COUNTRY BOY 02 - BROTHER, DO YOU TAKE TIME TO PRAY lyrics

(Truman A. Keeney, Rusty Harp, Jimmy Dickens)

There's a land in the east, there's a land in the west
Where our many friends have gone far away
Oh, we often grief about them, wonder if we'll never see them
But Brother, do we take the time to pray

Chorus:
To the land in the east, to the land in the west
To the whole wide world I say
There will be a day of judgement when our Father dear will call us
Brother, do you take the time to pray

There are those who like to rebel, there are those who like to gamble
They won't work unless they are payed for ev'ry hour
Yes, we growl about our wages and about our cast of livin'
But we never try to help it with a prayer

Chorus:

We're allowed so much of this, we're allowed so much of that
And our pleasures one by one have gone astray
All because there's someone livin' who don't think there'll be a judgement
And they'd rather start a war than kneel and pray

Chorus:
