Thread Name: Lyr Req: Dillard's Song
Subject: Dillard's Song
I was channel surfing while doing the laundry today, and came accross an old Andy Griffith Show rerun. I stopped when I heard the Dillards playing a really pretty song. Only thing is, the actress who played sister Charlene Darling was singing the lead on a song that contained this part of a chorus

The time has come for us to wander
The time has come, and we must part
____________over yonder
The grass is new, the wood is green
The grass is new, the wood is green

Does anybody know: the title of the song, if it was ever recorded on LP, the rest of the words, and the composer if it isn't Trad? I only regret that I didn't have the VCR going, and I tuned in late. I looked in the DigiTrad and came up dry.
