    There’s an unrelated bluegrass gospel song by the same title, which I like pretty well.

      I actually listened to this one as well before I went with The Caravans. I, of course, know Flatt and Scruggs from The Beverly Hillbillies.

      I did like this but I liked the other a bit more.

    Ya, I have versions by the Carters, Doc Watson, Stanley Brothers – so a pretty old song. Lyrics talk about kicking people out of church for chronic transgressions. The only song in my entire collection that has such lyrics so it is unusual in that sense. I chuckle about the last line that talks about women with “paint on their face” (make-up I assume). Some of the really fundamental churches (still) discourage make-up for married women.

      Many of my generation are at ages where we don’t wear make-up. It takes too much time to apply and remove, and we are retired so no work attire in any way, face or body. Also, several of us have chosen grey hair to dyed hair. We’d be most welcome!

    Married women are also required to wear ankle length dresses. And put your hair in a bun if it’s long enough. Holiness Church and Assembly of God churches. At least you can always tell where the go. I do have it on good authority (from surgery center nurses) that they can wear fancy underwear. Thought that was amusing.
