Hi, Have you ever heard of a song called "Moutain Laurel"? It has something about twining mountain laurel through a girl's hair. I would appreciate it, if you know the lyrics, could you please send them to me? At my e-mail would be the best way as I don't know if I will ever find my way back here. Thanks in advance. Sisginers@aol.com Regina

Johnathon Eberhart wrote a song called "Laurel," with the chorus, "Leaves and branches / Weaving like a loom / So begins my springtime / When I see my Laurel bloom." It's on his album, "Life's Trolley Ride," probably available from Camsco.

It's available as a "custom cassette" from Folk-Legacy, and it's a lovely song! For those of you who still play "vinyl LPs," it's also still available as one of those, and ON SALE! See our web site for more information. Folk-Legacy

Could this be it?

Like the mountain laurel in the grove dear,
My love dear, is evergreen.
Like the mountain laurel finds the grove dear,
I'll find you again.

Where the mountain breezes blow
There's a place I long to go,
You'll be waiting there for me I know,
And we'll climb into the hills
Where once we wandered by,
And your heart was gay and so was mine,
And we'll find the love we left behind,
Long ago, long ago.

If not, it's a great song anyway, and a beautiful duet.

Sandy, I went to your Web Site, but I am not sure exactly which recording the song is on. Just for a little more information, here are the words I know
He took wild mountain laurel,
And he twined it in her hair
She said she didn't love him,
She said she didn't care
He wooed her with pink roses and purple columbine....

That's it. I would still appreciate it if anyone knows! Regina Sisginers@aol.com

P.S. Thanks, everyone, for your help!

Sorry, that's a different "Laurel" song. I can't help steer you toward that one, but I'm confident that other 'Cats can. (Is that a musical catscan?)

For anyone interested in Jonathan Eberhart's song, it's on his solo Folk-Legacy recording: Life's Trolley Ride which can be located via our "browse" (index) facility. But bear in mind, it's not the song in question here.

This really bugs me. I swear I've heard this song, but I can't find it. I think it has a different title. Somebody in another thread said it was sung in a television series called "Christy." Does that help ring a bell for somebody?

I found a wav file of the first verse as sung by Judy Collins on the "Amazing Grace" episode of "Christy" They listed the title as "Wild Mountain Laurel" Still haven't found lyrics.

Click here for a WAV recording of Judy Collins singing one measly verse from this song. Wish she woulda sung more.

The song was never finished. I can't remember who I asked but Judy Collins only wrote that one verse. 6 or 7 years ago I frequented her message board and begged her to finish the song. No response.

There are several songs called MOUNTAIN LAUREL. Here's one of them:

MOUNTAIN LAUREL
written by Chilton Price, ©1952.
as recorded by Vaughn Monroe

Like the mountain laurel in the grove, dear,
My love dear is ever green.
Like the mountain laurel finds the grove, dear,
I'll find you again.

Where the mountain breezes blow,
There's a place I long to go.
You'll be waiting there, I know,
In the pines, and we'll climb
Into the hills we knew in days gone by,
When your heart was gay and so was I,
And we'll find the love we left behind
Long ago, long ago.

Like the mountain laurel in the grove, dear,
My love, dear, is ever green.
Like the mountain laurel finds the grove, dear,
I'll find you again.

Like the mountain laurel finds the grove, dear,
I'll find you again.

[also recorded by Grandpa Jones and Ramona]

From: Jim Dixon
Date: 24 Jul 13 - 12:15 AM

MOUNTAIN LAUREL
written by Randall Hylton
as recorded by The Bluegrass Cardinals on "The Essential Bluegrass Cardinals"

On the banks of a cool shady river,
I made love to a sweet mountain girl,
And I begged her to be mine forever,
And we'd travel all over the world.

CHORUS: Come away (with me tomorrow) sweet mountain Laurel (for I need you).
You're the flower (in my mind) in my mind (flower in my mind).
Say you'll love me (love and stand beside me), mountain Laurel (never leave me)
And forever be mine.

But she said she could never leave the mountains,
So we spoke parting words and we both cried,
And my tears flowed again like a fountain
When they wrote me and told me she'd died.

[also recorded by David Parmley & Continental Divide on "There'll Always Be a Rocking Chair"]
