Lord, Build Me a Cabin           Key: A


Many (A)years I've been lookin' for a (D)place to call (A)home
But I've failed here to find it, so (B7)I must travel (E)on;
I (A)don't care for fine mansions on (D)earth's sinkin' (A)sand
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of (E)glory(A)land


(CHORUS)
Yes, build me just a cabin in the (D)corner of glory(A)land
In the shade of the tree of life that (B7)it may ever (E)stand
Where (A)I can just hear the angels sing and (D)shake Jesus' (A)hand
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of (E)glory(A)land


CHORUS


Blessed Lord, I'm not asking to (D)live in the (A)midst
For I know I'm not worthy of such (B7)splendor as (E)this
But I'm (A)asking for mercy while (D)humbly I (A)stand
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of (E)glory(A)land


CHORUS


I have many loved ones who have (D)gone on this (A)way
On that great final morning shall (B7)I hear them (E)say
Come and (A)join in the singin' and (D)play in our (A)band
Lord, build me a cabin in the corner of (E)glory(A)land
