The Little Lady Preacher Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
C F C Oh the little lady preacher from the Limestone Church G7 I'll never forget her I guess C F C She preached each Sunday morning on the local radio G7 C With a big black Bible and a snow white dress
F C She was nineteen years of age and was developed to a fault G7 But I will admit she knew the Bible well F C A little white lace hankie marked the text that she would use G7 C She’d breathe into that microphone and send us all to hell
F C She had a guitar picker by the name of Luther Short G7 A hairy legged soul lost out in sin C F C She would turn and smile at Luther when the program would commence G7 C With a voice as sweet as angels' she would break out in a hymn
F C I was picking for her too with what we called the doghouse bass G7 I clung to every word that passed her lips F C She was down on booze and cigarettes and high on days to come G7 C And she'd punctuate the prophecy with movements of her hips
F C The Lord knows how I loved her he was there each time she preached G7 But old Luther took her home each Sunday morn C F C Looking back I still recall the way it hurt my tender pride G7 C I longed to be a hero but they're made not born
F C Sometimes old Luther showed up at the studio half tight G7 And smoking was a thing he liked to do F C She never said a word to him but said a prayer for me G7 C I told her in a way that I've been praying for her too
F C One Sunday her old man showed up and said that she was gone G7 Said she and brother Luther had a call C F C I can see me standing in that studio that day G7 C I had to face the heartbreak unemployment and all
F C I don't know where they are cause I ain't seen them people since G7 Lord if I judge 'em let me give 'em lots of room F C I know Luther Short and he's a hard old boy to change G7 C And I've often sat and wondered who it was converted whom
