Verse:
A camp meeting took place, in a wide open space; way down in Georgia.
There were folks large and small, lanky, lean, fat and tall, at this great Georgia camp meeting.
When church was out, how the "sisters" did shout, they were so happy.
But the young folks were tired and wished to be inspired, and hired a big brass band.
 
Chorus:
When the big brass band began to play pretty music so gay,
Hats were then thrown away.
Thought them foolish people their necks would break,
When they quit their laughing and talking and went to walking for a big choc'late cake.
 
Trio:
Instrumental
