He wakes up early in the mornin’
Puts on his only blue suit
He hasn’t quite mastered tyin’ his tie on
The way his sweet Sarah used to

It’s been years since he’s talked to the good Lord
He’s not sure he even knows how
But he won’t be mowin’ the front yard today
He goes to church on Sundays now

No, he don’t know the words to ‘The Old Rugged Cross’
But he sings them the best that he can
‘Cause he knows that his angel is up there in Heaven
And he sure wants to see her again

For thirty-one years they were married
She never could get him to go
Now he’s up bright and early
There by 9:30 and sits on the very front row

And he bows his head with the members
And he shouts Amen good and loud
If only his Sarah could see him today
He goes to church on Sundays now

No, he don’t know the words to ‘The Old Rugged Cross’
But he sings them the best that he can
‘Cause he knows that his angel is up there in Heaven
And he sure wants to see her again

His kids can’t believe how he’s changin’
They tell him their mama’d be proud
And he’s always askin’ them all to go with him
He goes to church on Sundays now

No, he don’t know the words to ‘The Old Rugged Cross’
But he sings them the best that he can
‘Cause he knows that his angel is up there in Heaven
And he sure wants to see her again

He woke up early this mornin’
He goes to church on Sundays now
