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
