The Church In The Wildwood



[C] There's a church in the valley by the [G] wildwood
[G7] No lovelier place in the [C] dale [C7]
[F] No spot is so dear to my [C] childhood
As the little brown [G] church in the dale

    Oh, come to the church by the wildwood
    Oh, come to the church in the dale
    No spot is so dear to my childhood
    As the little brown church in the vale

How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning
To list to the clear ringing bell
It's tones so sweetly are calling
Oh, come to the church in the vale

* Refrain

There, close by the church in the valley
Lies one htat I love so well
She sleeps, sweetly sleeps, neath the willow
Disturb not her rest in the vale

* Refrain

There, closs by the side of that loved one
Neath the tree where the wild flowers bloom
When the farewell hymn shall be chanted
I shall rest by her side in the tomb

* Refrain

Thanks to Kevin Shea for this version.
