"To the Shining Mountains" as written by and Johnny Cash John R. Cash....
Yes, went they through the Lehigh Valley To Lake Erie past Virginia And the land called out its challenge Bring your men to match our mountains See the green Ohio Valley See the Cumberland, the Wabash On the Tennessee they floated On great rafts to the Mississippi And the Cherokee and Shawnee And the Creek and The Ojibwa And the Choctaw and the Quapaw And all the tribes along the rivers [Incomprehensible] that they were coming That the white man was upon them They built their homes along the rivers Built their churches, brought their preachers Came upon the white misery Stopped before the shining mountains Many died from the beginning For the freedom of America Like that day down in New Orleans
