Heptune presents:

'Tain't So, Honey, 'Tain't So


Transcribed from vocals by Bing Crosby and chorus, with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, n.d.,
From Bix "n" Bing with the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, Academy Sound and Vision, CD AJA 5005.

Hey, people, you should come to Arkansas,
Meet a friend of mine, old Aunt Phoebe Law,
She's known to everyone for miles around,
She will help you when friends forsake you and troubles bear you down!
For those who come her way
Are blessed when they hear her say:

'Tain't so, honey, 'tain't so,
Spoke to the Lord and the Lord said no,
'Tain't so,
Honey, 'tain't so.

'Tain't so, honey, 'tain't so,
Tomorrow will bring something good, I know,
'Tain't so,
I mean, it just ain't so.

Makes no difference what your problem may be,
Just look up, brother, and I'm sure you'll agree.

'Tain't so, honey, 'tain't so,
The Devil said yes, but the Lord said no,
'Tain't so,
Honey, 'tain't so.
