Old Time Camp Meeting

Song Author Grandpa Jones Lyrics by: Grandpa Jones Performer: Grandpa Jones Submitted by: Anonymous


[G]Long ago when [C]but a boy at [G]old camp meeting time
[C]How my heart would [G]leap for joy to [A7]hear the old bells [D7]chime
[G]Calling all the [C]saints of God in[G]to the house of prayer
[C]Oh such praying [G]singing and shouting [D7]for the Lord was [G]there

I like the old time [C]preaching praying [G]singing shouting
I like the old time [A7]reading of God's [D7]word   
[G]I like to hear those [C]old time Hallelu[G]jah stories
I like the old time [D7]worship of the [G]Lord

Preaching in those [C]good old days [G]were filled with a holy flame
[C]Preaching for the [G]souls of men and [A7]not for worldly [D7]fame   
[G]Under such old [C]fashion preaching [G]sinner fell to pray
[C]And the Lord [G]would save them in that [D7]good old fashion [G]way  

I like the old time [C]preaching praying [G]singing shouting
I like the old time [A7]reading of God's [D7]word   
[G]I like to hear those [C]old time Hallelu[G]jah stories
I like the old time [D7]worship of the [G]Lord

In these latter [C]days they say that there is [G]no use to pray
[C]All we need is to [G]think religion '[A7]tis a better [D7]way   
[G]But I'm here to [C]tell you brother [G]Jesus saves from sin
[C]In that old time [G]way He saved me [D7]He now dwells [G]within

I like the old time [C]preaching praying [G]singing shouting
I like the old time [A7]reading of God's [D7]word   
[G]I like to hear those [C]old time Hallelu[G]jah stories
I like the old time [D7]worship of the [G]Lord

Long ago when but a boy at old camp meeting time
How my heart would leap for joy to hear the old bells chime
Calling all the saints of God into the house of prayer
Oh such praying singing and shouting for the Lord was there

I like the old time preaching praying singing shouting
I like the old time reading of God's word
I like to hear those old time Hallelujah stories
I like the old time worship of the Lord

Preaching in those good old days were filled with a holy flame
Preaching for the souls of men and not for worldly fame
Under such old fashion preaching sinner fell to pray
And the Lord would save them in that good old fashion way

I like the old time preaching praying singing shouting
I like the old time reading of God's word
I like to hear those old time Hallelujah stories
I like the old time worship of the Lord

In these latter days they say that there is no use to pray
All we need is to think religion 'tis a better way
But I'm here to tell you brother Jesus saves from sin
In that old time way He saved me He now dwells within

I like the old time preaching praying singing shouting
I like the old time reading of God's word
I like to hear those old time Hallelujah stories
I like the old time worship of the Lord
