Greystone Chapel
written by Glen Sherley
performed by Johnny Cash
1968 Unichappell Music
Glen Sherley was an inmate at Folsum, and Cash performedÊhis song live on
the Johnny Cash show. Lyrics from
Inside the walls of a prison my body may be but the Lord has set my soul
There's a grestone chapel here at Folsum
a house of worship in this den of sin. [G]
You wouldn't think that[C] God had a place here at Folsum.
But heÊÊsaved t[F]he souls of many lost men[G].[C]
Now there's a greystone chapel here at Folsum.
Stands a hundred years all made of granite rock. [G]
It takes a ring[C] of keys to move here at Folsum
But the door t[F]o the house of God is never loc[G]ked. [C]
Inside the walls of a prison my body may be but my Lord has set my soul
There are men here that don't ever worship
There are men here who scoff at the ones who pray[G]
But I've got do[C]wn on my knees in that greystone chapel
And I thank [F]the Lord for helpin' me each [G]day[C]
Now there's a greystone chapel here at Folsum
It has a touch of God's hand on every stone[G]
It's a flow[C]er of light in a field of darkness, and it's givin' me the str[F]enght[G]
to carry on[C]
Inside the walls [F]of a prison my body may be but [C]my Lord has [F]set my soul[G]
tabbed by Tia.
