Written by Stewart Acuff

Rollin’ down through the southern Blue Ridge

Through the valleys now between Tennessee and the Carolinas

Mountains ahead, behind, each side

Piercing clouds, why others called them Smoky

Our people planted these valleys and harvested beans, gourds, pumpkins

They fished these creeks and hunted these mountains

‘Til they couldn’t.
