Learn To Play Three Country Sad Songs

Three Country Sad Songs l Piano Diana


I started thinking on the abundance of the best country songs we have available to us. Many folks can relate to the heartfelt lyrics. The feelings and emotions behind a song have a universal appeal.

I wanted to share a few of these sad songs... lonely tunes if you will. I also thought of a few scriptures that can encourage someone who is going through some lonely times right now.

"The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you: He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deut. 31:8

Chords and Lyrics

        A7                              D7

Anytime you're feeling lonely
        G7                              C
Anytime you're feeling blue
         F              Fm              C
Anytime you feel down hearted
A7             D7                                          G7
That will prove your love for me is true.
         A7                                D7
Anytime you're thinking 'bout me
                     G7                        E7
That's the time I'll think of you
        A7                            D7
Anytime you say you want me back again
                     G7                                               C
That's the time I'll come back home to you.
Anytime your world is lonely
And you'll find true friends a few
Anytime you see a rainbow
That will be a sign the storm is through.
Anytime will be the right time
Anytime at all will do
Anytime you're sure you want only my love
That's the time I'll come back home to you.
--- Instrumental ---
Anytime you're thinking 'bout me
That's the time I'll think of you
Anytime you say you want me back again
That's the time I'll come back home to you...

"I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you." John 14:18

Crying in the Chapel l Chords and Lyrics

2. Crying in the Chapel

"Crying in the Chapel" is a song written by Artie Glenn for his son Darrell to sing. Darrell recorded it while still in high school in 1953.

Time: 4/4 (Fox Trot or Swing)

                                          F
You saw me crying in the chapel
                                                C
The tears I shed were tears of joy
                                          D7
I know the meaning of contentment
Dm7                               C
Now I am happy with the Lord.

                                      F
Just a plain and simple chapel
                                             C
Where humble people go to pray
                                            D7
I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger
Dm7                         C
As I live from day to day.


       F                           Fm
I've searched and I've searched
      C             D7
But I couldn't find
      Am7 
No way on earth
     D7                 G7
To gain peace of mind.

                                  F
Now I'm happy in the chapel
                                        C
Where people are of one accord
                           D7
We gather in the chapel
Dm7                                  C
Just to sing and praise the Lord.

Verse 2

                                    F
Every sinner looks for something
                                      C
That will put his heart at ease
                                   D7
There is only one true answer
Dm7                                C
He must get down on his knees.
                                           F
Meet your neighbor in the chapel
                                       C
Join with him in tears of joy.
                                                 D7
You'll know the meaning of contentment
Dm7                                         C
Then you'll be happy with the Lord.

          F                         Fm
You'll search and you'll search
      C                 D7
But you'll never find
Am7
No way on earth
     D7                  G7
To gain peace of mind.

                                         F
Take your troubles in the chapel
                                              C
Get down on your knees and pray
                                 D7
Your burdens will be lighter
Dm7                                 C
And you'll surely find your way...

Jesus said: "I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:20

Words and Music by Harlan Howard

Time: 4/4

C                                                           F
Heartache number one was when you left me
Dm G7                                           C
I never knew that I could hurt this way
                                                                    F                 Dm
And heartache number two was when you came back again
G7                                                      C
You came back and never meant to stay

Chorus
                                                                F                       Dm
Now I've got heartaches by the number, troubles by the score
G7
Ev'ry day you love me less
                                 C
Each day I love you more
                                                                   F                       Dm
Yes, I've got heartaches by the number, a love that I can't win
             G7
But the day that I'll stop counting
                                                  C
That's the day my world would end

Verse 2

C                                                               F
Heartache number three was when you called me
Dm    G7                                                 C
And said that you were coming back to stay
                                                   F                          Dm
With hopeful heart, I waited for your knock on the door
G7                                                       C
I waited, but you must have lost your way

Chorus

Listen to the Sandie Shaw recording. You may be interested in seeing All Saints singing this very

When Dionne Warwick sings this beautiful song, it stays with me always. It is one of the best songs
of the 60s.


Be sure and check out, Gospel Core Essentials.

Do you have a favorite Burt Bacharach song? I think my all-time favorite is Close To You.

All the best,

LadyD
