A Bible And A Belt 
Recorded by Joey+Rory
Album: His And Hers (2012)

(Capo on 1)

Intro.:  |(C) |(C) |(F) |(F) | x 2

They were (C)both made of leather, both (F)black and frayed and worn
I was (C)brought up to respect them since the (G)day that I was born
(C)One came here from England, it's been (F) handed down for years
The (Am)other one was (G)ordered from a (F)catalogue at (C)Sears

(C)One my mama read to me that I was (F)well into my teens
And I (C)thought all the other one was for was to (G)hold up daddy's jeans
Till I (C)told a lie and learned, it had an-(F)other purpose too
One be-(Am)hind the shed, my (G)daddy said, "This will (F)hurt me more than you" (C)

(Chorus)
'Cause one (F)had my daddy's name on it, the other said King (C)James
With (G)love they taught us lessons, but we (F)feared them (G)both the same (C)
(F)One led us to heaven and the (C)other left a (F)welt
But those (Am)were the days when (G)kids were raised (F) with a (G)bible and a belt |(C) |(C) |(F) |(F)

I re-(C)member when I was twelve, I stole a (F)dime store comic book
And how (C)mama read what the scr i pture said to (G)take back what I took
When (C)I refused, my daddy grabbed my (F)arm and said "Come on"
I needed (Am)more, he knew than (G)just Matthew, (F)Mark, Luke and John (C)

Well, some-(C)times they made me cry, sometimes they (F)made me fightin' mad
And I'd wish (C)I'd been raised without them like some (G)other children had
But (C)now I'm grown with kids of my own and I (F)know just how they felt
You know, it (Am)seems to me what the (G)world still needs is a (F)bible and a belt (C)

(Chorus)
'Cause one (F)had my daddy's name on it, the other said King (C)James
With (G)love they taught us lessons, we (F)feared them (G)both the same (C)
(F)One led us to heaven and the (C)other hurt like (F)hell
Those (Am)were the days when (G)kids were raised (F) with a (G)bible and a belt

Outro.:  |(C) |(C) |(F)(G) A |(G)bible --- and a belt |(C) |(C) |(F) |(F) |(C) |(C) |(F) |(G) |(C) -----

I tried to correct some of the lyrics since I live here in Nashville, TN with Joey + Rory but I don't see the submission yet. Can I get some help on how to edit the lyrics without submitting a new version?

Kinda new at this although I've used a lot of the songs, I've never edited so, with a little help, I can put the right lyrics in The Bible and the Belt. My actual email is: eddy.messick@comcast.net.
