Ten Commandments

Some people have trouble with all those ‘shall’s’ and ‘shall not’s’ in the Ten Commandments. Southern Country Folks just aren’t used to talking in those terms.

So, in middle Tennessee they translated the ‘King James’ into ‘Jackson County’ language. This is not a joke.  It is posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Gainesboro, TN.

(1) Just one God
(2) Put nothin’ before God
(3) Watch yer mouth
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin’
(5) Honor yer Ma & Pa
(6) No killin’
(7) No foolin’ around with another fellow’s gal
(8) Don’t take what ain’t yers
(9) No tellin’ tales or gossipin’
(10) Don’t be hankerin’ for yer buddy’s stuff

Now that’s plain an’ simple.
Y’all have a nice day now, ya hear!
And bless your little heart….
