THE NOTH CAROLINA HILLS
Oh, the North Carolina hills,
How majestic and how grand, V
With their summits bavhed in -glory
Like our Prince Immanuers'jiland,
Is it any wonder then, . . kt -
That my heart with rapture thri'.U
As I stand once more with loved ones
On those North Carolina hills? r
Oh, the hills! beautiful hills, :
How I love the North Carolina hills 1
If o'er sea, or1 land I roam still I think
of happy home,
And friends among the North Caro
Oh the North Carolina hills!
When my girlhood's hours were pass
ed; Where I often wander lonely,
And the future tired to cast,
Many are our visions bright,
Which the future ne'er fulfills;
But how sunny were my day dreams, "
On those North Carolina hills.
Oh the North Carolina hills!
How unchanged they seem to stand
with their summits pointed skyward,
To the Great Almighty's land;
Many changes I can see,
Which my heart with sadness fills,
But no change can be noticed in those
North Carolina hills.
Oh, the North Carolina hills!
I must bid you now adieu, in my home
beyond the mountains I shall ever
dream of you,
In the evening time of life.
If my fatheer only wills, I shall still
behold the vision o f those North
Carolina hills. 1
