    Lyrics

    The preacher went out a huntin', it was on one Sunday morn'
    It was against his religion, but he took a shotgun along
    He got himself a mess o' mighty fine quail and one old scraggly hare
    And on the way home he crossed the path of a great big grizzly bear
    Well the bear got down lookin' ready to charge
    The preacher never seen nothin' quite that large
    They looked each other right smack in the eye
    Didn't take that preacher long to say bye

    The preacher, he run till he spotted a tree
    He said, "Up in that tree's where I oughta be"
    By the time that bear made a grab for him
    The preacher was a sittin' on top a that limb
    Scared to death, he turned about
    He looked to the sky and began to shout

    "Hey lord, you delivered Daniel from the bottom of the lion's den
    You delivered Jonah from the belly of the whale and then
    The Hebrew children from the fiery furnace
    So the good books do declare
    Hey lord, if you can't help me,
    For goodness sake don't help that bear"

    Yea, look out preacher!

    Well, about that time the limb broke off
    And the preacher came tumblin' down
    Had a straight razor out of his pocket
    By the time he lit on the ground
    He landed on his feet right in front a that bear
    And Lord, what an awful fight
    The preacher and the bear and the razor and the hair
    Flyin' from left to right

    Well first they was up and then they was down
    The preacher and the bear runnin' round an' round
    The bear he roared, and the the preacher he groaned
    He was havin' a tough time holdin' his own!
    He said, "Lord if I get out a here alive
    To the good book I'll abide
    No more huntin' on the Sabbath day
    Come Sunday I'm headin' to the church to pray"

    Up to the heavens the preacher glanced
    He said, "Lord won't you give me just one more chance"
    So the preacher got away, he looked around
    Seen a tree where he'd be safe and sound
    Jumped on a limb, turned about
    Looked to the sky and began to shout

    "Hey lord, you delivered Daniel from the bottom of the lion's den
    You delivered Jonah from the belly of the whale and then
    The Hebrew children from the fiery furnace
    So the good books do declare
    Hey lord, if you can't help me,
    For goodness sake don't help that bear"
