“This was a great article and I just love some of these old ‘Spooky Tales’ as it be, and I get reminded of a song, not sure of the originator of who wrote it but I have always liked the song, and I think it was about a mountain in North Carolina, the version that I am familiar with was by Bluegrass singer Charlie Moore, and the song was titled I think ‘The Brown Mountain Light’, Maybe some of you folks could let me know if you have heard of the song, or know it’s origin, I would greatly appreciate it, Thanks, Will.”
