The Church in the Wildwood

Song Author William S. Pitts Lyrics by: William S. Pitts Performer: Tennesee Ernie Ford Submitted by: Anonymous


[G]There's a church in the valley by the wild[D7]wood   
No lovelier spot in the [G]dale
No [C]place is so dear to my [G]childhood
As the [D7]little brown church in the [G]vale

Come to the church by the wildw[D7]ood   
Oh come to the church in the [G]vale
No [C]spot is so dear to my [G]childhood
As the [D7]little brown church in the [G]vale

There close by the side of that [D7]loved one
'Neath the tree where the wild flowers [G]bloom
When [C]farewell hymns shall be [G]chanted
I shall [D7]rest by her side in the [G]tomb

Come to the church by the wildw[D7]ood   
Oh come to the church in the [G]vale
No [C]spot is so dear to my [G]childhood
As the [D7]little brown church in the [G]vale

How sweet on a clear Sabbath [D7]morning
To listen to the clear ringing [G]bells
Its [C]tones so sweetly are [G]calling
Oh [D7]come to the church in the [G]vale

Come to the church by the wildw[D7]ood   
Oh come to the church in the [G]vale
No [C]spot is so dear to my [G]childhood
As the [D7]little brown church in the [G]vale

There's a church in the valley by the wildwood
No lovelier spot in the dale
No place is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the vale

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

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

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

How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning
To listen to the clear ringing bells
Its tones so sweetly are calling
Oh come to the church in the vale

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