Working On A Building

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry with Old And In The Way

Well if I was a preacher, I tell you what I would do
I'd quit my preaching and I'd work on the building too

Chorus
I'm working on a building, I'm working on a building
I'm working on a building for my Lord, for my Lord
It's a Holy Ghost building, it's a Holy Ghost building
It's a Holy Ghost building for my Lord, for my Lord

Well if I was a drunkard, I tell you what I would do
I'd quit my drinking and I'd work on the building too

[chorus]

If I was I was a dealer, I tell you what I would do
I'd quit my dealing and I'd work on the building too

[chorus]
