I don't know for sure if I've ever heard this song but my husband's Great-Aunt just past away and I guess this was her favorite song. We'd love to have the words.

I have a song on a CD titled "White Oak on the Hill". Do you think this might be what you are looking for?

It may be. Is it a old song? Do you have the words or even the name of the cd and who did it? Thanks so much for any help at all!

I found this song on a website. I think it is the same one that I told you about. What do you think? The letters in parenthesis are the guitar chords.


Nelman, Carl R

WHITE OAK ON THE HILL
(G)There's a white oak on the hill at our (C)old clinch mountain (G)home.
It stands straight and true on that (A)windy spur a -(d)lone
But (G) when the cold wind blows it's (C)limbs they bend and (G)moan
When the storms pass it straightens (D)up and goes (G)on

(Chorus)

(G)Lord let me be like that (C)white oak on the (G)hill
Help me to live in Your (A)almighty (D)will
(G)Help me on my journey, Lord, (C)as I travel (G)on
Give me the strength to straighten (D)up and go (G)on.


(G)You know the troubles of this life, some-(C)times get me (G)down
I look for my friends, but (A)they're not always (D)'round
The (G)good Lord he say's, "get (C)up and do my (G)will
And always remember that (D)white oak on the (G)hill."

(Chorus)

Thank you so much. I'll check and see if this is the same one, I'll bet it is. The guitar chords are really a huge help for my husband! Thanks again and God Bless.
