Old Country Baptizing

Song Author Emmylou Harris og Gram Parsons Lyrics by: Emmylou Harris og Gram Parsons Performer: Emmylou Harris og Gram Parsons Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Traveling down a country road [F]on a Sunday [C]morn
Saw a crowd gathered at the creek [D7]at a little country [G7]farm   
[C]I thought that I'd go closer so [F]I might see and [C]hear
Why they looked so happy there [G7]without a thing to [C]fear

Was a good old country baptizing [F]I was at that [C]day  
They'd preach awhile and sing awhile [D7]then they'd all kneel down and [G7]pray   
[C]God's spirit seemed to fill the air and [F]every soul was [C]meek
At a good old country baptizing [G7]down at the [C]creek

I heard an old and gentle voice [F]sing right in the [C]end  
We're so glad to have you here [D7]welcome down my [G7]friend
[C]We've had a big revival sir [F]down to it all [C]week
Now we're having a baptizing [G7]down at the [C]creek

Was a good old country baptizing [F]I was at that [C]day  
They'd preach awhile and sing awhile [D7]then they'd all kneel down and [G7]pray   
[C]God's spirit seemed to fill the air and [F]every soul was [C]meek
At a good old country baptizing [G7]down at the [C]creek

Well among them happy be among [F]that happy [C]throne
See them all go air their sins [D7]while they're at their [G7]own   
[C]They seem to be saying with a [F]smile upon their [C]face
I'm ready now to move along [G7]to my resting [C]place


Traveling down a country road on a Sunday morn
Saw a crowd gathered at the creek at a little country farm
I thought that I'd go closer so I might see and hear
Why they looked so happy there without a thing to fear

Was a good old country baptizing I was at that day
They'd preach awhile and sing awhile then they'd all kneel down and pray
God's spirit seemed to fill the air and every soul was meek
At a good old country baptizing down at the creek

I heard an old and gentle voice sing right in the end
We're so glad to have you here welcome down my friend
We've had a big revival sir down to it all week
Now we're having a baptizing down at the creek

Was a good old country baptizing I was at that day
They'd preach awhile and sing awhile then they'd all kneel down and pray
God's spirit seemed to fill the air and every soul was meek
At a good old country baptizing down at the creek

Well among them happy be among that happy throne
See them all go air their sins while they're at their own
They seem to be saying with a smile upon their face
I'm ready now to move along to my resting place
