I would give my car to have the lyrics to that song! Well, not quite the car, but if you have them I'd sure 'preciate it! Thanks and keep on pickin'.

I dont need your car, but, maybe this will help. The only one I ever heard sing this is a husband and wife duo, Peter and Rachelle Talbot RR#3 Spencerville Ontario, Canada KOE1XO. This address is 3 or 4 years old so might not still be valid. Sorry I couldnt do more.

(Damon Black)

I remember very well, a tale my Daddy used to tell
About Ol' Simon Crutchfield and his friends
Now Mary was his pretty wife, and they loved every breath of life,
Before they took Ol' Riley Harper in.

Now Simon plowed and worked the fields, Mary cooked their meals,
And Riley kept an eye out on the place.
Still no one knew just when, this episode came to an end,
They only knew of Simon Crutchfield's grave.

      Mary Crutchfield, you should be ashamed.
      Get on your knees and pray your soul be saved
      Riley Harper, if the devil is to blame,
      Why can't you drive by Simon Crutchfield's grave?

In the year of 1864, a blizzard came across the moor.
All the crops were sold out, none were saved
And the only way to get to town, was a wagon road that wound around,
Through the woods by Simon Crutchfield's grave

Now some folks say that they laid there, at least six months or more
Before an old fur trapper found their bones
He claimed they wrote their epitaph, upon the cabin door
Just as it reads today on marble stone

Mary Crutchfield, here lies Mary Crutchfield.
'Cause she betrayed the love that Simon gave
Riley Harper, here lies Riley Harper.
'Cause he couldn't drive by Simon Crutchfield's grave.

Cause he couldn't drive by (SLOW) Simon Crutchfield's grave

On a Wilburn Brothers telecast, Teddy or Doyle said that song was writen for them - before they sang it.

PM me for their version.
