OLD COUNTRY CHURCH

There's a [C] place dear to me where I'm [F] longing to [C] be With my friends at the old country [G] church [F-G-C] Where with [C] mother we went and our [F] Sunday's were [C] spent With our friends at the [G] old [F] country [C] church [F-G-C] As a small country boy how my heart beat with joy When I knelt in the old country church And the saviour above by His wonderful love Saved my soul at the old country church How I wish that today all the people would pray As we prayed in the old country church If they'd only confess Jesus surely would bless As He did in the old country church Oft my thoughts make me weep for so many now sleep In their graves near the old country church And sometime I may rest with the friends I love best In a grave near the old country church Precious [C] years of memories Oh what [G] joy they bring to [C] me How I hope once more to [F] be With [C] my friends at the [G] old country [C] church
