Rusty Old Halo

	  		 
 
This is the work of Tim Ausburn. This is the way I remember the song from  
the late 1950's as done by Bill Carlisle. 
 
RUSTY OLD HALO   Written by Bob Merrill 
 
(C) I know a man, rich as a king, 
(G7) Still he just won't give his (C) neighbor a thing, 
His day will come, (F) I'll make a bet, 
(G7) He'll get to Heaven and here's what he'll (C) get; 
 
Chorus: 
(C) A rusty old halo, and a (G7) skinny white (C) cloud, 
Some (G7) second hand wings, full of (C) patches, 
Rusty old halo, (F) skinny white cloud, 
A (G7) robe that's so wooley it (C) scratches. 
 
(C) While you're on earth , shine like a star, 
(G7) Brighten the corner where- (C) -ever you are, 
Doin' the best, (F) that you can do, 
(G7) That way you're sure that they'll never hand (C) you; 
 
Repeat chorus:
