Could this be "Daddy was an old time preacher man???

No it's not "Daddy was an old time preacher" I've been looking for the words also. Some of the words go " You should have heard him, when he preached the blessed  holy word .  You have heard him, such preaching you have never heard". Hope you can find the words. I'd like to know them too.

Seems like the name of the tune was "That Old Time Preacher Man", although I am not sure.  As I remember the first line it was:  Well I went down to the old camp meeting twas most for to see the sight. But I got such a hearty greeting that I went back every night. They had a old time country preacher and he certainly knew God's word.   You oughta heard him when he preached the blessed holy word, Well he preached about an hour bout the sermon on the mount and when he ended up he had the devil on the rout. You oughta heard him that old time preacher man.

Daddy was an old time preacher man

Daddy was an old time preacher man
He preached the word of God throughout the land
He praeached so plain a child could understand
Yes daddy was an old time preacher man

He told the people of the need to pray
He talked about God's wrath on Judgement Day
He preached about that great eternity
He breathed hell so hot that you could feel the heat
Daddy was an old time preacher man and Leona would get up to testify
And we'd sing in the sweet by and by then we'd sing I'm on my way to Canaan Land
Yes daddy was an old time preacher man

Revivals and camps meetin's with four weeks
Folks came from all around to hear him preach
Daddy said if one is saved it's worth it all
But the aisles were allways filled at altar calls
Daddy was an old time preacher man...

Daddy worked for God but asked no pay for he believed that God provides away
We never had a lot but we got by yes it's cause the Lord was on my daddy's side
Daddy was an old time preacher man
In the sweet by and by we shall meet on that beautiful shore
I'm on my way to Canaan's Land yes daddy was an old time preacher man
In the sweet by and by we shall meet on that beautiful shore
I'm on my way to Canaan Land yes daddy was an old time preacher man

Well I went down to the old camp meeting, just to hear the word.
There was this old time gospel preacher, such preaching you never heard.
You oughta heard him, that old time preacher man,
You oughta heard him, that old time preacher man.

Well he looked the congregation right straight in the face,
And then he started preaching about saving grace.
He preached about an hour on the Sermon on the Mount,
And we he ended up he had the devil on the rout.

You oughta heard him, that old time preacher man.
You oughta heard him, that old time preacher man.
