“The Old Country Church”

By Mike Polka

Old Country Church

Way out in the country,

not far from ox & yoke,

stands the old country church

built of sturdy oak.

Now the people go to the city church

and the country church is no more.

Shuttered are the windows

rusty hinges on the door.

Oh, how I long to walk again once more

down that road, of hickory & birch

to worship God in the peacefulness

of the old country church.
