www.raystevens.com The Mississippi Squirrel Revival by Ray Stevens submitted by jhonen Vasquez ok folks none of you probably know this song because you all suck and you have no respect for rednecks like ray stevens anyway, i got these tabs off of someone on another site i think guitartabs.com or tabcrawler.com so anyway here you go the Mississippi squirrel revival by ray stevens C A7 D7 When I was a kid we'd take a trip, every summer down to Mississip' F G C G7 C To visit my Grannie and my Auntie Bellum Whirl. Well, I'd run barefoot all day long, climbing trees as free as a song And then, one day I caught myself a squirrel. F C Well, I stuffed him down in an ol' shoe box, an' punched a couple of holes in the top D7 G And when Sunday came along, I snuck him into church. C A7 D7 Well, I'us sittin' way back in the very last pew, a'showin him to my good buddy Hugh F G When that squirrel got loose and went totally bezerk! Am What happened next is hard to tell, some thought it was heaven some thought 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 D7 G coveralls; Harv jumped to his feet and said "Sumpn's got a hol' a me!" Chorus: C D7 The day the squirrel went bezerk in the First Self-Righteous Church, F G C G7 In the sleepy little town of Pasquagulla. 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 you Who'd been watchin' all the commotion with sadistic glee. Well, you should'a seen the look in here eyes when that squirrel jumped her 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 attention Is when she talked about her love life and started naming names! Chorus Well, seven deacons and the pastor got saved and twenty-five thousand dollars got raised and fifty volunteered for missions in the Congo on the spot. And even without an invitation, here were at least five hundred rededications, 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 the narrow way With one hald crazed Mississipi Squirrel. Chorus
