The Carter Family

The Carter Family was a traditional American folk music group that recorded between 1927 and 1956. Their music had a profound impact on bluegrass, country, Southern Gospel, pop and rock musicians as well as on the U.S. folk revival of the 1960s. They were the first vocal group to become country music stars. Their recordings of songs as "Wabash Cannonball", "Can the Circle Be Unbroken", "Wildwood Flower" and "Keep On the Sunny Side" made them country standards. more »

Far away upon a hill on a sunny mountain side 
Many years ago we parted, my own true love and I 
From the sunny mountain side 

Oh she clung to me and trembled, when I told her we must part 
And she said don't go my darling I know twill break my heart 
When we two are far apart 

Carry me back to old Virginia back to my clinch mountain home 
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my old mountain home 

My mother's old and feeble and my father's getting gray 
Carry me back to old Virginia for its there I want to stay 

Oh I held her in my arms leaned her head upon my breast 
And I told her that I'd wed her when I come back from the west 
To my old clinch mountain home 

In my hand I hold a picture of the old home far away 
And the picture of my sweetheart 
I'm thinking of today 
On the sunny mountain side
