EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Crying in the Chapel’ – Elvis Presley

What was the number one song in the UK on 17th June 1965?

Well hello Elvis, long time no see. Nevertheless, here he is again with Crying in the Chapel that got to number one for 1 week and then again on 1st July for another week.

Uh? Sorry? What was that? I seemed to have nodded off then. Oh Elvis, it’s a good job you had a pretty face. This is verrrry dull, but it’s lullaby quality might appeal to many. Especially insomniacs.


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 bumble people go to pray
I prayed the Lord that I’ll grow stronger
As I live from day to day
I searched (I searched) and I searched (I searched) but I couldn’t find
No way on earth to gain peace of mind
Now I’m happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord (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 the way (and you’ll surely find the way)
