The big one Lyrics

The big one by Confederate Railroad  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The big one It was a hot Sunday mornin'

Middle of July

The choir was a singin'

'Bout the sweet by and by


Everybody was a swayin'

And sweatin' in the heat

We all bowed our heads down

As the preacher took his seat


My sister and my brother stood next to my mother

In the quiet at the close of the verse

That's when daddy cut the big one

At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church


My sister rolled her eyes back

My brother bit his lip

My cousin just behind us

Whispered, "Hey, who let it rip?"


I stuck my face in my shirtsleeve

Stared down at my shoes

Lord, you could hear a pin drop

As we stood there in the pew

Heads were turnin', eyes were burnin'


Momma stuck her nose in her purse

After daddy cut the big one

At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church


He cut the big one

It was a stinker

Then he broke the silence

With a snicker

And us kids started laughin'

'Til I thought we was all gonna burst

After daddy cut the big one

At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church


He said, "The devil made me do it"

Momma said it was the liverwurst

And that's why daddy cut the big one

At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church
