Utah Phillips

"Preacher and the Slave"

Long-haired preachers come out every night
Try to tell you what's wrong and what's right
But when asked how 'bout something to eat
They will answer with voices so sweet

You will eat (You will eat)
Bye and bye (bye and bye)
In that glorious land in the sky (in the sky)
Work and Pray (Work and Pray)
Live on hay (live on hay)
You'll get pie in the sky when you die (That's a Lie)

And the starvation army they play
And they sing and they clap and they pray
When they've get all your coins on the drum
They will tell you when you're on the bum

You will eat (You will eat)
Bye and bye (bye and bye)
In that glorious land in the sky (in the sky)
Work and Pray (Work and Pray)
Live on hay (live on hay)
You'll get pie in the sky when you die (That's a Lie)

Holy Rollers and jumpers come out
And they roll and they jump and they shout
Give your money to Jesus, they say
And you'll eat on that glorious day

You will eat (You will eat)
Bye and bye (bye and bye)
In that glorious land in the sky (in the sky)
Work and Pray (Work and Pray)
Live on hay (live on hay)
You'll get pie in the sky when you die (That's a Lie)

Workingmen of all countries unite
Side by side we for freedom shall fight
When the world and its wealth we have gained
To the grafters we'll sing this refrain

You will eat (You will eat)
Bye and bye (bye and bye)
When you've learned how to cook and to fry
Chop some wood, (Chop some wood)
Do you good (do you good)
And you'll eat in the sweet bye and bye (That's no Lie)
