Blue Ridge Mountain Blues - Bill Monro
(Album: Bluegrass Special [Decca]; Monroe)


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'vegot those blue ridge mountain blues
And I stand right theere 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 possom
Where the corn top blossom
On that blue ridge far away

I see a window with the light
I see two heads of snowly 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 countaing
Still I crimb that mountain
Oh, that blue ridge far away
