CUMBERLAND BLUE
Music and lyrics by Muriah Rose (Admin BMI 2016)

For William Moscow Rose 1920-2010

Blue smoke rising over the wildwood mountains and fields
You came a long way from the mines to driving those 18 wheels
And we miss you since you've been gone, remember all your songs
Will the Circle Be Unbroken
and the Wabash Cannonball
I hear them all

So comb your hair one more time
and tie on your shoes
And take that leaving train for home
in the Cumberland Blue

I didn't know the trials you came through
That's the price of being young
You moved away from your mountain roots
to make a better life for those you loved
And as I drive these far highways
I remember all your songs
The high and lonesome sound of the people I come from
and their love

So comb your hair one more time
and tie on your shoes
And take that leaving train for home
take that leaving train for home
take that leaving train for home
in the Cumberland Blue
