Story

My childhood was great. There are no regrets to being born in that small rural area of the Appalachians. My dad, a coalminer, my mother, and six siblings, at times seem to be a dream of another life and day. As I'm growing older, I realize just how special it really was.

Lyrics

A muddy river's winding through the mountain cracks Coal trains have dusted the river banks black It's hard to make a dollar last a day But in the eyes of a child it can go a long way And I remember the creek boy blues Hot summer days there was nothing to do We were skinny dipping in a swirl hole pond Skip school on Fridays we were scare to go home And all these memories hold me so close Rock me mother you're the one that I love most Down through these valleys oh sun please stay And shine your light upon the Appalachian way You can smell wild flowers all the day long Baptisms on Sunday the old graveyard songs The King James bible the words in red My daddy said that he believed every word it said And all these memories hold me so close Like the Father the Son and Holy Ghost Down through these valleys oh sun please stay And shine your light upon The Appalachian way Blackberry vine well it's a copperhead den But they're sweet and ripe like a young girlfriend And I love this music it fills the mountain sky It'll always be in my heart until the day I die And all these memories hold me so close The Carter Family and Bill Monroe Down through these valleys oh sun please stay And shine your light upon The Appalachian way And all these memories hold me so close Rock me mother you're the one that I love most Down through these valleys oh son please stay And shine your light upon the Appalachian way Lord shine your light The Appalachian way
