Anyone have lyrics for Camp Meeting in July ? It's an old song that has the chorus:
    Glory Halleluia, see the fire in the sky,
    Glory Halleluia, camp meeting in July.

Many thanks.

Oh boy. I've been trying to get my friend Alan to stop by for two years, and the first time he needs our help, we choke.

I can't find it ANYWHERE. Joe Offer? ANYONE?

Dani

PS - don't give up, Alan. It's good to have you here.

"Camp Meeting in July" is not an old song. It is contemporary and was composed by Jerry Correll (I think). You can find it on a CD titled "Old Time Tuning" featuring the Wolfe Brothers String Band (Jerry's band).

You can find the CD by doing the following. 1. go to www.flat5.com. 2. Make sure you are at the home page and click on the "Online Store" link. 3. Choose the category "Bluegrass/Old-Time." 4. Scroll down to "Old Time Tuning". The "Real Audio Sample" link just happens to play the first verse of "Camp Meeting in July".

You won't regret owning the CD.

Not surprised at the lack of responses to your request. Don't seem to be many hard-core old time musicians here.

Here's a link to the page about the Wolfe Brothers' Old Time Tuning album.

And here's a direct link to the "Camp Meeting in July" RealAudio sample.

There's a better description of the album here but they don't have a sound sample.

I'm looking for the lyrics too. I've transcribed the following but need the blanks filled in. Any help would be appreciated.

Verse 1
When I was a little boy
I'd milk the cow in _________
I knew the time was getting near
Camp Meeting in July

We'd put on our Sunday best
Our shirts and pants all washed in lye
People'd come from miles around
Camp Meeting in July

Chorus
        Glory Hallelujah
        See the fire in the sky
        Glory Hallelujah
        Camp Meeting in July

        Glory Hallelujah
        We all sang _____ bye and bye
        Glory Hallelujah
        Camp Meeting in July

Instrumental aabb

Verse 2
A little girl with hair of gold
Held my hand beneath the sky
And later on I stole a kiss
Camp Meeting in July

We rode on in the buck board then
All snuggled down all cozy dry
My ______ was filled with childhood dreams
Cam Meeting in July

Repeat Chorus

I don't know if this is the same song/tune, but I found several recordings of CAMP MEETING ON THE FOURTH OF JULY at CDBaby. I listened to samples of a few of them, but they were all instrumentals without words. It sounds like an old-time string band tune.

Jim,
It is an old-time string band tune. Jerry Correll just added the words.

Corrections to Annie's lyrics:

In verse 1:
I'd milk the cow and clean the sty.

In the chorus:
We all sang "The By-and-By*."

The sample I listened to didn't have verse 2.

* I assume he means SWEET BY-AND-BY."

This is the missing verse:

A preacher preached the Holy Word
I listened to my sister cry
And Mama cooled her with a fan
Camp meeting in July

The Deacons had a baseball game
We all had ice cream apple pie
We all had a big old time
Camp meeting in July

(other than that your lyrics are correct!)

Actually, its an old tune and Casey Hash, who plays with the Wolfe Brothers and Jerry Correll, added the words.
