Blue Ridge Mountain Sky
by The Marshall Tucker Band

It's a lonesome road
And a hard way to live
But it's the only life that I know
I met some people, I traveled around
But home's always the best place to go

It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
A feeling that I can't leave behind
Carolina's where I'm at, and
I'll always hang my hat
Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

I got me a woman back home
She gave me a baby, too
And she stands by my loving side and
Does anything I ask her to

It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
A feeling I can't seem to leave behind
Carolina's where I'm at, and
I'll always hang my hat
Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

There's an old man, sittin' in a rockin' chair
He's got the best beagle dog in the county I've been told
But his shotgun done got too rusty
That 'ole beagle dog he done grown a little too old
As he stares up into heaven, I'm sure I know the reason why
He's thinking about that promised land in them Blue Ridge Mountain skies

It's a lonesome feeling in my mind
A feeling I can't seem to leave behind
Carolina's where I'm at, and
I'll always hang my hat
Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

My little brother is named after Toy Caldwell. I've been listening to The Marshall Tucker Band since the day I was born. I'm 16 now, and I still love it. <3 This song makes me proud to be from the great state of North Carolina!!

This Virginian loved those Carolina boys. I came of age in the '70's when they were at their peak - owned all of the albums/cassettes. Man, the memories . . .

Went to school with Tommy (USCSpartanburg) and played many hands of draw poker in the sudent lounge,  everyone always wanted in on a game with Tommy cause every hour or so he would invite all players to his car to burn one.  Those Tucker boys always had the best smoke in Spartanburg County (RIP Tommy & Toy)
