Appalachian Memories Lyrics

Artist: Dolly Parton
Album: Greatest Hits

You oughta go north somebody told us
...?ause the air is filled with gold dust
And fortune falls like snow flakes in your hands
Now I donÅ  recall you said it
But weŠŽ lived so long on credit
And so we headed out to find our promised land
Just poor Appalachian farm folk
With nothing more than high hopes
We hitched our station wagon to a star
But our dreams all fell in on us
'Cause there was no land of promise
And itÅ  a stuggle keepin?sight of who you are

Oh and these northern nights are dreary
And my southern heart is weary
I wonder how the old folks are back home
But IÅ l keep leanin?on sweet Jesus
I know HeÅ l love and guide and lead us
Appalachian memories keep me strong

Ya know IÅ e been thinkin?a whole lot lately
About whatÅ  been and what awaits me
It takes all IÅ e got to give what life demands
You go insane if you give in to it
LifeÅ  a mill and IÅ e been through it
IÅ  just thankful IÅ  creative with my hands

Oh and these northern nights are dreary
And my southern eyes are teary
DonÅ  I wonder how the old folks are back home
But IÅ l keep leanin?on my Jesus
I know heÅ l love and guide and lead us
Appalachian memories keep me strong

IÅ l keep lookin?to the Father
Keep our heads above the water
Appalachian memories keep me strong
