For the record, here are the lyrics. I see the song was written by Beth Nielsen Chapman. Many of her songs show a wonderful insight.
It's on a 1990 Waylon Jennings CD called The Eagle, but I don't see a recording by Beth Nielsen Chapman. She has a lovely voice, so it would be nice to hear her sing it.

OLD CHURCH HYMNS AND NURSERY RHYMES

written by Beth Nielsen Chapman

performed by Waylon Jennings.



Capo on the 2nd fret.





Verse 1:

          A            D      A                  E         A

        Blow on you restless wind, up to your old tricks again.

         A                  E                   A                E          A

        Bear down you Texas sun, you make the deserts dry and the brush fires run.

                         D      A                         E         A

        Splintered wood rusty chains, this old front porch swing remains.

          A                E          A                   E       A   

        A pendelum of memories, goes back and forth on a summer breeze.





Chorus:

                D                     A   

        Singing old church hymns and nursery rhymes

              E                   A

        From the days way back before my time.

                D                   A

        With a little child upon my knee

              E

        Singing every sweet word back to me.

              D             A

        Look how far I had to come

            E                   A

        To get back where I started from.

                D

        With a child's wisdom passin' time

            A                         E       A      

        Singing old church hymns and nursery rhymes.







Verse 2:

             A                  D         A                      E      A

        I've run the race I've walked the wire,I paid the price of my desire

             A                         E       A             E       A

        And the only time I've known it all, is just before I took a fall.

            A          D       A                E          A

        So howl you lone coyote song, fade to sapphire sky of dawn.

             A                E       A             E       A

        Count me in the lucky men, to send the world around again.







Chorus.

I'm bringing this thread back for one more try. Maybe someone out there can help me with the melody. Lyrics are plentiful but I would like to hear it too. Jeep
