I’ve Endured, Ola Belle Reed. Nancy liked this song and claimed it as her own! It reminds her of how we endure what comes our way in life. Fiddle: GDAE Banjo: gDGBD


Born in the mountain, fifty years ago
Climbed these hills and valleys through the rain and snow
Seen the lightning flashing, I’ve heard the thunder roll
I've endured, I've endured, how long can one endure

Barefoot in the summer, on into the fall
Too many mouths to feed, they couldn't clothe us all
Sent to church on Sunday to learn the golden rule
I've endured, I've endured, how long can one endure

I've worked for the rich, I've lived with the poor
I've seen many a heartache, there’ll be many a more
I've lived loved and sorrowed, been to success's door
I've endured, I've endured, how long can one endure
I've endured, I've endured, how long can man endure
