Thread Name: Carter Family copyrights?
Subject: RE: Carter Family copyrights?
I was wrong, I think you mean:

Mid The Green Fields Of Virginia
Mid the green fields of Virginia
In the valle of Shanadoah
There's an ivy covered homestead that I love
With it's white old fashioned chimney
And it's simple homelike air
Tis the home of my dear parents now above

There's a peaceful cottage there
A happy home so dear
My heart is longing for them day by day
Where I spent life's golden hours
In the veil of Shanadoah
Mid the green fields for Virginia far away

Mid the green fields of Virginia
Stands an old mill by the stream
I once wandered to that spot to sing and play
And how often I would throw the stone
Into the pebbling brook
I would dream someday it'd carry me away
