Lyrics
I remember the face of an angel
Love that was faithful and true.
I left that dear boy in the mountains,
For a rambling life, empty and blue.

Sweet roses bloom where theyre planted,
That valley was closer to heaven
Than any place this poor fools been.
Its a far cry from here to Virginia,
Of that blue raged home where Im bound.
This highways a raven of long term,
My sweet mountain darling is gone.

Its a far cry from here to Virginia,
Of that blue raged home where Im bound.
My teardrops fall like rain on the roof
Of that blue raged home, of that blue raged home where Im bound
