[chordpress float=”none” format=”yes” hbnotation=”no” interactive=”no” transpose=”0″]They’ve Got The Church Outnumbered
Written and recorded by The Louvin Brothers
[G]When you pick up the paper
And [C]read the daily [G]news
Of how the world is sinking
The [A7]downward way they [D7]choose
The [G]ballparks and theaters
Have [C]took the silent [G]stage
They’ve [C]got the church [G]outnumbered
It [D7]makes you want to [G]pray
They’ve got the church outnumbered
Through[C]out this troubled [G]land
They seek not for the Savior
His [A7]words to under[D7]stand
Their [G]pleasure being carefree
And [C]resting high in [G]fame
They’ll [C]have the church out[G]numbered
When [D7]Jesus comes [G]again
We read about the big shows
With [C]tickets in ad[G]vance
We see the millions gather
They [A7]wouldn’t miss the [D7]chance
The [G]faithful few are ready
His [C]mansion God can [G]share
But [C]when they get to [G]heaven
They won’t [D7]be outnumbered [G]there

Who is The Louvin Brothers?
– The Louvin Brothers were an American musical duo composed of brothers Ira (April 21, 1924 – June 20, 1965) and Charlie (July 7, 1927 – January 26, 2011) Louvin (nÃ© Loudermilk). The brothers are cousins to John D. Loudermilk, a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member.
The brothers wrote and performed secular country music, as well as fire-and-brimstone gospel music. Ira played virtuoso mandolin and generally sang lead vocal in the tenor range, while Charlie played rhythm guitar and offered supporting vocals in a lower pitch. They helped popularize the vocal technique of close harmony in country and country-rock.After becoming regulars at the Grand Ole Opry and scoring a string of hit singles in the late 1950s and early ’60s, the Louvin Brothers broke up in 1963 due in large part to Charlie growing tired of Ira’s addictions and reckless behavior. Ira died in a traffic accident in 1965. They were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001, and Charlie died of cancer in 2011. Rolling Stone ranked the Louvin Brothers No. 4 on its list of the 20 Greatest Duos of All Time.
