I have the words to all the verses and chorus.  I can scan them on Friday and send them to you.  Is it the one that starts with, "Oh, I really wasn't one for going to church, you see.  But I went that night somehow, in spite of that."

By John W. Peterson

Well, I really wasn't one
For goin' to church you see
But I went that night somehow in spite of that
They ushered me in with a warm and friendly smile
And five rows back I sat

Five rows back I remember it well
The story of Jesus I heard them tell
They told about heaven and they warned of hell
I listened from five rows back

The words of the preacher-man
They were arrows of burning truth
They pierced my heart as he spoke so earnestly
He told how Jesus suffered, how He bled, how He died
And that he did it just for folks like you and me

Oh the choir was singing "Just As I Am"
I knew that I was lost, my life was a sham
So I came and I was washed in the blood of the Lamb
From five rows back that night I came

What a change, things are different now
Peace and happiness fill my heart
Jesus walks and talks with me each passing day
And I know that through the years of time
And through eternity l'll not forget the night
That my sins were washed away

I am a pastor the often will sing
Several years ago I had the tape track to Five Rows Back
It has worn out and I can not find the track anywhere now
It was a most requested song for me and now I am not able to sing it
because of the fact no one can play it for me
If anyone has the song on track of any kind please let me know
