Title Far Away on the Hills of Old New Hampshire
Description SOHGS OF YESTERDAY Music has always been a vital part of our pioneer heritage. Sanpete County has been recognized through the years for its many outstanding musicians and has attained national recognition for musical contributions. Early-settlers to these valleys brought with them music they had been taught in their- previous homes; also, other songs were learned from time to time. Each family had its own favorite songs: fun songs, story songs, love songs, etc., handed down from generation to generation. These song3 have all become a part of our heritage and have great meaning in our lives. We have included thia year, in addition to the winning entries in the writing contest, words of old songs submitted by readers of the Saga. Due to the large number of songs received, we have been unable to print all of them and space does not allow for the printing of the music for the songs. Ve hope you will enjoy reading these songs and singing them. • * * FAR AWAY ON THE HILLS OF 0U> NEW HAMPSHIRE Far away on the hills of old Hew Hampshire, Many years ago we parted, Ruth and I. We parted and I left her broken hearted, In the old New Hampshire village far away. She clung to me and trembled while I told her And pleadingly she begged of me to stay. Now my heart lies buried with her, 'Neath the willow in the old Hew Hampshire village far away. Chorus Sow the Bunshine lingers there and the roses bloom so fair Where together in the wildwood we would roam. In the village church yard near, Sleeps the one I love so dear. On the hills of my old New Hampshire home. Submitted by Rose Mclff, Sterling, Utah. -71-
