“The Hills of Dan”


"The world is not one garden spot Or pleasure ground for man; Few are the spots that intervene Such as the Hills of Dan." The singer recalls the weather and the friends now buried; though he departs, he hopes in the end to "rest Amid the Hills of Dan"


Although the only collections of this seem to be from North Carolina, it *really* sounds Irish to me. - RBW
