Gospel songs by Rex Allen

When I was young, a friend had a record of Rex Allen singing gospel songs. One of the songs I heard  was on my mind the other day, but I can’t find it on the YouTube. Anyway, here are some other songs I found, and I hope they are a blessing to you.

1. Take me Lord

I remember hearing this song on the record.

2. Just a closer walk with Thee – Gospel song by Rex Allen

3. Crying in the chapel

I am presuming that this is where Elvis got this song from, and made it into a hit.

4. Wasted years – with lyrics

For many years we sang this chorus at church meetings. A very important message.

5. Daddy sang bass

I first heard this one sung by Johnny Cash. Written by Carl Perkins. In the song it mentions how his brother had died. From what I have read, Carl was on the way to New York to promote his song ‘Blue suede shoes’ when they had a car accident and his brother got killed.

6. I won’t need my six gun in heaven

The cowboy side of him.

7. I thank the Lord

This is actually a love song, but it is good that he is thanking the Lord.
