Story Of Parson Joe  
Written and recorded by Tex Morton

C F C
The barroom light shone down one night upon a young lad there
D7 G7
There noisy crowd of miners cried here lad a glass of beer
C F D7 E7
A miner smoke we for a joke all called him Parson Joe
F C A7 D7 G7 C
Don't touch that drink young man I think my story you should know

F C
You wondered why my friends that I have vowed to never drink
D7 G7
My babe and wife I've lost for life all through that cursive drink
C F D7 E7
Night after night a drunken sight I'd staggered through the door
F C A7 D7 G7 C
One night she wrote this bitter note you'll see us never more

F C
That's why young lad it'll make me sad to see you touch that drink
D7 G7
Your mother dear if she were here I wonder what she'd think
C F D7 E7
My mother's dead he sadly said but see her still you may
F C A7 D7 G7 C
This picture sir is one of her before she passed away

F C
And standing by we all heard the cry that came from Parson Joe
D7 G7
This picture son is of the one I lost so long ago
C F D7 E7
You're my son I should have known you have your mother's face
F C A7 D7 G7 C
And now she's gone I can't atone to her for my disgrace

F C
The barroom light shone down so bright and tears bedimmed his eyes
D7 G7
And pity filled the hearts of all to see a strong man cry
C F D7 E7
'Er mother died the boy replied she said she had forgiven
F C A7 D7 G7 C
And she'll be glad I found you dad and we'll meet her up in Heaven
