Joey & Rory - A Bible And A Belt

(Capo on 1)

Intro.:  |(C) |(C) |(F) |(F) | x 2
          C                          F
They were both made of leather, both black and frayed and worn
      C                                    G 
I was brought up to respect them since the day that I was born
C                                     F
One came here from England, it's been handed down for years
    Am            G              F            C 
The other one was ordered from a catalogue at Sears

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

(Chorus)

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

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

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

(Chorus)

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

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