The Carter Family

There's a church in the valley by the wildwood,
No lovlier place in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the dell.

(Oh! come, come, come, come,)
Come to the Church in the wildwood,
Oh, come to the church in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the dell.

How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning,
To list to the clear ringing bell.
It's tones so sweetly are calling,
Oh come to the church in the dell.

(Oh! come, come, come, come,)
Come to the Church in the wildwood,
Oh, come to the church in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the dell.

There, close by the side of a loved one,
'Neath the tree where the wild flowers bloom,
He sleeps, sweetly sleeps 'neath the willow,
Disturb not his rest in the tomb.

(Oh! come, come, come, come,)
Come to the Church in the wildwood,
Oh, come to the church in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the dell.

(Oh! come, come, come, come,)
Come to the Church in the wildwood,
Oh, come to the church in the dale,
No spot is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the dell.
