How my mother would shake like a stone
When the Rev. John Miller came comin round to call

Mommy n Daddy sold what they had to save the congregation
If I could go away down south I'd meet a better man
I don't want no IOU's they ain't no consolation

Saw my mommy and daddy worked to the bone
Saw my mommy and daddy worked to the bone
Saw my mommy and daddy worked to the bone
Saw my mommy and daddy pray to you Lord

As daddy lay in the parlour
I prayed for his soul
Now frail and thinner
From working to the bone

Mommy and Daddy sold what they had to save the congregation
If I could go a way down south I'd meet a better man
I don't want no IOU's they ain't no consolation

Saw my mommy and daddy worked to the bone
Saw my mommy and daddy worked to the bone
Saw my mommy and daddy worked to the bone
Saw my mommy and daddy prayin to you Lord
