There was a girl I loved so dearly

She lived away back in the hills

When the bluebirds sing I miss my darling

She loved me I know she always will

As the bluebirds singing in the Blue Ridge Mountains

It's calling me back to my home

Oh I can hear those bluebirds calling

They’re calling me back to my home

Now there I am far from the Blue Ridge Mountains

Far from my home back in the hills

Well I'm going back to the Blue Ridge Mountains

These memories they haunt me still


When I reached home I was so lonely

The one I loved has gone away

That sad news came from her mother

She's sleeping there beneath the clay
