Lyrics

Uncle John never married and lived all alone up in the hills
Surrounded by the forest, a few good friends and their moonshine stills
Though he never went to church he had a strong belief all his own.
He never let you down or was the one to ever cast a stone.

Uncle John would tell the story of the first time he ever saw a suit
He was just a child of seven in his parent's two room cabin in the woods
A preacher came a calling preaching glory halleluiah see the light
And the black suit that the preacher wore stayed with Uncle John all his life.

Oh that preacher in his glory
Oh that preacher in his glory
Oh that preacher in his glory in his new black suit
Oh that preacher in his glory
Preaching glory halleluiah
Oh that preacher in his glory in his new black suit

From time to time when needed Uncle John drove his old truck into town
For some coffee and tobacco and to try and catch up on the local news
But soon you would find him at the local clothing store down on Main
And starring though that window he could hear that preacher's praises once again

Oh that preacher in his glory
Oh that preacher in his glory
Oh that preacher in his glory in his new black suit
Oh that preacher in his glory
Preaching glory halleluiah
Oh that preacher in his glory in his new black suit

At the age of 95 Uncle John got a brand new store bought suit
With a new white shirt and tie and a shiny pair of black leather shoes
Three weeks to the day Uncle John passed away all alone
So we sent him to his glory in the one suit Uncle John ever owned.

Uncle John's gone to glory
Uncle John's gone to glory
Uncle John's gone to glory in his new black suit
Yes we sent him to his glory
Singing glory Halleluiah
Uncle John's gone to glory in his new black suit
