  1. You see I just can’t live without her,
    and I’m her only boy.
    She grew up outside McHenry,
    in Johnsburg, Illinois

  2. In the days of the old covered wagons,
    where they camped on the flats for the night;
    With the moon shinning dim on the old canyon rim,
    they watched for that Brown Mountain light

    High, high on the mountain, and deep in the canyon below
    It shines like the crown of an angel, and fades as the mists comes and goes.
    Way over yonder, night after night until dawn,
    A lonely old slave comes back from the grave,
    Searching, searching, searching, for his master who’s long gone on.

    Many years ago a southern planter
    Came hunting in this wild world alone
    It was then so they say that the planter lost his way
    And never returned to his home

    His trusting old slave brought a lantern
    And searched day and night but in vain
    Now the old slave is gone but his spirit lingers on,
    And the lantern still casts its light

  3. You got em Dave! Congrats!

  4. a man without a cane
    a child who cannot run
    Portland without the rain
    a flower without the sun

    Mike Droho & the Compass Rose!
