DOWN TO THE RIVER TO PRAY ~ A Three Chord Song



Down To The River To Pray

 
D
As I went down to the river to pray
                       G                                                 D
Studying about that good old way
            
And who shall wear the starry crown
            A7         G                   D
Good Lord  show me the way
 
A7                     G                     D
O sisters let's go down
G                   D          A7            D
Lets go down  come on down
A7                                     G                  D
Come on sisters lets go down
                              A7                   D
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way
 
O brothers lets go down
Let's go down come on down
Come on brothers lets go down
Down in the river to pray



As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the star and crown
Good Lord show me the way
 
O fathers lets go down
Let's go down, Come on down 
Come on fathers lets go down
Down in the river to pray
 
As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way
 
O mothers lets go down
Come on down don't you wanna go down
Come on Mothers lets go down
Down in the river to pray
 
As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the star and crown
Good Lord show me the way
 
O sinners lets go down
Lets go down, come on down
Come on  sinners lets go down
Down in the river to pray
 
As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the Robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way


This is one of my favorite songs.
If you have never hear Alison Krauss
in the movie Brother Where Art Thou?
then rent it . . . it is amazing. 

Have a blessed day,
Connie

  1. A beautiful song. Allison Krauss is from Champaign Illinois which was right down the road from my old home. We are all quite proud of her accomplishments.

  3. I have a dear friend I met on line now being six years or more.

    She is a Christian and her hubby as I and hubby are.

    Her brother in-law sent me for Christmas a cd they made.

    When I do my art in craft room I play it.

    They play blue grass also. Oh I love that.

    They play guitar, banjo, violin. One piece I really like is a song.
    Mothers tell your children about the love of Jesus. So when they grow up and the song goes on. My fav.

    Another song take it to the Lord. A child of the King. Well 16 songs to each cd.
    My oldest Granddaughter sings Gospel since she was knee high to a grasshopper.

    Has a beautiful voice.

    The young generation do videos on youtube . So she has made me some and I also taped her off my camera her and brother who sings with her and plays the guitar.

    My hubbys cousin in Holland was a beautiful singer .

    His name is Roomey Henstra. Some songs can come on Youtube free. He since has died sadly of a heartattack and the fans who he had many filled the soccer auditorium as the funeral home could not take them all..

    His son sings also now . He is carrying on in bars though. been praying he gets saved. So music is all in our family as well.

    So nice to know Connie you are a singer.

    My one brother could yodel . I loved to hear him. Can you Connie?

    My sister was a violinist and the Lord has her now in Heaven. She got hit by a car at 19 so very young.

    Many, moons ago.

    You asked me to drop in and say hi. I have and I added you. Perhaps you have not had time to look.

    That is what happens you ask people to drop in and then you get bombarded and do not go to theirs or make a comment on your own to them. So people get tired of the one person and not the sharing on another.

    I know I do. If I see once a month I fee that is an effort if not. Then I just forget them.


    Hugs
