Arlo Guthrie - Valley To Pray Lyrics



I went down in the valley to pray
Learnin' about the good old way
And who would wear the starry crown
Oh Lord, show me the way

Oh Brother, let's go down
Come on down, don't you want to go down
Oh Brother, lets go down
Down in the valley to pray

As I went walkin in the valley to pray
Learnin' about the good old way
And who would wear the starry crown
Oh Lord, show me the way

Oh Father, let's go down
Come on down, don't you want to go down
Oh Father, lets go down
Down in the valley to pray

I went out walkin' on the mountain to pray
Learnin' about the good old way
I went up on the mountain and I just had to say
Oh Lord, show me the way

Oh Sister, let's go down
Come on down, don't you want to go down
Oh Sister, lets go down
Down in the valley to pray

As I went down in the valley to pray
Studyin' about the good old way
And who will wear the starry crown
Oh Lord, show me the way

Oh, let's go down
Come on down, don't you want to go down
Oh, let's go down
Down in the valley to pray

Arlo Guthrie Valley To Pray Comments
  1. jennifur sun

    this song always made me happy. LOVE that auto harp wish I could find a copy of this song

  2. Moggy

    Great record!

  3. Robert Laberge

    Arranged divinely by Van Dyke Parks. On vinyl, the low bass fundamentals were tremendous. There's an autoharp on the left side.

  4. jennifur sun

    do you know who played on this song?

  5. GL AnnapolisTeam

    What a great record! I remember hearing this on the radio in fall of 1970.
