Parson Brown

Lyrics: John Dawson
Music: John Dawson

Well, down, down, down
Parson Brown
Was discovered in the well
Dead as hell

Now well, well, well
What befell
Dear old kindly Parson Brown
And brought him down

Now everybody said he was righteous
And everybody loved him one could tell
Everyone that is, I guess, except the person
That put Parson Brown in the well
Yeah, who put Parson Brown in the well?

Oh yeah, everybody said he was righteous
And everybody loved him one could tell
Everyone that is, I guess, except the person
That put Parson Brown in the well
Now who put Parson Brown in the well?

My, my, my
Now time can fly
And who will tell us how to be
Without he

'Cause down, down, down
Parson Brown
Was discovered in the well
Dead as hell
