IN THE HILLS OF SHILOH (Shel Silverstein) Bobby Bare - 1973 You know, ev'rything that's ever been written about the Civil War, they wrote about brother fightin' brother and father fightin' son, and nobody has ever really written a song about the ones that stayed behind, you know, like the women that lost their men. That's what this is about.......... Have you seen Amanda Blaine In the Hills of Shiloh Wanderin' through the mornin' rain In the Hills of Shiloh Have you seen her at her door Listenin' for the cannon roar And a man who went to war >From the Hills of Shiloh Have you heard her mournful cries In the Hills of Shiloh Have you seen her haunted eyes In the Hills of Shiloh Have you seen her runnin' down Searchin' through the sleepy town In her yellowed wedding gown In the Hills of Shiloh Have you seen her standin' there In the Hills of Shiloh Wind a blowin' through her hair In the Hills of Shiloh Listenin' for the sound of guns Listenin' for the rollin' drums And a man who never comes To the Hills of Shiloh Have you heard Amanda sing In the Hills of Shiloh Whisperin' to her wedding ring In the Hills of Shiloh Hear her hummin' soft and low Poor Amanda doesn't know Twas ended forty years ago In the Hills of Shiloh (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2011)
