lyrics

There's a little grave on a green hillside
That lies in the morning sun
And the wayworn feet often wander there
When the cares of the day are done
We sometimes sit as the twilight falls
And talk of a far off land
And we sometimes feel in the twilight there
The touch of a vanished hand
Grave on a green hillside
Grave on a green hillside
In the years to come we will calmly sleep
In a grave on a green hillside
And this land is full of these little graves
In the valleys, plains, and hills
There's an angel, too, for each little grave
An angel's mission fills
I know not how, but I sometimes think
They lead us with gentle hands
And a whisper falls on a willing ear
From the shore of a far off land
Grave on a green hillside
Grave on a green hillside
In the years to come we will calmly sleep
In a grave on a green hillside
And these little graves are but wayside marks
That point to a far off land
And they speak to the soul of a better day
Of a day that's near at hand
Though we first must walk through this darksome fields
Yet Christ will be our guide
We will reach the shore of a far off land
Through a grave on a green hillside
Grave on a green hillside
Grave on a green hillside
We will reach the shore of a far off land
Through a grave on a green hillside

about

Tin Cup Rattlers Chattanooga, Tennessee

Jeff and Marcy Paulson of the Tin Cup Rattlers love sharing old-time ballads, gospels, and folksongs in the tradition of their home in Southeast Tennessee. Their blend of clawhammer banjo, old-time harmonica, and mountain singing is original, yet demonstrates compelling reverence for tradition. This duo is drawn to time-honored tunes and their love for the music is infectious. ... more
