Peace In The Valley

Well there'll be Peace in the Valley
Peace on the mountain too
Before you tell a man he's got a splinter in his eye
You better pull the log out of you.

There's a pigeon of peace in my backyard
He's the wrong kind of bird but he tries so hard
One day I told him he should have been a dove
He cocked his head and looked at me with love and he sang

Peace in the Valley, he sang
Peace on the mountain too
before you tell a man he's got splinter in his eye
You better pull the log out of you.

Remember the time the painted lady in town
Came to church to lay her burden down
The preacher turned his back, the room was filled
And the words that she spoke, I remember them still
She said...

Peace in the Valley, she said
Peace on the mountain too
Before you tell a man he's got a splinter in his eye
You better pull the log out of you.

So if you meet a man in a pastel suit
With an alligator Bible to match his boots
You might not like his style too much
But if he could reach a soul you could never touch
You gotta say...

Peace in the Valley
Peace on the mountain too
Before you tell a man he's got a splinter in his eye
You better pull the log out of
Pull the log out of
Pull the log out of you.
