Thread Name: Lyr Req: High on the Mountain (Ola Belle Reed)
Subject: RE: Lyric search
"High On a Mountain" was written by Ola Belle Reed who came out of Ashe County in the mountains of North Carolina. She sang with her husband Bud Reed and their own band. Ola Belle Reed's version of the song can be found on the Rounder double CD "Hills Of Home, 25 Years of Folk Music on Rounder REcords (CD AN 16/17). I know it has been recorded by other bluegrass/string band groups but I cannot find that information. I will have to find the Rounder CD to transcribe the words, although it seems like this song came up in the discussion group some time ago.
