    Saints and sinners, come one, come all
    Have a little revival
    Losers, winners, answer my call
    Cause right now the tent's up
    Really it is
    The word's out
    Truly it is
    An' has been since the dawn
    Hear me tell y'
    The call's out
    Really it is
    An' we're 'bout
    Tendin' t' biz
    To git this meetin' on,hear me tellin' you
    Brothers' n' sisters who want to repent
    That's right
    You'll find what you been lookin' for
    Right here in this tent
    Lend an ear and you'll see
    Cause when it comes t' needin' savin'
    Ain' nobody knows it better than me
    I was so low that I know
    That only a miracle like this
    Is the only way t' heavenly bliss
    It's really the truth, lawdy, I know it
    I know it 'cause I been taken through it
    Now the spirits in me an' allowed the Lord
    T' win me, I can testify to it
    Sweet sweet the angel's song
    Sweet the feelin' I been searchin' for
    For ever so long
    I never again imagine livin' life
    Like I was livin' when I lived wrong
    Get ready
    Here they come the choir's all set
    Be steady
    See the people fillin' them pews
    Be willin'
    To announce without a regret
    It's thrillin' !
    Tell the world the wonderful news
    Folks' re troopin' in from farther 'n' near
    F' news that they can hardly wait to hear
    They're nearly starved cause they're waitin'
    For food for the soul, yeah
    Starved cause they're waitin' for
    What will not grow old
    Preacher's openin' up the book
    He gonna pause awhile an' take a look
    'N' then he'll start tellin' everyone
    Just how t' do, yeah
    Sister Emmy Lou done gone t' shoutin'
    An' jumpin' cause she feels the spirit
    The congregation's stompin' its feet
    An' everybody's movin' outta their seat
    They really gonna get this meetin' on
    An' praise the Lord until the dawn
    Yeah--hear that preacher spread the word
    Cause it's the greatest word
    You've ever heard
    When he says
    "I'm callin' sinners right now you hear
    I'm callin' sinners right to me
    When ol' Satan grabs your soul
    It takes the Lord's true word to break his hold
    So I say you got to listen mostly to me
    You got to listen closely"
    Don't let the devil catch y' nappin'
    Gotta keep the vigil every minute
    Or the devil gonna surely git you
    "Watch your step 'n' how you act
    Mister Scratch is here, an' that's a fact
    If anyone can stop him, I can
    That's why I'm the preacher man"
    We hear the word
    We hear your voice
    We know there really isn't any other choice
    Head f' heaven t' day
    We're on the gospel train
    We can show you the way
    Relieve all strain
    Leave your cares and your woes
    Heaven knows
    Y' dodge that devil in his fine fancy clothes yes!
    Come git aboard
    We still got space
    Hear the word of the Lord
    We saved your place
    Save your soul while y' can
    Sinner man
    Git on as fast as you can
    You've heard the sermon sublime
    Down south camp meetin' time!
