Crying in the Chapel
The Orioles Lyrics

You saw me crying in the chapel
The tears I shed were tears of joy
I know the meaning of contentment
I am happy with the Lord

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where all good people go to pray
I prayed the Lord that I'll grow stronger
As I live from day to day

I searched and I searched but I couldn't find
No way on earth to find peace of mind

Now I'm happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
Yes, we gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the Lord

You'll search and you'll search but you'll never find
No way on earth to find peace of mind

Take your troubles to the chapel
Get down on your knees and pray
Then your burdens will be lighter
And you'll surely find a way

OK, if you are "Theldon Gaither," then why is the name you post under James Whitmore III?

Im starting to think that Elvis Presley did cover song's


The black groups of the 50's, 60's and 70's were unbelievable. Such wonderful soul music. I'm not a fan of hip hop or rap, but I do love me some old school soul and funk.

@James Alford what i'm saying is that in terms of beauty you can't beat what Motown and the doo wops had to offer. It was true poetry and real artistry. The rap stuff and all that is the reflection of degeneracy in a culture once noble and prominent. You simply cannot claim 2pac was an artist. He couldn't command a song the way the temptations could. I understand im comparing two different things but one deserves all the credit in the world, the other deserves none of that

James Alford

@eman on can't agree with that, Gangsta Rap, or Rap in it's general definition and genre appeals to a certain demographic; Motown in it's peak appealed to those who came before the company and artist existed. Jim Nabors, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra covered Motown songs, and generations who weren't born until the 1980's and '90's have gravitated to the Motown Sound. Smokey, Diana, Stevie, Lionel, Four Tops, Temptations are still making millions in Royalties from songs they recorded 60 years ago, broke Rappers today are too many to count, why? Because the music has no sustainability.

@pgroove211 what the hell are you talking about? In your mind the gangster rap of the 90s is just as valid as the motown hits from the 60s? U crazy?
