This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the song. You may only use this file for private study, scholarship, or research.


This song goes way back to a band called The Chuckwagon Gang, a family group
that was very popular with Southern Baptists, even though they never hit The
Big Time.  I have no idea who wrote, or when.

It is done in moderate time, and i have used the journalistic standby of 3
dots to indicate a short pause of about 2 beats each.
