I've tried many ways to get this song, but none of my bookmarked lyric resources has helped, nor has a Copernic search.

The song is a dark haunting thing called "Bluestone Mountain" by Don Rigsby on his CD "Empty Old Mailbox".

I'm looking for the CD, and am gonna buy it, but meanwhilst does anyone have the lyrics (chords would be nice, but the words are more important at the moment). Pretty please?

Sorry, George, that ain't it. But cripes! talk about quick response. Thank you manymuch!

And thanks, Masato. The link that I'd found previousy wouldn't play the sound clip.

The song is about a (US) Civil War widow named Cora Jones and her son Jacob.

Keep the responses coming, o true and noble friends.

OK. Now I know a bit more. Bluestone Mountain was written by Mark Brinkman, and is a Bluegrass tune.

And that was the clincher, George. A search with the composer's name turned up a link with the lyrics. (And I believe the song is based on a true story.)

Geez, this mystery didn't even last until the day people got up and got involved!   :-)

Bluestone Mountain
Mark "Brink" Brinkman   1999

verse:
If you travel through the hills of West Virginia
Down to where the Greenbriar winds
Turn your ear toward Bluestone Mountain
And you just might hear the sound of a young girl cryin'

chorus:
Some say it's the wind through the canyon
As it blows a lonesome sound through the pines
Some say it's the sound of the river
But I say it's just Cora Jones a'cryin'

Cora lived alone on Bluestone Mountain
With a little blond-haired boy there by her side
The bloody civil war made her a widow
And little Jacob was her life-blood and her pride

Sometimes I wonder if God watches
And sometimes life can turn in cruel ways
'Cause on a cold autumn day in late October
Little Jacob wandered in Scott Hollow Cave

Now the caves of West Virginia run forever
A maze of black ribbon through the ground
Cora went to search for little Jacob
Neither Jake or Cora would be found

So, if you travel through the hills of West Virginia
Down to where the Greenbriar winds
Turn your ear toward Bluestone Mountain
And you just might hear the sound of a young girl cryin'

Jeremiah, looks like an excellent song.

Out of pure curiosity, where was it you found it?

I found the lyrics also, and have only listend to it at work so far. I'd like to play and sing it. Anyone work out the chords yet? Sounds like G, D, G, D, with a C and maybe Em in the Chorus?

I would love to get either the tablature or just the chord sequence for this haunting tune. The best version I have heard is by the Kruger Brothers.

The chords I use in playing it on the banjo are A minor, and open G then on the chorus go to the A minor startin at the 5th fret, coming back down to the G , low A minor, open G and end on A minor, works for me, I'm sure it could be made more difficult, but no need to

The song was beautifully sung by (Redhead Express's) Kendra Walker on PBS's "songs of the mountin" series.

Here's the thing.Mr.Brinkman is a songwriter.That's how he makes his living.Accordingly,he wants to be reasonably compensated for his intellectual property,and he takes measures to see that he is so compensated.That is why the lyrics,chords are not widely available.
