OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four boys (girls) promenade once around the ring
Come on back, swing and whirl your girl
Join hands, circle to the left and then
Do an allemande left the corner of the hall and weave around the ring
Oh come to the church in the wildwood
Come to the church in the vale
There is nothing so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the vale


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, count me 4 now
Round the corner do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, let the boys run right
1/2 tag, scoot back, move on in tonight
Boys run around the girl, star thru
Pass thru, make a u-turn back
Swing that corner, promenade
There is nothing so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the vale

The Little Brown Church In The Vale
 
 

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

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

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

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

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 side of that loved one
To trees where the wild flowers bloom
When the farewell hymn shall be chanted
I shall rest by her side in the tomb

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

From the church in the valley by the wildwood
When day fades away into night
I would fain from this spot of my childhood
Wing my way to the mansions of light

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

Lyrics by William S. Pitts.
Recorded by Weatherwax Brothers Quartet; The Carter Family; others.
