So, I could get most of these lyrics by ear, I find in some questionable holes from discussion about the song from one of those old google group chats (here).

Also, here's about all the talk about Dave Macon chords you could ever need: http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=8697.0

Some people think the chorus ends "I possess the inclination," but I don't think that's right, because what does he possess the inclination for?

Anyway, let me know if you agree or not with my transcription of it

WORTHY OF ESTIMATION

(spoken) Let's go buddy

Come to town the other night, called myself a perfect teacher
After talkin' the whole town out, everybody said "there's a natch'l born reacher!"

CHORUS
Oh worthy 'f estimation, after long consideration
There's a great reputation, I possess Thee in The Nation

Ain't no use to grieve and cry, for you've got to live until you die
But if you take the suicide route, your soul is lost for the sweet bye 'n bye
   
CHORUS

People used to preach the Bible and the Saviour crucified
Now they're preaching for the money, and the money-multiplied

CHORUS

May be so, but I don't know, but I know I believe I'm right
Something more than a radio to keep a man home and quiet at night

CHORUS

God placed Adam & Eve in the garden, He also showed them the tree of life
But when they disobeyed his word they soon realized sin and strife

CHORUS

worthy of estimation, after long-a consideration
As the great-a reputation, I'm the best-a in the nation
