      About "Seven Hillsides"

      Lyrics for Ricky Skaggs - "Seven Hillsides"

      All night I've wrestled Jacob's angels
      And prayed with Matthew, Luke and John
      Struggling to find the words you face the task
      That comes upon the blood red dawn.

      I've buried men before their time
      Of alcohol and blackened lung
      But how to bury seven of these
      Appalachian miners sons.
      Who stormed the beaches wave on wave,
      And sailed home to these rocky graves
      In family plots that bared their names.

      Tomorrow I'll walk up, seven hillsides
      Tremble before my flock on seven hillsides
      Seven sorrows, seven sons, seven mothers and every one
      Will turn to me for the word of God, what does this mean?
      And there I'll stand good book in hand,
      A shepherd to these precious lambs
      What will I say, what will I say, what can I say?

      To tell the truth I'd never thought much
      About the will of God before.
      Called to preach at seventeen
      I was in love with fiery words and not much more.
      The time has come to keep the faith
      For others shattered by their loss.
      Remind them of the loving God
      Whose son like theirs paid the cost.
      To save a sad and wicked world
      Through sacrifice our love is heard
      And pray that I believe those words.

      Tomorrow I'll walk up, seven hillsides
      Tremble before my flock on seven hillsides
      Seven sorrows, seven sons, seven mothers and every one
      Will turn to me for the word of God, what does this mean?
