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 Contributed by; Patron of Courier.
