ddw in windsor Lyr Req: Mississippi Squirrel Revival (Ray Stevens (13) RE: Song: Squirrel Loose in Baptist Church 25 Apr 99

Actually, I think my post above might be wrong on one point. There are parts of the song that are sung (the chorus), but the tune is really simple.

I was reading through the lyrics and I think there are a few minor "misheard" phrases there.

In the second line my hearing is that it's "visit my granny in her ante-bellum world."

Near the end of the verse the line "plain to tell" should be "plain to see" -- it has to rhyme with "me" at the end.

and the "First Sub-Baptist Church," at least on my version, is "First Self-Rightous Church."

Cheers, ddw
