“Church in the Wildwood”   by Charley Pride

There’s a church in the valley by the wildwood
No lovelier place in the dale
No place is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the dale.

How sweet, on a clear Sabbath morning
To listen to the clear ringing bells
Its tones, so sweetly, are calling
Oh, come to the church in the vale.

Oh, come, come, come, come
Come to the church in the wildwood
Oh, come to the church in the dale
No spot is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the vale.

There, close by the church in the valley
Lies one that I loved so well
She sleeps, sweetly sleeps, ‘neath the willow
Disturb not her rest in the vale.

There, close by the side of that loved one
‘Neath the trees where the wild flowers bloom
When the farewell hymns shall be chanted
I shall rest by her side in the tomb.

Oh, come, come, come, come
Come to the church in the wildwood
Oh, come to the church in the dale
No spot is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the vale.

The Middle of Nowhere, Washington   12 comments

The Hubby and I took a road trip along Washington’s Highway 20 as well as some other interesting roads that came along the way!  At times, what we saw was not what you would expect the state of Washington to look like!

The sites were breathtaking and thought-provoking as well…

I am participating in Mosaic Monday hosted by Mary at The Little Red House. Thank you Mary.

I have been curious about the grounds of the JM Cellars winery for  months and finally made the left hand turn onto the winding drive that leads up to this winery set deep behind the evergreens on the hilltop.  Not knowing what I would find as I walked around the grounds of this winery,  I was not disappointed!  BEAUTIFUL.  The best part was the trail behind the winery that led me to this view…
