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 Gainsboro, 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? Ya'll have a nice day.

That is great and so true, some of my family is in Virginia and this really fits. We could all do to make life simpler.
