They Tore the Old Country Church Down

This song is by The Browns and appears on the album The Old Country Church (1967).

Oh, they tore the old country church down
Built a big new church way up town
With the steeple so high it reaches to the sky
And pride has slipped in where love should have been.

Oh, I long just once more to enter the door
Of that humble place in the dell
Where the spirit once fell and God saved my soul from hell
In that little country church over there.

Oh, they tore the old country church down
Built a big new church way up town
With the steeple so high it reaches to the sky
And pride has slipped in where love should have been.

They no longer kneel and pray in the old fashion way
They just stand up there tall and proud
They don't sing about the cross
Or the vlood that Jesus lost
In that big new church way up town.

Oh, they tore the old country church down
Built a big new church way up town
With the steeple so high it reaches to the sky
And pride has slipped in where love should have been.

There is nothing wrong with that church a way up town
It's the members that have let God down
If they'd humble themselves and pray they would hear from God
Today in that big new church way up town.

Oh, they tore the old country church down
Built a big new church way up town
With the steeple so high it reaches to the sky
And pride has slipped in where love should have been.
