"THE GLADES OF GARRETT"
Words by Folger McKinsey, 1907 (The Bentztown Bard)
Music by Felix G. Robinson, 1954


Highlands for their heather and Killarney for its braes
I've climbed the lonely summits I have seen the blue mist lay

For me the Glades of Garrett when the golden buckwheat sways
In the green lap of the mountains on a Golden summer day.

When song birds fill the forests and the sheep upon the hills
I have seen it lift and lighten have seen it float and swing

Go with little bells that tinkle to the tinkling of the rills
Like a veil that moves to dancing of the lithe, frail form of Spring

The golden Glades of Garrett where the hours are veiled in gleam
I've gazed down wild with wonder o'er Deep Creek at my feet

And the footsteps of the Spirit walk in cloisters of the dream
Oh the golden Glades of Garrett with the sheep bells tinkling sweet


Refrain:

The Highlands for their heather and Killarney for its braes

For me the Glades of Garrett when the golden buckwheat sways.


Dedicated to Julia McHenry Howard who has spent a portion of every summer of her life in the Glades of Garrett.
