Hillbilly’s Ten Commandments

I received this in an email today. My family thought it was cute, so I thought maybe you guys might also.

Tennessee Ten Commandments

Some people in Tennessee have trouble with all those “shalls” and “shall nots” in the Ten commandments. Folks just aren’t used to talking in those terms. So, some folks in middle Tennessee got together and translated the “King James” into “Jackson County” language…. no joke, read on…

The Hillbilly’s Ten Commandments (posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Gainesboro, TN.)

(1) Just one God
(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa
(3) No tellin’ tales or gossipin’
(4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin’
(5) Put nothin’ before God
(6) No foolin’ around with another fellow’s gal
(7) No killin’
(8) Watch yer mouth
(9) Don’t take what ain’t yers
(10) Don’t be hankerin’ for yer buddy’s stuff

Now that’s kinda plain an’ simple, don’t ya think? Y’all have a nice day.
