If so, I would like the lyrics.

Thanks,

Assuming the parody exists, it must be based on this bluegrass gospel song, which has never been discussed in a forum thread at Mudcat, although it is in the DT, without attribution.

I'M USING MY BIBLE FOR A ROADMAP
Don Reno and Charles Schroeder
Fort Knox Music Inc. and Trio Music Inc., © 1952.

I'm using my Bible for a roadmap.
Ten Commandments, they tell me what to do.
The Twelve Disciples are my road signs,
And Jesus will see me safely through.

CHORUS: There'll be no detours in Heaven,
No rough roads along the way.
I'm using my Bible for a roadmap.
My last stop is Heaven some sweet day.

I'm using my Bible for a roadmap.
The children of Israel used it too.
They crossed the Red Sea of destruction,*
For God was there to see them through. CHORUS

[Recorded by Reno & Smiley (Dan Reno & Red Smiley); also by the Blackwood Brothers, the Country Gentlemen, Bill Harrell, Mac Wiseman, and many others.]

[* I wonder if the songwriter considered that they wandered in the desert for 40 years!]

I like the harmonizing on most recordings of the real song.

The parody must not exist..

Reno and Smiley - I'm Using My Bible For A Roadmap is on YouTube.

I'm Using My Bible For A Roadmap, probably by Mac Wiseman.

I'm using my Bible as a roadblock

Ten Commandments, told me what to do.

The Twelve Disciples they were Southen Baptists ,

And Jesus was Rebel Redneck too.



CHORUS: There'll be no liberals in Heaven,

only Christians just like me upon The Day.

I'm using my Bible for a roadblock.

It helps keep other religions away.


More later
Not too cynical?

I think this is an excellent idea. I have wondered why people who say the Bible is full of so much truth don't use it as a road map in taht part of Asia.

How exactly did the "children of Israel" use the Bible for a road map when they crossed the Red Sea--considering the relevant parts couldn't have been written yet? Not even the Ten Commandments could have been known then. They were given to Moses in Sinai (or so we are told).

We do this Don Reno tune in Castle Ridge, especially when hired to do a gospel show. But the key here is that historical and theological accuracy is rarely a requirement (or even desirable) in a bluegrass gospel number.

I'm reminded of the Carter Stanley tune White Dove. “...But the Savior needs angles up in heaven, Now they sing around the great white throne.” This always gives me a vision of what we used to call “driving the porcelain bus.” Not a good vision to have in the middle of a show.

I'M USING MY BIBLE FOR A ROADBLOCK
Songwriter: ??

I'm using my Bible as a roadblock
Ten Commandments, told me what to do.
The Twelve Disciples they were Southen Baptists ,
And Jesus was Rebel Redneck too.

CHORUS:
There'll be no liberals in Heaven,
Only Christians just like me upon The Day.
I'm using my Bible for a roadblock.
It helps keep other religions away.


I'm using my Bible as a roadblock
To keep me pure and ready for the fray
Jesus was a good old boy from Texas
Invented Coors to wash my sins away

And I know theyll be no Gun Laws in heaven
they wont try to push control that only harms
I'm using my Bible as a roadblock
'cos Jesus gave the Right to carry arms

When he sent David out to fight Goliath
He gave him a slingshot at the door
But if he knew about Sam Colt's black powder
He'd a given him a Magnum Forty Four

Chorus tune
I'm using my Bible as a roadblock
To stop things with which I don't agree
I'm using my Bible as a roadblock
To keep the world exactly right for me

There's only one path to Heaven
and I'm blocking off the other roads.
I'm using my Bible for a Roadblock
so heathens have to do what they are told.

I don't need my Bible for a Roadmap

So I'm using my Bible for a Roadblock
to help godless bastards find the Lord.

I don't need no bible for a roadmap
I've got my Garmin GPS on board
So I can head back north where folks are normal
When those crazy Southern Baptists preach the Lord!

I'm using my bible for a roadblock
To keep those heathen bastards all at bay
'cause I don't want no foreign competition
When I ascend in rapture on that day!
