Subject: Lyr Req: Hill Behind Margaret's House

I have a request from someone in British Columbia who heard a song on CBC. They forgot which day, but it was somewhere between the 14 and 16th of July. The singer was a woman, who was identified as Carolyn Arnell. But she could have misheard and it might be Yarnell. I'ved tried several combinations of the name and nothing has come up. The only other thing she remembers is the title, which was identified as The Hill Behind Margaret's House.

Would anyone know of such a song by a performer whose name is similar to that given above?
Sorry for the incomplete information, but that's all she had remembered when she got around to writing it down.

BTW, I did a playlist search through the CBC for Sounds Like Canada and Richardson's Roundup for the three days mentioned. Nothing showed up there. There are some other nationwide shows I haven't checked. Of course it could be regional broadcasting. There are still a few slots in the morning, noon and afternoon for regional shows. Also, I don't know if it might have been Radio Two.

George, I tried, but if you can't find it, I can't either.

I just got word back from the requestor. Apparently she got hold of the local CBC office, and asked them if it was on their Daybreak program she heard it.

She was elated to find out that it was, and through them got in touch with the lady, Carolyn Anele, and was told the song is on a CD to be released next spring.

So, mystery solved.

A short sample at Carolyn Anele's web site (see link above) yielded these lyrics:

She worked hard in her day behind horse and plow,
Still grows a garden and walks into town,
And when she sits down for tea, she remembers their vows
They made on the hill behind Margaret's house.
And what does she see? What does she know?
High on the hill in the sunshine or cold,
With no time to grow old,
On the hill behind Margaret's house.

[The album title is simply "Carolyn Anele." It may be an EP, considering there are only 4 songs listed at the web site.]

The Hill Behind Margaret's House - copyright 2005 by Carolyn Anele

This song is symbolic of the women in my family. They're a strong and
determined lot on both sides and I'm proud to know them all…

THE HILL BEHIND MARGARET'S HOUSE
(Carloyn Anele)

V.1 From the road I see Margaret she's on her way down
       With a stick in one hand and the wind in her blouse
       You wouldn't know she is eighty and each day some how
       Climbs the hill behind Margaret's house

CH: What does she see, what does she know
       High on the hill in the sunshine or cold
       With no…time to grow old…
       On the hill behind Margaret's house

V.2 She worked hard in her day behind horse and plough
       Still grows a garden and walks into town
       When she sits down for tea she remembers their vows
       They made on the hill behind Margaret's house

CH: What does she see, what does she know
       High on the hill in the sunshine or cold
       With no…time to grow old…
       On the hill behind Margaret's house

Instrumental Bridge

V.3 So I climb up that hill wonderin' what I might find
       Searching for answers to the meaning of life
       And there is old Margaret she sees me and smiles
       And says, "tonight we'll be dancing to the northern lights"

CH: Well she sees the world just as it is
       And she knows that happiness comes from within
       With no… plans to grow old…
       Yes she sees the world just as it is
       And she knows that happiness comes from within
       With no… plans to grow old…
       On the hill behind Margaret's house
       On the hill behind Margaret's house

       From the road I see Margaret she's on her way down
       With a stick in one hand and the wind in her blouse
