Home Upon The Hill

 

In a Smoky Mountain town

Folks pass upo and down

And raise a hand like they know your name

 

A family's given grace

And a woman's prayers remain

Spoken ev'ry Sunday for the ones not there

 

And if I live, I'm growin' closer

To goin' back and take my love

Lord willin', to a home upon the hille

 

Some hearts break at the bottom

But one spark can find you fallin'

And movin' closer to the ones you love

 

And if I live, I'm growin' closer

To goin' back and take my love

Lord willin', to a home upon the hill

 

There's a place a waitin'

Where your roots are sure and deep

You can lay your worried head

And your heavy heart can sleep

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

 

There's a home upon the hill

In a Smoky Mountain town

 

There's a home up the hill

In a Smoky Mountain town
