Preachin up a storm
Lyrics by Roger Murrah and Scott Anders


There was a crowd gathered down by the river

Where me and Benny Thompson used to play

I wondered if they had enough water

to wash ol' Lester Harpers sins away

I can hear Ms. Ida whisper...he's too lost to save


They was singing, it was raining it was frightening

somethings are hard to understand when you're eight

I can still hear the thunder and see the lightening

when preacher Hayes raised his hands to pray

I could feel my body tremble, cause I was so afraid



They were down (they were down)... by the river

on that Lincoln county shore

singing Peace in the valley

and preaching up a storm



I was there but I could barely hear the sermon

I was scared and didn't dare to get up close

I could hear him tell that something was a burning

and then he shouted something about a ghost

and when they walked out in the water,

sister Harper hollered "Please don't let him go".



They were down (they were down)... by the river

on that Lincoln county shore

singing Peace in the valley

and preaching up a storm
