Lyrics

1. Oh the Deacon went down (echo)
To the cellar to pray (echo)
He found a jug (echo)
And he stayed all day (echo)
Oh the Deacon went down to the cellar to pray,
He found a jug and he stayed all day,
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more (my Lord no more)

Refrain
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more

2. Oh you can’t get to heaven (echo)
On roller skates (echo)
You’ll roll right by (echo)
Those pearly gates (echo)
Oh you can’t get to Heaven on roller skates,
You’ll roll right by those pearly gates.
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more (my Lord no more) Refrain

3. Oh you can’t get to heaven (echo)
In a rockin’ chair (echo)
Cause the Lord don’t want (echo)
No lazybones there (echo)
Oh you can’t get the heaven… Refrain

4. Oh you can’t get to heaven…in a limousine…
‘Cause the Lord don’t sell… no gasoline… Refrain

5. Oh you can’t get to heaven… In dirty duds…
‘Cause the Lord don’t have… no super suds… Refrain

6. I’ll put my grief… up on the shelf…
If you want some more… make ’em up yourself… Refrain
