On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame; 
     G         C   G               C       D7  C           D             D7          G

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross, till my trophies at last I lay down; 
      G            G7         C      Am    G              D         G     C

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true; its shame and reproach gladly bear; 
          G       C    G         C    D7  C               D        D7        G
Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away, where His glory forever I’ll share.

And I’ll cherish the old rugged cross, till my trophies at last I lay down; 
      G            G7         C      Am    G              D         G     C
I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it some day for a crown.

I will cling to the old rugged cross, and exchange it some day for a crown.

About the artist behind The Old Rugged Cross:

Alan Eugene Jackson (born 17 October 1958 in Newnan, Georgia) is an American country singer-songwriter who has sold over 40 million records. He was influenced by the new traditional country of the 1980s, and he was one of the most popular country singers of the 1990s, blending both honky tonk and mainstream country sounds and penning many of his own hits. His success continued into the 2000s and his music became increasingly counterposed with that of more mainstream country acts that were moving toward a more pop music sound. He is the recipient and nominee of multiple awards. He was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
