[Verse]
           Bb
We used to come from miles around
    Eb/Bb  Bb
And have dinner on the ground
Bb7/D  Eb            Eb/G   Bb
underneath those old shade trees
                       Eb/Bb Gm
And sing the old songs in   shape-notes
Bb/D C7      C13   F7
In four-part harmony
      Bb              Eb/Bb  Bb
Like "He Set Me Free" and "He'll Pilot Me"
     D        D7  Gm
And "Anywhere is Home"
     Bb         Gm
How long has it been
                   C9      F13    Bb
Since you heard an old convention song?

[Chorus]
   Bb
I still (I still) love to hear (love to hear)
Bb7/D  Eb       Eb/G   Bb
Those old convention songs
                                   Gm
That I heard (that I heard) as a child (as a child)
         C    C9  C13 C7/G  F7
When we sang them all day  long
      Bb                 Eb/Bb Bb
Like "I'm A Gon-na Walk" and "Just a Little Talk"
   D          D7   Gm   F9
And "All the day long"
    Bb                      Gm
How long (how long) has it been (has it been)
                    C9     F13     Bb
Since you heard an old convention song

[Verse]
        Bb
Gospel songs today
Eb/Bb   Bb
have a lot to say
     Bb7/D    Eb              Eb/G   Bb
They lift you up when you're feeling down
                Eb/Bb   Gm
Some have a country flavor,
Bb/D   C7          C13     F7
      some have a modern sound
      Bb                Eb/Bb Bb
They all serve the need of   planting seeds,
     D               D7   Gm
so I know they can't go wrong
            Bb              Gm
But there's none so dear as when I hear
    C9      F13    Bb
an old convention song.

[Chorus]
   Bb
How long (How long) has it been (has it been)
Bb
since you heard "After a while"?
                               Gm
How long (How long) since you heard (since you heard)
C         C13   C7  F
"Give the World a Smile"?
F9   Bb
How long (How long) since you heard (since you heard)
     D              D7    Gm
"I'm Wing-in My Way Back Home"?
     Bb             Eb/Bb   Gm
How long (How long) has it been
                    C9     F13    Bb
since you heard an old convention song?
