​Save A Little Place For Me

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Old Country Church (1969).

Oh Lord I'm just a poor man but I've worked like a slave
I may not know what pleased me until I'm in my grave
I've lived without a lot of things I've only got one plea
When I've work my last day Lord save a little place for me

All of my life I've worked so hard I've never had the best
You sent your love to give me strength so I've got by on less
So save your best for all the rest your love is all I need
In the corner of your heaven Lord save a little place for me

It's true I've worked this poor land faced the hardships with a smile
'Cause it's been worth each tired night just to feed my wife and child
I'd gladly die a pauper Lord to reach eternity
To find out up in heaven Lord there's a little place for me

All of my life I've worked so hard I've never had the best
You sent your love to give me strength so I've got by on less
So save your best for all the rest your love is all I need
In the corner of your heaven Lord save a little place for me
