Found on the Internet somewhere but unchecked. My copy of the song is not handy. (Translation: I have no idea where it is) I'll alert Gene to this thread, maybe he can check it for us, as could anyone who has the Louvins' box set. It is on my list of things to get.

Ira & Charlie Louvin, (Loudermilk) 1955

CHORUS: Love thy neighbor as thyself.
Do unto him as you'd have him do to you.
Give him things that you can do without to help him live.
Love thy neighbor as thyself and he will love you too.

Now, this old world could be a lonesome place without a friend.
We need each other every day. Together we can win.
There's a little good in every man. Don't count and see his faults.
And a precious deed that you might do may change his inward thoughts. CHORUS

Well, I once knew a couple of fellers near my old homestead.
And I just wish that all the world could live the way they did.
They'd swap off work and lend each other money, mules, and plows.
And I've seen 'em many a time dividing milk from one old cow. CHORUS

We need old timey neighborhoods, with hearts that's free of greed.
God make us good old fashioned folks who'll be a friend indeed.
If you want a friend, then be a friend. Do not let charity slack.
Do your deeds without a price, someone will pay you back. CHORUS
