The Old Country Church
recorded by The Statler Brothers
written by J.D. Sumner and James W. Vaughn

G                                    C          G
There's a place near to me where I'm longing to be
        Em                         D7
With my friends at the old country church
           G                      C            G
There with mother we went and our Sundays were spent
        Em                         G
With my friends at the old country church
                                   D7                G
Precious years of memories oh what joy they bring to me
How I long that place to be
        G              D7          G
With my friends at the old country church
                                    C         G
As a small country boy how my heart beat with joy
       Em                       D7
When I knelt in the old country church
        G                   C         G
And the Savior above by His wonderful love
         Em          D7          G
Saved my soul in the old country church
repeat #2
                                     C        G
Of't my thoughts make me weep for so many now sleep
         Em                          D7
In their graves near the old country church
                   G             C              G
And sometime I may rest with the friends I love best
     Em             D7          G
In a grave near the old country church
