Building Temple In Heaven-crd   Hank Williams

This is the work of Tim Ausburn. File under Hank Williams

This is the same as, "A Home In Heaven," except temple replaces home.
Demo by Hank in 1949, overdubbed and released after Hank died.


Key C         Writer, Hank Williams

(C) Around me (G7) many are (C) building,
(F) Temples of beauty and (C) wealth,
But (F) what of a temple in (C) Heaven,
Where will you (G7) live after (C) death.  (C7)

Are you (F) building a temple in (C) Heaven,
To live in when this life is (G7) o'er,
Will you (C) move to that (F) beautiful (C) city,
And live with (G7) Christ ever-(C) more.

Like the second and third verses of "Home" the
second verse here has a different chord progression.

(C) So long is the (F) road that (C) leads you,
To that beautiful land up (G7) there,
Is (C) work on your (F) temple com-(C) pleated,
Death may (G7) be ling'rin' (C) near.

Repeat chorus:

On the overdub, an instrumental "turnaround"
was added here and the chorus repeated.
