Subject: Lyr Req: There'll Be No Meeting Tonight.
From: topical tom

Yet again I am thinking of an old song.I remember neither the title and only a few of the lyrics.As I recall it's about a pastor ,preacher, or minister who had a sexual dalliance ,or even sexual intercourse with a woman and, because of this he announced that "there'll be no meeting, service, or sermon tonight".This was due to his regret from having had a sexual experience with the woman. There was to be no meeting, service or sermon (one of the three) that night.Can anyone help me with words and maybe a video of that song? It may have been an old country song.

OK, so Dani and I have disagreed for years about what's the melody for this song. I claim I'm singing it (more-or-less) to the tune of the Carter Family's I'll Be All Smiles Tonight, also recorded by the Louvin Brothers. But Dani says I sing it wrong.

Now, the lyrics were written without a tune by Woody Guthrie. The song was recorded by Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion - I think they're the ones who set the lyrics to music. Their tune is not exactly "All Smiles" - and neither is mine.

But what is the proper tune for this song?
