got an email today about this song-

Singer: Unknown/Title a guess

In the land of Ethan Allen

where the sugar maples grow

Where the wild grass fills the meadows

and the rocky river flows

lie the hills that I call home.

The Hills That I Call Home It's by Robert Amos, of the Colorado BG group, Front Range.

We did it on our first CD. We often use it as an opener for our gigs.

THE HILLS THAT I CALL HOME
Front Range

I was born upon a hillside
Where the pines sing in the wind
Where my daddy did before me
And my grandpa before him

We believe in simple wisdom
It's the only life we've known
All we need here is our freedom
And a place to call our own

CHORUS: In the land of Ethan Allen
Where the sugar maples grow
Where the wild grass fills the meadow
And the rocky rivers flow
By the hills that I call home

Now I have traveled cross the country
And there is much that I have learned
Still I felt no peace inside me
Till the day that I returned

For there's two things you can count on
In this troubled world we face
Every season has a [---------]
Every person has a place

CHORUS: In the land of Ethan Allen
Where the sugar maples grow
Where the wild grass fills the meadow
And the rocky rivers flow
By the hills that I call home

SWEET LIPS: THE BATTLE OF KING'S MOUNTAIN

Sung by Grandpa Jones

It was back in '81 that a man named Washington
Was fighting hard for freedom in this land,
But his men were poor and ragged,
And against the British gun,
Well, he didn't even dare to make a stand.

Old Ferguson was marching toward the Carolina hills,
Making brags he'd hang a man to every tree,
But the news that he was coming
Raced across the mountain tops,
And they heard about it over in Tennessee.

At the shoal of old Watauga, where the sycamores grow tall,
They rallied around ol' Nolichucky Jack,
And they said, "We'll drive the Redcoats
Back across the briny deep.
Yes, we'll lick 'em, or we're never coming back!"

There was Chucky Jack and Campbell, Colonel Shelby in their band,
Mountaineers who loved their liberty,
And a lovesick boy named Gillam
With a brand new rifle gun,
Named for his girl in Tennessee.

Sweet Lips was a rifle named for a girl in Tennessee.
When Sweet Lips spoke,
The chains that bound us broke.
She struck a mighty blow for liberty.

When they rode across the mountains onto Carolina soil,
The Tarheels with their muskets gathered 'round
To go and head off Ferguson
Before he got to them
To hang 'em all and burn their houses down.

When Ferguson heard the mountain men were camping on his trail,
He first began to laugh and then to scoff,
Said, "We'll go up on King's Mountain,
And then let the rebels come,
For the powers of Hell will never drive me off."

But Campbell and Ben Cleveland, Colonel Shelby, and their men,
And John Sevier ~ ol' Nolichucky Jack ~
Well, they loaded up their rifles,
And they climbed the mountainside,
Said, "We'll lick 'em, or we're never coming back!"

Oh, he blew his silver whistle, and he shouted and he cursed,
"Use your bayonets to drive the rebels back!"
But the Redcoats never made it,
For before they reached the line,
The mountain rifles jumped them in their tracks.

Sweet Lips was a rifle named for a girl in Tennessee.
When Sweet Lips spoke,
The chains that bound us broke.
She struck a mighty blow for liberty.

Ol' Ferguson was dashing up and down the battlefield,
And it seemed that he must lead a life of charm,
For the mountaineers were aiming
At his gaudy checkered coat,
But their bullets passed him by and did no harm.

Then up stepped young John Gillam with his brand new rifle gun,
Named for his girl back home. He said,
"Well, I wonder what Sweet Lips can do?"
And when he took his aim,
Sweet Lips spoke, and Ferguson fell dead.

Cornwallis heard that Ferguson and all his men were lost,
And he said, "This place is just too hot for me."
So he soon went off to Yorktown,
Where he laid his weapons down,
And ever since this country has been free.

Sweet Lips was a rifle named for a girl in Tennessee.
When Sweet Lips spoke,
The chains that bound us broke.
She's gone and did her part for liberty.

Nels / Ontario Canada.
Love the piece.
The singer definitely DOES NOT SAY - Every Season ("has an ending..)"
It is something else - but that DOES sound proper.
I would dearly love to know what in hell it DOES SAY!!!

I listened to Front Range singing THE HILLS THAT I CALL HOME on Spotify, and this is what I hear:

Verse 1, line 3: "Where my daddy lived before me"

Verse 2, line 1: "We believe in simple livin'"

Chorus, line 3: "Where the wild grass fills the meadows"

Chorus, line 5: "Lie the hills that I call home"

Verse 4, line 3: "Every season has an ending"

And in verse 4, line 1, I don't hear any "s" after "there." He might be singing "there're" for "there are" but it sounds exactly like "there."

Where the pines sing in the wind
Where my daddy lived before me
And my grandpa before him

We believe in simple livin'
It's the only life we know
All we need here is our freedom
And a place to call our own

   In the land of Ethan Allen
   Where the sugar maples grow
   Where the wild grass fills the meadows
   And the rocky rivers flow
   By the hills that I call home (It is By the, you have to listen carefully)

Now I have traveled cross the country
And there is much that I have learned
Still I felt no peace inside me
Till the day that I return?

For there two things you can count on
In this troubled world we face
Every season has an ending
Every person has a place
