Appalachia Through My Eyes – Over Yonder In The Graveyard

(photo by Lonnie Dockery; words by Ola Belle Reed)

Another tease about the video that was filmed at Little Cataloochee Baptist Church in the Smoky Mountain National Park:


Over yonder in the graveyard  Where the wild wild flowers grow Oh there they laid my own true lover He’s gone from me forever more


I’m trying to hurry it up. I worked on it till the master (Paul) took over. Surely it won’t be much longer before the video is finished.

    They died only to our eyes. Our loved ones only sleep, waiting to wake and hold us close again. All have booked passage on the same journey, and the farther our ship sails from the familiar shore the closer it draws to the other. At last we shall hear the happy shout, “Here he comes!”

    A small family graveyard of about 20 graves adjoins the southeast side of our property. They’re real quiet neighbors, course we expected them to be cause when we first moved in, I went up to the fence and very respectfully told them, “You stay on your side of the fence, I’ll stay on mine and we’ll all get along.” It’s worked pretty well, not a peep out of them since we moved in.
    God bless.

    Very much looking forward to this! Hey, Tipper, I finally got my Hummingbird Banding report on my Blog! Since my love of hummingbirds started in North Carolina, I thought you might like to read about banding the little darlings!

    We’re anxiously waiting for the
    next video. I remember going to
    some of the old country churches
    when I was young. Back then I didn’t know what acoustics was, but those old gospel quartets sure
    could make the chills run up and
    down your back. That was a Touch of the Master! …Ken
