Appalachia Through My Eyes – In The Lonesome Woods Tonight

Today’s Spooky October entry-is a song. Written by Paul back in the day when he was in high school.

“Sundown and sorrow have found me Its come the end of the day Tomorrow won’t be any better for me I think I’ll just go away

Here in the woods The Deep Dark woods No one will hear me cry Here in the woods The Deep Dark woods no one will see me when I die

Trouble and terror surround me Here in the shadow where I lie Their never going to care enough to find me Out where the wild night birds cry

Here in the woods the Deep Dark woods No one will hear me cry Here in the woods The Deep Dark woods no one will see me when I die”

(written by Paul Wilson)


Don’t you wish you could pick a guitar like that? I do.

    Paul is my favorite guitar picker.
    Its his lead that makes the rest of the gang’s rhythm sound so good. Thanks for keeping alive

    great song – great picking. Love the way Pap kinda cocks his head, listens a beat or two and then comes right, following and complementing the melody. That’s God-given talent and I am so green with envy I look like the wicked witch (maybe even when I’m not green, too). I have a son who would love to pull up a chair and join in the pickin’.

    Hey Tipper: Much talent and passion in this performance! As a high school teacher, I found high schoolers to be mature thinkers and they run the wide spectrum of human emotions! Our needs are so complex yet we expect everyone to deal with these ‘ups and downs’ in the same way! Thanks for sharing!

    Yes, I wish I could play a guitar like Paul…I love to hear him and Pap too, for that matter, on the music sidebar…
    Such a sad song…but with a little hope built in with the upbeat tempo…
    Thanks Tipper and Paul
