The Little Mountain Church
Carl Jackson & Jim Rushing
There's a little mountain church in my thoughts of yesterday
Where friends and family gathered for the Lord
There an old fashioned preacher, taught the straight and narrow way
For what reforms the congregation could afford.
Dressed in all our sunday-best, we sat on pews of solid oak
And I remember how our voices filled the air
How mama sounded like an angel on those high soprano notes
And when the roll is call yonder, I'll be there.
Looking back now that little mountain church house
Has become my life's cornerstone
It was there in the little mountain church house
I first heard the word I based my life upon.
At the all day sunday singings and dinner on the ground
Many were the souls that were revived
While the brothers and the sisters who'd gone on to glory land
slept in peace in the maple grove near by.
