The beautiful hills and valleys of Kentucky
Have many Churches scattered throughout
Filled with people of various faiths
Many God-fearing and devout

Daddy's side of the family was Pentecostal
While Mother's was of the Baptist faith
We kids went to both of the Churches
And learned to worship in the different ways

I still recall the preaching and singing
Pianos resounding with old gospel songs
All the prayer requests and the testimonies
And repentances of those in the wrong

Many lost souls gave their lives to the Lord
During camp meetings, services and revivals
I remember the comfort of God's embrace
In an era when families struggled for survival

I guess if I have to say so myself
We children all turned out pretty well
From the faith instilled in us, we know
The difference between Heaven and hell

I don't think it matters much where we worship
The most important thing is to get into Church
If we trust in Jesus and follow His teachings
We'll be in Heaven when we leave this Earth
