"A Mountain Boy Comes Home"
by James Kane

I've lived in this man made city for these last forty years.
But when I die please don't bury me here.
Take me back to my home in the mountains I've been away for such along while
In those mountains I knew only happiness growing up as a child.
Say those last words over me in that Old Brick Church by the creek
That's were my Mother took me to learn about Jesus and his love to always seek
Then lay me beneath that ground that I love and know where my body can feel Gods summer sun and his winter falling snow.
Let there be no crying no one sad or alone.
Because all that really happened is a Mountain Boy came home.
