Clayton Wants To Go To Church

By Clancy O’Lafferty

Clayton Delaney sat under a tree

In the shade on a Sunday and cried,

The Lord came along and said

“Clayton what’s wrong witcha

“I’z still right heah by yo’ side!”

“Lord, for weeks I bin wantin’ to go to dat church

But da folks der don’ wan’ me I fears.”

“Well, Clayton we both be heah in da same boat

I bin tryin’ to get in der for years!”

old country church
