Try Another Town

(parody of "Tie Your Mother Down" by Queen)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: This is my second attempt at new words for this song. I think this one turned out better than "Tie Yourself On Down," but I left that one up on the site in case anyone prefers it. This version is about Jesus sending out His disciples to preach.


There's a lot of towns where you got to expound.
You might get a beatin' maybe.
Some will be contrite, some will put up a fight.
You never know who might decide it's true, baby.

Matthew Ten from one-a, to forty-two on down,
And it's also in Luke 9,
Ain't no way they'll miss hearin' it this time.

Chorus:
Try another town, try another town.
If they don't accept the Word, then keep movin' around.
Try another town, try another town
'Cause they all need the Lord's true light.

Put your peace on a house, if that's what they espouse.
One's all you ever need if you're...
If you're truly wise, if actions don't link forever words
Don't mingle with uncivil nerds like those guys.

If they won't take the light, don't you put up any fight,
'Cause Heaven's kingdom is at hand.
Just put a stop to your peace on that housing.

chorus:
Try another town, try another town
Don't take a bag of money or a stick - get it right.
Try another town, try another town
If they ain't a friend of God.

Your Father gives you power from a Holy Ghost supply
If they won't understand it, take your peace and say bye-bye

chorus:
Try another town, try another town
You can kick, kick, kick, kick, kick your dust onto the ground.
Try another town, try another town
'Cause they all need the Lord's true light.
All need the Lord's true light
