Flatt & Scruggs

The Foggy Mountain Boys was an influential American bluegrass band founded by guitarist Lester Flatt and banjo player Earl Scruggs.

Preachin', prayin', singin' everywhere
Shouting the praises of His loving care
All of God's children seem to gather there
Preachin', prayin', singin' down on the public square

I was a stranger there intent upon my way
But when I saw the crowd, I had the urge to stay
I heard a welcome voice biddin' me to come and share
Their preachin', prayin', singin' down on the public square

Preachin', prayin', singin' everywhere
Shouting the praises of His loving care
All of God's children seem to gather there
Preachin', prayin', singin' down on the public square

I felt so much at home amid the happy throng
That came from far and near to praise His name in song
To lay their burdens down, forget their every care
And have an old time meeting down on the public square

Preachin', prayin', singin' everywhere
Shouting the praises of His loving care
All of God's children seem to gather there
Preachin', prayin', singin' down on the public square

Now as I journey on, think back on the day
I am convinced within, these folks have found the way
To put their hearts in song, just pray an earnest prayer
And leave the door bells ringin' down on the public square

Preachin', prayin', singin' everywhere
Shouting the praises of His loving care
All of God's children seem to gather there
Preachin', prayin', singin' down on the public square
Preachin', prayin', singin' down on the public square
