The Valley Of Peace

There’s an old broken lock on the old cabin door
The cracks and the holes in your cabin floor
It’s a tumbled down shack how I long to go back
And dwell in that shack evermore

   Peace peace the valley of peace
   Where no sorrows are known
   Like a heaven yes heaven to me it seems
   Peace the valley my home

Though an old broken window
the light brightly shines
It twinkles and shines through the honeysuckle vines
By the old rustic well is my sweet little Nell
And for me I know how she pines

In the parlor a fire is burning so bright
The old rocking chair is empty tonight
That tumbled down shack is a palace to me
And that’s where I’m longing to be
