Sunday Morning Mountain Gospel Music 18

Standing Room Only
Loretta Lynn, a native of Johnson County, Kentucky

Standing Room Only

Standing room only, not even room to kneel and pray
Standing room only on the Judgment Day

Last night I had an awful dream that the end of time had come
The trumpet had been sounded and life on earth was done
An angel stood one foot on land, and the other foot on sea
And as I tried to kneel and pray a voice said unto me

There's standing room only, it's too late now to pray
There's standing room only, this is the Judgment Day

People filled each church and churchyard just as far as I could see
I heard a pitiful cry for mercy and then I realized it was me
I saw the Savior then appear as He split the eastern sky
I saw tears of joy on a Christian's face and I heard the sinners cry

And as I tried to touch His hand with one last people plea
I cried again have mercy, have mercy, Lord, on me

The earth was burning all around, the world went up in smoke
And as the flames engulfed me, thank God I awoke
Then I got out of bed and got down on my knees
And you should've heard me pray

Cause in my dream I witnessed God's great Judgment Day
Standing room only on God's great Judgment Day
