    A Hundred Pounds Of Clay
    Gene McDaniels
    Highest chart position # 3 in 1961
    Written by Bob Elgin, Luther Dixon, and Kay Roger

    He took a hundred pounds of clay
    And they He said “Hey, listen”
    “I’m gonna fix this-a world today”
    “Because I know what’s missin’ “
    Then He rolled his big sleeves up
    And a brand-new world began
    He created a woman and-a lots of lovin’ for a man
    Whoa-oh-oh, yes he did

    With just a hundred pounds of clay
    He made my life worth livin’
    And I will thank Him every day
    For every kiss you’re givin’
    And I’ll thank Him every night
    For the arms that are holdin’ me tight
    And He did it all with just a hundred pounds of clay
    Yes he did, whoa-oh, yes He did

    Now can’tcha just see Him a-walkin’ ’round and ’round
    Pickin’ the clay uppa off the ground?
    Doin’ just what He should do
    To make a livin’ dream like you

    He rolled His big sleeves up
    And a brand-new world began
    He created a woman and-a lots of lovin’ for a man
    Whoa-oh-oh, yes he did
    With just a hundred pounds of clay

    FADE
    People, let me tall ya what He did
    With just a hundred pounds of clay
