DOLLY PARTON - Daddy Was an Old Time Preacher Man Lyrics

(Dolly Parton - Dorothy Jo Hope)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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