We had a nice jam last night. We always make a point of singing a few Louvin Brother's tunes and this was one of them.

The Family Who Prays Never Shall Part
Recorded by the Louvin Brothers
Written by Ira and Charlie Louvin
[3/4 time]

G                         C        G
The Family who prays will never be parted
                                    D7
Their circle in heaven unbroken shall stand
           G        C             G
God will say enter my good faithful servants
                    D7          G
The family who prays  never shall part

               C           G
Satan has parted fathers and mothers
                                     D7
Filling their hearts with his envy and hate
            G        C       G
Heading their pathways down to destruction
                          D7         G
Leaving their children like orphans to stray

Repeat #1

                     C          G
Wars and Tornadoes are taking our loved ones
                                 D7
Leaving us tearful with sad aching hearts
           G         C        G
But we shall join them over the river
                        D7          G
For the family who prays  never shall part

repeat #2
