THE DAY THEM TWO SINNERS CAME TO CHURCH – “NEW LIFE” BULLETIN

It were the spring of forty-four
The times were mighty poor
But I’ll never forget the day
It were the twenty-fourth of May
The day them two sinners came to church.

As they walked in and sat down near the front
You could’a heard deacon Wilson’s grunt\
Bout half way into next week
As he slid down in his seat
The day them two sinners came to church.

The feller were ol’ Tom Strunk
Commonly known as the town drunk
He smiled to the left an’ then to the right
It were really quite a sight
The day them two sinners came to church.

The other member of this unusual procession 
Were Millie, from the world’s oldest profession.
That lady of the night were there bright as day
Right there on that sunny twenty-fourth of May
The day them two sinners came to church.

Billy Bob were leadin’ the singin’
About them golden bells a ringin’
An folks were doin’ their best
To sing them songs with zest
The day them two sinners came to church.

I were thinkin’ about the communion
I knowed there be some confusion
If them sinners touched the emblems
And caused some scriptural problems
The day them two sinners came to church.

Billy Joe Hicks weren’t sure what to do
But he handed the bread to them two 
As he watched ol’ Tom Strunk
Break off a good-sized chunk
The day them two sinners came to church.

Next came the fruit of the vine 
I hoped ol’ Tom didn’t think it were wine
As he stared at the cup
Before turnin’ it up
The day them two sinners came to church.

Millie didn’t touch the plate or the tray
And kinda looked the other way
But there was a sadness on her face
As if she knowed she were out of place
The day them two sinners came to church

Elder Johnson looked fit to be tied
Wider Jones looked about to die
Preacher Herman were startin’ to tremble
While his outline he tried to assemble
The day them two sinners came to church.

We’s all lookin’ at brother Herman
To start his hell-fire sermon
The hymns had been sung
The church bell had been rung
The day them two sinners came to church.

The sermon were fiery an’ pointed
Brother Herman almost came disjointed
As he tried to reign them in
Preachin’ all about kinds of sin
The day them two sinners came to church.

It were such a powerful sermon
He had us all a squirmin’
Sweat were runnin’ under my collar
As I promised to give more than a dollar
The day them two sinners came to church.

Ol’ Tom began to nod
While Millie sat straight as a rod
Never takin’ her eyes off Brother Hermon
As she listened to that hell-fire sermon
The day them two sinners came to church

When they didn’t accept the invitation
I sensed a sigh of jubilation
They left  and never came back again
And you should’a heard that last Amen
The day them two sinners came to church.

Why they came we were never told
I reckon we treated them kinda cold
The only person with whom they spoke
Was crazy Barney Polk
The day them two sinners came to church.

Ol’ Tom died the very next summer
We heard Millie ran off with a drummer
I’m old but I aint dead yet
And you cen bet I’ll never forget
The day them two sinners came to church.
