Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man
Porter Wagoner And Dolly Parton

Chorus
C
Daddy was an old time preacher man
                                            G7
He preached the word of God throughout the land
       F                                  C
He praeached so plain a child could understand
                  G7               C 
Yes daddy was an old time preacher man

C
He told the people of the need to pray
                                         G7
He talked about God's wrath on Judgement Day
     F                            C
He preached about that great eternity
             G7                                  C
He preached hell so hot that you could feel the heat

C
Daddy was an old time preacher man
                              G7   
And Leona would get up to testify
          C                      G7
As we'd sing in the sweet by and by
           C              F               Bb      
Then we'd sing I'm on my way to Canaan's Land
      C           G7                C
Yes daddy was an old time preacher man

C
Revivals and camps meetin's with four weeks
                                        G7 
Folks came from all around to hear him preach
       F                              C 
Daddy said if one is saved it's worth it all
          G7                                C
But the aisles were always filled to altar call

Repeat Chorus
C
Daddy worked for God but asked no pay
                                   G7
For he believed that God provides away
     F                        C 
We never had a lot but we got by
              G7                               C
I guess it's cause the Lord was on my daddy's side

 C
Yes daddy was an old time preacher man
                    G7           F                       C  
In the sweet by and by we shall meet on that beautiful shore
C                          F         C           G7                C
I'm on my way to Canaan's Land yes daddy was an old time preacher man
                    G7           F                       C 
In the sweet by and by we shall meet on that beautiful shore
                            F        C           G7                C
I'm on my way to Canaan's Land yes daddy was an old time preacher man
