extended version
 
standard version
It's a song about Sunday in Savannah

One more Sunday in Savannah
Hear the whole creation shouting
Praise the Lord
See them flinging out the banner
While the congregation says Amen

One more Sunday in Savannah
Hear the whole creation shouting
Praise the Lord
See them flinging out the banner
While the congregation says Amen

Young folks attending Sunday school
They sing merrily 'bout the Golden Rule
Parsons preaching all the day
They holler in the righteous way

It's time for me to call on
My ol' late Hanna
While she sits there
Wishing for her last reward

One more Sunday in Savannah
One more Sunday in Atlanta
It's the same thing
Same state same feeling
Don't you dare go fishing son
