PINEY RIVER GIRL (Bill Staines)

Well I heard the sound of a redbird sing
And the call of a whippoorwill
As the sun pours over the eastern ridges
And warms the morning hills.

I heard the sound of an old blue hound
As he wakened to the day.
He shook off all of his hound-dog dreams
And wandered upon his way.

Chorus
	Thinkin' 'bout old Virginia and a Blue Ridge memory
	Fills my mind with another time and brings her back to me.
	Thinkin' 'bout old Virginia and a Blue Ridge memory
	Fills my mind with another time and brings her back to me.

She loved the sound of the banjo's ring
And she loved the bluegrass tunes
And as I recall, she knew them all
Beneath the mountain moon.

She loved the soft and the easy wind
As it whispered in the hills
And I'd like to think that if I were there
She'd maybe love me still.

Chorus

The times they come and the times they go
You win sometimes you lose
But I love this livin' with every breath
And I love to sing the blues.

When I hear a redbird sing
My heart jumps in a whirl
It reminds of the time once spent
With a Piney River Girl

Chorus
