[Intro]
G2 G2 G2
      Yea, here come the preacher!

[Verse 1]
G                                       C             G
The preacher went out a huntin', it was on one Sunday morn'
                                           A7      D7
It was against his religion, but he took a shotgun along
G                                              C                G
He got himself a mess o' mighty fine quail and one old scraggly hare
                       E7                    A7        D7      G
And on the way home he crossed the path of a great big grizzly bear

[Verse 2]
G2
Well the bear got down lookin' ready to charge
G2
The preacher never seen nothin' quite that large
G2
They looked each other right smack in the eye
G2
Didn't take that preacher long to say bye
G2
The preacher, he run till he spotted a tree
G2
He said, "Up in that tree's where I oughta be"
G2
By the time that bear made a grab for him
G2
The preacher was a sittin' on top a that limb
G2
Scared to death, he turned about
G2
He looked to the sky and began to shout

[Chorus]
G                                        C                    G
"Hey lord, you delivered Daniel from the bottom of the lion's den
                             A7                     D7
You delivered Jonah from the belly of the whale and then
G
The Hebrew children from the fiery furnace
C                    G
So the good books do declare
G                      E7
Hey lord, if you can't help me,
             A7         D7       G
For goodness sake don't help that bear"

[Verse 3]
G2
Yea, look out preacher!
G                                                C                      G
Well, about that time the limb broke off and the preacher came tumblin' down
                                              A7                 D7
Had a straight razor out of his pocket by the time he lit on the ground
G                                                    C                   G
He landed on his feet right in front a that bear and Lord, what an awful fight
                                  E7                      A7          D7      G
The preacher and the bear and the razor and the hair just flyin' from left to right

[Verse 4]
G2
Well first they was up and then they was down
G2
The preacher the bear runnin' round an' round
G2
The bear he roared, and the the preacher he groaned
G2
Havin' a tough time holdin' his own!
G2
He said, "Lord if I get out a here alive
G2
Then to the good book I'll abide
G2
No more huntin' on the Sabbath day
G2
Come Sunday I'm headin' to the church to pray"
G2
Up to the heavens the preacher glanced
G2
He said, "Lord won't you give me just one more chance"
G2
So the preacher got away, he looked around
G2
Seen a tree where he'd be safe and sound
G2
Jumped on a limb, turned about
G2
Looked to the sky and began to shout

[Chorus]
G                                        C                    G
"Hey lord, you delivered Daniel from the bottom of the lion's den
                             A7                     D7
You delivered Jonah from the belly of the whale and then
G
The Hebrew children from the fiery furnace
C                    G
So the good books do declare
     G                 E7
Hey lord, if you can't help me,
             A7         D7        G
For goodness sake don't help that bear"
