The Baptist Sunday School

Cat. #1298 (MFH #900) - As sung by Mrs. Barry May, Cove, Arkansas on July 14, 1967

VERSE 1
Adam was th first man that ever was invented
Lived by himself an' he never was contented
Made out'a mud in th days gone by
Put on th fence for th sun to dry

VERSE 2
Come bucktion, bucktion, everybody come
Join th Baptist Sunday School
An' make yourself at home
Please to take your chawin gum an' razors at th door
You'll hear some Bible stories never heard before

VERSE 3
Next come Eve an' she had t' have -----
She boosted Adam up th tree to pick herself an apple
He brought down two an' he ate one
That was when the trouble was begun

VERSE 4
Join th Baptist Sunday School
An' make your-self at home
Place your chawin gum an' razors at th door
Bible stories you never heerd before
That is th song of the Baptist Sunday School
