Recorded by Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons
Written by Carl Story
[C]Traveling down a country road [F]on a Sunday [C]morn
Saw a crowd gathered at the creek [D7]at a little country [G7]farm
[C]I thought that I’d go closer so [F]I might see and [C]hear
Why they looked so happy there [G7]without a thing to [C]fear
Was a good old country baptizing [F]I was at that [C]day
They’d preach awhile and sing awhile [D7]then they’d all kneel down and [G7]pray
[C]God’s spirit seemed to fill the air and [F]every soul was [C]meek
At a good old country baptizing [G7]down at the [C]creek
I heard an old and gentle voice [F]sing right in the [C]end
We’re so glad to have you here [D7]welcome down my [G7]friend
[C]We’ve had a big revival sir [F]down to it all [C]week
Now we’re having a baptizing [G7]down at the [C]creek
Well among them happy be among [F]that happy [C]throne
See them all go air their sins [D7]while they’re at their [G7]own
[C]They seem to be saying with a [F]smile upon their [C]face
I’m ready now to move along [G7]to my resting [C]place[/chordpress]
