in this ol? world
But the one I?ll remember to my dying day, is how He put that church on
narrow way
With one hald crazed Mississipi Squirrel.
