The Church In The Wildwood

There's a [G]church in the valley by the wild[D]wood,

no lovelier [D7]place in the [G]dale,

no [C]spot is so dear to my child[G]hood,

as the [D]little brown church in the [G]dale.

CH

Oh, come, come, come, come,

come to the church in the wild[D]wood,

oh, come to the [D7]church in the [G]dale.

No [C]spot is so dear to my child[G]hood,

as the [D]little brown church in the [G]dal

 

 

How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning

to listen to the clear ringing bell,

its tones so sweetly are calling,

oh, come to the church in the dale.  + CHORUS

 

There, close by the side of a loved one,

’neath the trees where the wild flowers bloom,

she sleeps, sweetly sleeps, ‘neath the willow,

disturb not her rest in the tomb.    + CHORUS    + CHORUS
