​Oak Grove Church

This song is by Dry Branch Fire Squad.

There's an old church so dear, standing lonesome and still
And in memory it's still to me
A place still so sweet for I heard as a boy
The old hymn Near my God to thee
There I heard Daddy pray and I heard Mother sing
With the tears running down their face
Many now have passed on, who's souls there were saved
While we all sang Amazing Grace
There is still an Oak Grove where I played as a boy
And I'm sure there is still a well
And I know every spring sweetly still the birds sing
Some will nest in the old church bell

Oh, the wonderful, beautiful memories untold
Oh, the m-e-m-o-r-i-e-s, untold
Of an old fashioned church, yes Oak Grove Church of old
Oak g-r-o-v-e Church of old
Will live on till the end of time
For my wonderful, heavenly Saviour was there
S-a-v-i-o-r was there
Each time, yes each time that old church bell would toll
Each time the bell tolled
Looking for his lost sheep to find
