about

Bill Monroe/Peter Rowan song - we just love to sing it....it's very cool

lyrics

The wind is blowing cross the mountains
Down on the valley way below.
It sweeps the grave of my darling
When I die that's where I want to go.

Lord send the angels for my darling
And take him to that home on high
I'll wait my time out here on earth love
And come to you when I die.

I hear a voice out in the darkness
It moans and whispers through the pines
I know it's my sweetheart a calling
I hear him through the walls of time

Our names are carved upon the tombstone
I promised you before you died
Our love will bloom forever darling
When we rest side by side.
