It was a time of the preacher 
When the story began
Of the choice of a lady 
And the love of a man

And he cried like a baby 
And he screamed like a panther 
In the middle of the night 
And he saddled his pony 
And he went for a ride
It was a time of the preacher 
In the year of O-one
Now the preachin' is over 
And the lesson's begun
