Country Gospel Songs by Dottie Rambo

I think the first country gospel song I ever heard that was written by Dottie Rambo was ‘Remind me.’ I heard it on a Jimmy Swaggart record that Pastor Marks had lent me back in the 60’s, when I was at college in Salisbury, Rhodesia.

1. Tears will never stain the streets of that city

2. Too much to gain to lose

I first heard this song on a Jerry Lee Lewis country gospel record that I bought at a shop in Pretoria.

3. I just came to talk with you Lord – A Country Gospel Song by Dottie Rambo

4. Sheltered in the arms of God

This is one of my wife’s favorite songs. I bought her a record of Jimmy Swaggart singing it before we got married. At the time, she was living in Swaziland.

5. If that isn’t love

I seem to recall hearing that Elvis was going to do a whole album of Dottie Rambo’s songs to help her financially, but died before he had the chance. Apparently, this was the only song of hers that he recorded.

6. I’ve never been this homesick before

I was having meetings with Pastor Eldon King in Arkansas back in 1983, and he had a record of Jimmy Swaggart and John Starnes singing this song. I loved it so much. I was so homesick for Africa. This song dug way down deep inside my heart. A few years later we went back to Africa, and I sung this song a lot!

7. I’m gonna leave here shoutin’

8. Mama’s teaching angels how to sing

9. He looked beyond my fault and saw my need

This song was also on the Jerry Lee Lewis record that I had.

10. For what earthly reason

11. I will glory in the cross

12. Stand by the river – with Dolly Parton

13. New shoes

14. We shall behold Him

15. In the valley He restoreth my soul

One time we were having meetings in the Stutterheim area, and my wife wrote her own song on this subject.

16. Pass me not

17. She testifies about her life

18. Her angel experiences

19. Songs she wrote to and for her mother

20. Holy Spirit Thou art welcome in this place

This is such an anointed song. Dottie Rambo sure wrote a lot of good old country gospel songs.

I still sing some of Dottie Rambos country gospel songs like: ‘A prisoner of love.’ Also another one that says: ‘When I’m down, when I’m down on the ground, when my heart is filled with fear and doubt, then I lift up my head, and He lifts up my heart, and my troubles they all roll away.’ When I was in Africa, I had lots of their gospel records. Another one I loved went like this: ‘Mama always had a song to sing, she taught us that a melody could change most anything, so I’ll wipe away my tears, Mama sing me Home sweet home, and nearer my God to Thee, nearer to Thee.’ God bless y’all.
