Bill & Gloria Gaither – That Old-Time Preacher Man (Live)

Well I went down to the big camp meeting, but it was most for to see the sights.
But I got such a hearty greeting, that I went back every night…
They had an old time Gospel preacher, from the Good Book he solemnly read
But when he starting preaching about soul salvation, you oughta heard the things he said…

You oughta heard him, when he preached the blessed holy word…
You oughta heard him, such preachin’, you have never heard
Well he looked the congregation right straight in the face
And then he started preachin about saving grace..
He preached about an hour about the Sermon on the Mount.
And when he ended up, he had the devil on the route…
You oughta heard him, that old time preacher man..

He led three songs for the congregation and knelt in a word of prayer
He turned to Chapter 5 in Matthew and he took his text from there…
He preached the real old time salvation and he suddenly proved himself
For after he extended the invitation, there wasn’t many sinners left…

You oughta heard him, when he preached the blessed holy word…
You oughta heard him, such preachin’, you have never heard
Well he looked the congregation right straight in the face
And then he started preachin’ about saving grace..
He preached about an hour about the Sermon on the Mount.
And when he ended up, he had the devil on the route…

You oughta heard him, when he preached the blessed holy word…

You oughta heard him, such preachin’, you have never heard
Well he looked the congregation right straight in the face
And then he started preachin’ about saving grace..
He preached about an hour about the Sermon on the Mount.
And when he ended up, he had the devil on the route…

You oughta heard him, that old time preacher man..
