Mountain Windsong
Hear a Sample of MOUNTAIN WINDSONG in:
Wind blows from down the hills
Carrying her song
She loves a man from there
Even though he’s gone


She never walked on the Trail of Tears
Her heart knows where you are
Her love for him will last
Longer than the stars


He vowed he would return
No matter what the cost
Fighting through every fear
He’d get back what he lost


Though he walked through the Trail of Tears
His heart knows where you are
His love for her will last
Longer than the stars


Riding back through their old woods
Familiar though it seems
He looked up to see her there
The woman of his dreams
Ooh


Wind blows from down the hills
Carrying their song
Cherokee woman and man
Home where they belong


They won’t forget their Trail of Tears
They’re happy as they are
Their love for life will last
Longer than the stars
Longer than the stars
Longer than the stars


Harmony Vocal: Gary Bennett
Acoustic Guitar: Chuck Mead
Banjo, Fiddle: Don Herron

ABOUT MOUNTAIN WINDSONG

Cherokee historian and Western Spur award-winning writer Robert J. Conley has written many books in his time. One of my personal favorites is "Mountain Windsong," which tells the story of Oconeechee and Waguli, two Cherokee lovers who are separated by the Trail of Tears. His book not only weaves a wonderful tale -- it gives a heartbreaking, historically accurate account of the Trail and how it devastated the Cherokee, Creek, Seminole and Chickasaw people. My ancestors walked this Trail and I can't even imagine the pain they went through. However, they did survive, as did thousands of others. I will always be grateful to them! Don Herron, Chuck Mead and Gary Bennett from BR549 add their considerable talents to this track.
