about

4. Undone in Sorrow :: Ola Belle Reed (Grassy Creek NC/Rising Sun MD). A woman who has inspired so many with her songs, her banjo playing and her voice. She can put you in her songs the moment she sings that first line, and can leave you feeling like you ARE the song, you LIVED the song. This is the power of any kind of good music, and Ola Belle has given us that kind of inspiration. This is one of our favorite songs of hers that seems to help console even some of our deepest sorrows.

lyrics

Over yonder in that graveyard
Where the wildflowers grow
Oh there they lay my own true lover
She’s gone from me forever more

Fairer than the sweetest flower
Restless as the wildest wind
Born with a love deep as the ocean
This was the girl that I did leave

I left her there back in those mountains
To see the world, riches to gain
Oh when I returned no earthly treasures
Could ease this heart so full of pain

There so high up on that mountain
‘Neath that little mound of clay
Oh, the girl that I returned to marry
So still among the flowers she lay

I’ll go away and I’ll wander
I’ll lay aside my earthly gains
And I’ll not end the man with riches
Undone in sorrow I’ll remain

Over yonder in that graveyard
Where the wildflowers grow
Oh there they lay my own true lover
She’s gone from me forever more
