Preacher's Blues

This song is by Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe McCoy and appears on the album Vol. 2 Early Recordings (1967).

Some folks say a preacher won't steal
I caught three in my cornfield
One had a yeller, one had a brown
Looked like the middle one was getting down
Some folks say that a preacher won't steal
But evil do my stealin' and I get regular meals

I went to my house 'bout half past ten
Looked on my bed where that preacher had been
Now some folks say that a preacher won't steal
But evil do my stealin' and I get regular meals

He will eat your chicken, he will eat your pie
He will eat your wife out on the sly
Now some folks say that a preacher won't steal
But evil do my stealin' and I get regular meals

I've been tryin' so hard, can't to save my life
To keep that preacher from my wife
Now some folks say that a preacher won't steal
But evil do my stealin' and I get regular meals

I went out last night, came in late
I found out why he'd made his date
Now some folks say that a preacher won't steal
But evil do my stealin' and I get regular meals

I done told you once, done told you twice
Keep food at preacher, be done lost your wife
Now some folks say that a preacher won't steal
But evil do my stealin' and I get regular meals
