SIMON CRUTCHFIELD'S GRAVE (Black) The Wilburn Brothers - 1973 McPeak Brothers - 1980 The Rarely Herd - 1992 The East Coast Bluegrass Band - 1998 I remember very well a tale my Daddy used to tell About ol' Simon Crutchfield and his friends Now Mary was his pretty wife And they loved every breath of life Before they took ol' Riley Harper in Now Simon plowed and worked the fields And Mary cooked their meals And Riley kept and eye out on the plains Still no one knew just when this episode came to an end They only knew of Simon Crutchfield's grave Mary Crutchfield, you should be ashamed Get on your knees and pray your soul be saved Riley Harper, if the devil is to blame Why can't you drive by Simon Crutchfield's grave? In the year of 1864 a blizzard blew across the moor All the crops were snowed out, none were saved And the only way to get to town Was a wagon road that wound around Through the woods by Simon Crutchfield's grave Now some folks say that they layed there At least six months or more Before an old fur trapper found their bones He claimed they wrote their epitaph upon the cabin door Just as it reads today on marble stone Mary Crutchfield, here lies Mary Crutchfield She betrayed the love that Simon gave Riley Harper, here lies Riley Harper 'Cause he couldn't drive by Simon Crutchfield's grave
