This is the tab for the [G] run up to [C]. The run is the last three beats of the measure

D|----2-| Then play the [C] chord to start the nest measure

INTRO: [F]  [C]  [G] run up to [C]

     [C]                    [A7]
Well when I was a kid I'd take a trip 
Every summer down to Mississipp'
   [F]                       [G]          [C]      [G] run up to [C]
To visit my granny and her antebellum world

[C]                  [A7]
I'd run barefooted all day long
Climbin' trees free as a song
    [F]                     [G]              [C]
And one day I happened to catch myself a squirrel

Well I stuffed him down in an old shoe box
And punched a couple of holes in the top
         [D]                            [G]
And when Sunday came I snuck him into church

      [C]                       [A7]
I was sittin' way back in the very last pew
A Showin' him to my good buddy Hugh
          [F]                           [G]           [C]
When that squirrel got loose and went totally berserk

Well what happened next is hard to tell
Some thought it was Heaven others thought it was Hell
But the fact that something was among us was plain to see
As the choir sang "I surrender all"
The squirrel ran up Harve Newman's cover-alls
And Harve leaped to his feet and said
"Something's got a hold on me" YEOW!! 

     NC          [C]
     The day the squirrel went berserk
     In the First Self Righteous Church
             [F]             [G]            [C]
     In that sleepy little town of Pascagoula
     [G] run up to [C]
     It was a      fight for survival
     That broke out in revival
               [F]                [G]             [C]
     They were jumpin' pews and shoutin' hallelujah

     [C]                      [A7]
Well Harve hit the aisles a-dancin' and screamin'
Some thought he had religion others thought he had a demon
    [F]                           [G]                               [C]     [G] run up to [C]
And Harve thought he had a weed eater loose in his fruit of the looms
[C]                       [A7]
He fell to his knees to plead and beg
And that squirrel ran out of his britches leg
     [F]            [G]                 [C]
Unobserved to the other side of the room
All the way down to the Amen pew
Where sat Sister Bertha-Better-Than-You
           [D]                                        [G]
Who'd been watching all the commotion with sadistic glee

     [C]                      [A7]
Well you should've seen the look in her eyes
When that squirrel jumped her garters and crossed her thighs
     [F]                           [G]                  [C]
She jumped to her feet and said "Lord have mercy on me"

As the squirrel made laps inside her dress
She began to cry and then to confess
To sins that would make a sailor blush with shame
She told of gossip and church dissention
But the thing that got the most attention
Was when she talked about her love life
And then she started namin' names


     [C]                     [A7]
Well seven deacons and the pastor got saved
And twenty five thousand dollars got raised
    [F]                     [G]                              [C]     [G] run up to [C]
And fifty volunteered for missions in the Congo - on the spot

    [C]               [A7]
And even without an invitation
There were at least five hundred re-dedications
       [F]             [G]                             [C]  
And we all got re-baptized whether we needed it or not

Now you've heard the Bible story I guess
How he parted the waters for Moses to pass
       [D]                                    [G]
Oh the miracles God has wrought in this old world

        [C]                         [A7]  
But the one I'll remember 'til my dying day
Is how he put that church back on the narrow way
       [F]           [G]           [C]
With a half crazed Mississippi squirrel


OUTRO  (Slow slightly)
          [F]                [G]             [C]        [F] [C]
They Were jumpin' pews and Shoutin' hallelujah
