The John Scopes Trial

Oh the folks in Tennessee
Are as faithful as can be,
And they know the Bible teaches what is right.
They believe in God above
And His great undying love
And they know they are protected by His might.

Then to Dayton came a man
With his ideas new and grand
And he said we came from monkeys long ago.
But in teaching his belief
Mr. Scopes found only grief
For they would not let their old religion go.

You may find a new belief
It will only bring you grief
For a house that's built on sand is sure to fall.
And wherever you may turn
There's a lesson you will learn
That the old religion's better after all.

Then the folks throughout the land
Saw his house was built on sand
And they said, "We will not listen anymore."
So they told him he was wrong
And it wasn't very long
Till he found that he was turned from every door.

Oh, you must not doubt the word
That is written by the Lord
For if you do your house will surely fall.
And Mr. Scopes will learn
That wherever he may turn
That the old religion's better after all.

You may find a new belief
It will only bring you grief
For a house that's built on sand is sure to fall.
And wherever you may turn
There's a lesson you will learn
That the old religion's better after all.
