Subject: Lyr Req: if that ain't bad enough fo' the guvnah

When I lived in Oakland,California,Ronald Reagan was governor from 1966 until 1974. There was a song? that I heard on the radio that was a Black preacher doing a call and response sermon, but instead of praising Jesus, he and the congregation were calling down curses on " th' guvnah" Like an elaborate form of the dozens/ Each time he got to the end of a phrase, he's start again "Whoooah, if that ain't bad enough for the guvnah" and then he'd go off again
" Let him be in an accident.ah! With a gasoline truck and match wagon,ah!" Building his cadence and pitch in the gospel tradition.
Very funny, can't find it but I know I didn't hallucinate this. Or did I?

I was in San Francisco and never heard it. I'm bitter about that.

Yes, it was a song sung in the south about the govoror of Alabama I believe. I heard it in the early '70s I'm looking for it now.

In the end, he sings: if that ain't bad enough for the gugnuh, oh lord let him be black like me.

Ray Scott - The Prayer:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNUVnR_OiOM

The Prayer

by Ray Scott

Now ladies and gentlemen, if you'll just
Bow your heads in prayer
We shall now pray for the governor

Oh Lord
Let the governor have a 17-car accident
With a gasoline truck
That's been hit by a match wagon
Over the Grand Canyon

And if that's not bad enough for the governor
Let the ambulance that's taking him to the hospital
Have four flat tyres
Let the motor crack
Let the block bust
Let the windshield crack
Let the driver have a stroke
And a haemorrhage
And run into a brick wall
That's housing nuclear warheads and TNT

And if that's not bad enough for the governor
When he gets to the hospital
Let the doctor be a junkie
With a gorilla on his back
An orang-utan in his room
And let the hospital catch on fire
And let the hospital ceiling cave in on the operating table
And let the doctor have a rusty scalpel in his hand

Oh Lord if that's not bad enough for the governor
Lord have mercy
Let him be stranded in the Sahara desert
10,000 miles of dry sand
Eyeballs buzzin'
Tongue swollen
Lips cracked
Crawling on his hands and knees
And let him come up on a cool running fruit stand
A frosted fruit juice
In that hot desert
And let them have a black waiter back there like they always have

And if that's not bad enough for the governor
Lord have mercy
Let lightning strike him in the heart 38 times
Let muddy water run in his grave
And let possums, 14 of them, suffering from hydrophobia
Eat through the casket looking for some new meat and make him so ugly
Until he will resemble a gorilla sucking hot Chinese mustard
Lying across a railroad track with freight trains, 22 of them, running across his kneecaps

And if that's not bad enough for the governor
Lord let him suffer
Make him live in agony
When he wakes up tomorrow morning
Oh Lord
Let him have nappy hair and be black like me
