Thread Name: Bible School songs
Subject: RE: Bible School songs
My mother-in-law, age 69, remembers the song "Sunshine Mountain" with the same words Genie remembered. She learned it in a Vacation Bible School in the little mountain town of Bastian, Bland County, Virginia, in the late 40s. She also knows the gestures. From her childhood, she remembered "Deep and Wide", "I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy", "This Little Light Of Mine", and "I May Never March in the Infantry" (with the phrase "I may never fly over Germany" instead of "o'er the enemy").
