F                                            C                                                                         
They're trying to take the Bible out of our schoolrooms
                                             F
They say our children can't give thanks with prayer
                                      Bb
But if they take our Bible out of our school rooms
     C                              F
Then how can this old world get anywhere
      Bb                                 F  
Don't let them take the Bible out of our school rooms
F                                            C                                       
Don't let them close the door of your childs heart
       F                            F7     Bb
Don't let them rob  our children of salvation
       C                                    F
If you do we're going to lose them from the start
F                               C
Our leaders had a meeting up in Washington
                                           F
They write that laws that keep our country free

      Bb                                 F  
Don't let them take the Bible out of our school rooms

       C                                    F
If you do we're going to lose them from the start
F                                      C
If it's right to allow liquor in most counties
                                         F
On the newstand see the sinful pictures there
                                     Bb
If it's right for moving pictures of corruption
     C                                 F
Dear God how can we say it's wrong for prayer
      Bb                                 F  
Don't let them take the Bible out of our school rooms
F                                            C                                       
Don't let them close the door of your childs heart
       F                            F7     Bb
Don't let them rob  our children of salvation
       C                                    F
If you do we're going to lose them from the start
