See Me Wear This Ring
Taken from Trip Three of my current project:
Beam Me Back to Bible Days


* * * * *
That devilís been giviní me trouble
Since Iíve been born again
But since I read my Bible
It showed me ways that I could win
God took this sad-faced sorry son of a gun
Made me one of His chosen sons

See me wear this ring
Iím a child of the King
And the devil canít get me down
No-o-o-o
And the devil canít get me down!

* * * * *

So many folks a-moaniní and groaniní
Only faith can set them free
To get out of a jam
Open wide your hand
Youíll attract prosperity
Oh, wonít you come share a blessing with me
Plant a money seed to meet your need

Plant a blessing seed
Be a child of the King
And the devil won't get you down
No-o-o-o
And the devil won't get you down!

* * * * *

If you're down to your last penny
Sow a seed and you'll receive
Go out and borrow more money
Make a vow out of your need
Just mail more mites like the widow
And your blessings will overflow

Make a vow of faith
And you'll make no mistake
And that devil won't keep you down
No-o-o-o
And that devil won't keep you down!

* * * * *

Ben belted out this refrain, in an operatic tone:

When old Sluefoot comes a-callin'
To pinch my dollars and dimes
Get your hooks off my dollars I HOLLER-R-R-R
You dirty rotten bucket of slime!

Iím a-buildiní a mansion in glory
With bricks of gorgeous green
The ritziest palace is a-waitiní for me
That eye hath ever seen
No devil in hell can stop me
From liviní like a king

See me wear this watch
I've come out on the top
'Cause no devil could keep me down
No-o-o-o
'Cause old sluefoot can't keep me down!

* * * * *

Ben danced and sang to synthesized bagpipe chords and a throbbing drumbeat:

Youíll feel so good if you give like you should
Cast your wampum on the waters now
Donít you grumble just hustle
Make them dollars rustle
Toss Ďem into the bucket now
Better stop and think
Donít you make a clink
Only birds oughta go cheep cheep!

See me wear this ring
Iím a child of the King
And the devil canít get me down
No-o-o-o
And the devil canít get me down!

* * * * *

A swirling harp intro launched Ben on this verse:

I got a great big piece of blessing pie
You can see before your eyes
I got a great big castle in the skies
In a land where no one dies
I got cars and stars in my glory crown
Youíll never see this feller frown

See me wear this ring
I'm a child of the King
And the devil can't get me down
No-o-o-o
And the devil can't get me down!

* * * * *

A gentle o-o-o-o-ing aria from the choir, a muted twinkling of blue stage lights, a somber reflective look on Benís face, then he earnestly sang:

Faith gives me showers of power
To shout and dance and sing
If ya got a need
Just plant a seed
The buckets are a-cominí round
Make a joyful noise
All ye girls and boys
Get a star in your glory crown

And you'll get the ring
Of a child of the King
And the devil won't get you down
No-o-o-o
And the devil won't get you down!

* * * * *

An abrupt brightening of the lights, then a rolypoly man, dressed in a red-striped shirt and straw hat skittered onstage. He bowed to the audience, then strummed a ukulele to Benís frantic plea:

If youíre in a pickle
Donít fiddle with nickels
Take a tenner from your wallet now
If ya wanna have plenty
Just toss in twenty
And I donít mean peanuts, pal
Write a big fat check
Go to heaven, not heck
Put your money where your mouth is now

See me wear this ring
Iím a child of the King
And the devil canít get me down
No-o-o-o
And the devil canít get me down!

* * * * *


Benís voice swelled up into a brassy refrain:

When olí sluefoot comes a-calliní
To cause commotion within
Get your hooks off my dollars I HOLLER-R-R-R-R
You dirty rotten sack of sin!

Iím gonna sing and shout
Cast the devil out
With a mighty cry of victory
Gonna tell the story
To the saints in Glory
How I left a life of poverty
O won't you come and join with me
In the great glad jubilee

Plant your blessing seed
Be a child of the King
And the devil won't keep you down
No-o-o-o
And the devil won't keep you down!

* * * * *
Ben scratched his head and said: ďHonest Injun, folks, I'm tryin' to stop, but I absolutely swear Iíll shut up after I share just one more secret for successful liviní...

A guy in a straw hat and patched overalls moseyed onstage, strumming his banjo at frantic speed as Ben sang his fastest:

If ya wanna be a winner
Donít be a sinner
Cast your wampum on the waters now
Pass the buckets round
Make a joyful sound
Be a joyful jolly giver now
Bring all your cares to the man upstairs
And heíll shower you with your fair share

See me wear this ring
Iím a child of the King
And the devil canít get me down
No-o-o-oÖ

Ben whirled on his heel and boomed out his finale with a blast from his big brass band:

And the devil canít get me dow-ow-ow-own
Down! Dow-ow-ow-own! YEAH!
