The White Oak Babtizing

Out in the White Oak bottoms
east of town out near the river
on Sunday's they used to have
a Babtiizing and there would be
car loads of people show up
my dad had to get tuned up
now and then he would take me
with him there would be 2 lines
of sinners on most Sunday's
women in 1 line men in the other
the preachers would dunk those
sinning men and sinning women
under the water until they lost
their breath and washed their sins
away from'em and then they'd
come up for air screaming like
wildcat's you could hear them
scream all over the White Oak
bottoms clear to the river
