Blue Ridge Mountain Blues
Bessie Lee Mauldin, Horace "Benny" Williams, Franklin G. Buchanan, Tony Ellis, Bill Monroe, Haro Stanley
When I was young in my prime I left my home in Caroline Now all I do is sit and pine For all the folks I left behind I've got those blue ridge mountain blues And I stand right there to say My grip is packed to travel And I'm scratching gravel For that blue ridge far away I'm gonna stay right by my Ma I'm gonna do right by my Pa Lay around the cabin door No work on worry anymore I've got those blue ridge mountain blues What to see my old day tray What to hunt the possum Where the corn top blossom On that blue ridge far away I see a window with the light I see two heads of snowy white It seems I can hear them both recite Where is my wondering boy tonight I'm got those blue ridge mountain blues And I stand right here to say Every day I'm counting Still I climb that mountain Oh, that blue ridge far away
