about

This is a song I wrote about a place named Camp High Rocks in Cedar Mountain, NC, founded by Sumner “Mr. Will” and Jane Williams, where I spent many summers as a boy.

lyrics

Mr. Will you tell the old stories again
The ones you heard a long time ago
Sitting by the campfire with family and friends
Guitar songs and sing-a-longs we all know

Chorus
Bring me back to Cedar Mountain
Up the steep and winding Carolina road
Where summer lasts forever
And good friends just get better
My memories will always have a home

Through the morning mist I hear my footsteps
The horses are all waiting on their hay
As the sun peeks through you know I would bet
We'll head out on the trail to spend the day

Chorus

After noon we'll go jump off the rope swing
Maybe take a boat out on the lake
I can hear the supper bell a-ring and ring
The sign says "Take what you want, but eat what you take"

Chorus

Friday night we clean up to go dancing
The caller he calls out the Virginia Reel
Reach out your arm, and swing your partner
The young ladies take our hearts but never steal

Chorus

The old folks don't come down from Cedar Mountain
They love the gentle birdsong more than fine
Sumner's got his paddle, and Jane is in the Saddle
Riding on a painted horse named Time

Bring me back to Cedar Mountain
Up the steep and winding Carolina road
Where summer lasts forever
And good friends just get better
My memories will always have a home

Where summer just gets better vb
And good friends last forever
My memories will always have a home

Mr. Will you tell the old stories again
