It being Sunday today, I post an appropriately devout item in the Momma 'n' Daddy series. Step up Ricky Skaggs - to sing 'Little Mountain Church House'. Here is part of the lyric (as corrected by me):
There's a little mountain church in my thoughts of yesterday,The high point of this song - which is anyway of a generally elevated musical level - is when Ricky sings the word 'high' in 'high soprano notes'.
Where friends and family gathered for the Lord.
There an old-fashioned preacher taught the straight and narrow way
For what few coins the congregation could afford.
Dressed in all our Sunday best, we sat on pews of solid oak,
And I remember how our voices filled the air,
How Momma sounded like an angel on those high soprano notes,
And when the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.
Looking back now, that little mountain church house,
Has become my life's cornerstone.
It was there in that little mountain church house
I first heard the word I based my life upon.
