A Beautiful Life

This is a Chuckwagon Gang song I fondly recall from my childhood days. I love hillbilly gospel music!

Youtube of the original 1936 recording session

Each day I'll do a golden deed
By helping those who are in need
My life on earth is but a span
And so I'll do the best I can.

Life's evening sun is sinking low
A few more days and I must go
To meet the deed that I have done
Where there will be no setting sun

To be a child of God each day
My light must shine along the way
I'll sing His praise while the ages roll
And strive to help some troubled soul.

While going down life's weary road
I'll try to lift some traveller's load
I'll try to turn the night to day
Make flowers bloom along the way.

Just lovely. Help me out here: why is it that "hillbilly" gospel, as you call it, warms the cockles of my heart while the southern gospel of Dottie Rambo et al turns me off so badly?

Tate Family,

It is all a matter of taste, in this case audio. We are all individuals!

I know people who cannot stand Hillbilly Gospel. Perhaps we need a little hillbily in our blood.
