E|3-----|


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

     [C]                    [A7]
Well when I was a kid I'd take a trip 
      [D7]
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
[D7]
Climbin' trees free as a song
    [F]                     [G]              [C]
And one day I happened to catch myself a squirrel

       [F]
Well I stuffed him down in an old shoe box
    [C]
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
  [D7]
A Showin' him to my good buddy Hugh
          [F]                           [G]           [C]
When that squirrel got loose and went totally berserk

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

CHORUS
     NC          [C]
     The day the squirrel went berserk
     [D]
     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
          [D]
     That broke out in revival
               [F]                [G]             [C]
     They were jumpin' pews and shoutin' hallelujah
(halleluja)

     [C]                      [A7]
Well Harve hit the aisles a-dancin' and screamin'
     [D7]
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
         [D7]
And that squirrel ran out of his britches leg
     [F]            [G]                 [C]
Unobserved to the other side of the room
[F]
All the way down to the Amen pew
      [C]
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
          [D7]
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"

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

CHORUS

     [C]                     [A7]
Well seven deacons and the pastor got saved
    [D7]
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
              [D7]
There were at least five hundred re-dedications
       [F]             [G]                             [C]  
And we all got re-baptized whether we needed it or not

           [F]
Now you've heard the Bible story I guess
       [C]
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
          [D7]
Is how he put that church back on the narrow way
       [F]           [G]           [C]
With a half crazed Mississippi squirrel

CHORUS

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