"Carry Me Away" as written by and Jeffery T. White Billy Smith....
Every day is a gamble, if you really want to make it through
When you live on the side of the mountain, and the babies all need food
I was the youngest one among us, I got sick and would not eat
Daddy prayed accept his fate, but Mommy would not heed

[Chorus]
Carry me across the mountain, before it is too late
Heal my broken my body, death not be my fate
Carry me across the mountain, don't give up on me
I am but a helpless child, whose life depends on thee

Daddy warned against it, said you may not make it through
Momma wrapped me in her arms, crying what else can I do
There is a place across the mountain top, across the mountain side
They say there is a doctor there, might save our baby's life

[Chorus]

Now I stand upon the mountain top, before my mother's grave
And every year I visit here, to thank her for that day

Carry me across the mountain, before it is too late
Heal my broken my body, death not be my fate
Carry me across the mountain, don't give up on me
