Subject: RE: Who/what is the Great Speckled Bird?
I live in Chattanooga Tennessee. There is an old church in a nearby community, Reliance, Tennessee. There is a plaque at the church with the inscription that the song was written by someone in that church (whose name I can't recall). Reliance is on the Hiwassee River. I think that the movie deliverance was partially filmed there.
