  • Grandfather Mountain you're big and you're high.  It seems that your shoulders help to hold up the sky.  I will never forget you till the day that I die.   Oh I will keep those old memories alive.

    If you have never been there a beauty so wild and so rare, it could even rival a rose.  And on a clear day from the top of his head, you can see clear to Charlotte below.
