Subject: Lyr Req: Hold Me Parson
From: Q (Frank Staplin)
Date: 07 Dec 03 - 10:24 PM

I am looking for two songs:
"Hold Me Parson, Hold Me, I Feel Religion Coming On," ca. 1909, by T. Russel Robinson.

"Hold Me Parson." Sung by Lizzie Miles (and others), 1930s. On Document's vol. 3 of Lizzie Miles. This one may be derived from the first.

I would greatly appreciate the lyrics.

According to Centre for Popular Music, the author is J Russel Robinson.

They say the first line is Miss Alabama Joplin was a yaller gal . The Imprint is Los Angeles, CA : Southern California Music Co., 1910 .

Apparently they have it in their collection in Tennessee. I haven't found an online copy of it yet.

Thanks, George.
Does anyone have the cd with Lizzie Miles? She was one of my favorites- I always loved her "Salty Dog."

I was able to transcribe this much from a 1-minute sound sample at Barnes & Noble:

HOLD ME PARSON

Now, hold me, parson, hold me, 'cause I feel my 'ligion comin' on.
You better take me down to the river an' wash my sins away.
I can hear that choir singin'. I love it more each day.
Now I know I'm talkin' queer.
Hold me, parson dear.
I feel my 'ligion comin' on.

Ah, hold me, hold me, parson, hold me,
'Cause I feels my 'ligion comin' on....

From Lizzie Miles: "Complete Recorded Works, Vol. 3 (1928-39)," Document CD 5460, 1996.

Thanks, Jim. Looks like the two songs may be related, although the first was a coon song. I think I will buy the cds- Lizzie had a wicked sense of humor.

That's one of the songs the OP (RIP, Frank) was looking for.
