Blue Ridge Mountain Blues lyrics

When I was young and 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 them Blue Ridge Mountain blues And I stand right here and say My grip is packed to travel and I’m scratchin’ gravel For that Blue Ridge far away Well I’m gonna stay right by my Pa And I’m gonna do right by my Ma I’ll hang around that cabin door No work or worry anymore I’ve got them Blue Ridge Mountain blues Gonna see my old dog Trey Gonna hunt the possum where the corn tops blossom On that Blue Ridge far away Now I see a window with a light I see two heads of snowy white It seems I hear them both recite Where is my wandering boy tonight I’ve got those Blue Ridge Mountain blues And I stand right here to say Every day I’m counting ’til I find that mountain On that blue ridge far away
