Lyrics

Katherine

Written By: sandy mason & harley allen

I flew to Georgia on a pretty summer day
my Grama Ann had passed away
she was the youngest of her parents family
A part of southern history
she left a small house and and old chest painted blue
i spent the evening going through
i found a letter written by her fathers hand
wrote to her mother Katherine
oh katherine, oh katherine i'm off to war with Abraham
My love's forever like the wind oh Katherine oh Katherine
An old newpaper dated 1864 i found hiddin in a drawer
the dead were listed under casulties of war
with one name i had seen before
I knew that she had held this paper in her hand
and my tears fell where her's had been
i felt her sadness but then i felt the wind
i read his letter once again
Oh Katherine, oh Katherine i'm off to war with Abraham
My loves forever like the wind oh Katherine oh Katherine
