THE CHURCH IN THE WILDWOOD


                       G                                             D

1. There's a church in the valley by the wildwood,

                       D7               G

    no lovelier place in the dale,

             C                               G

    no spot is so dear to my childhood,

               D                                       G

    as the little brown church in the dale.

 

 Chorus
                                                   

Oh, come, come, come, come,

                                                   D

come to the church in the wildwood,

                             D7                G

oh, come to the church in the dale.

         C                               G

No spot is so dear to my childhood,

           D                                       G

as the little brown church in the dale.

 

                 G                                         D

2. How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning

                              D7               G

    to listen to the clear ringing bell,

          C                                G

    it's tones so sweetly are calling,

            D                                      G

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

 

                  G                                        D

3. There, close by the side of a loved one,

                                                D7                G

    ’neath the trees where the wild flowers bloom,

              C                                                   G

    she sleeps, sweetly sleeps, ‘neath the willow,

          D                                 G

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