about

Forest Mountain Hymnal Nashville, Tennessee

Forest Mountain Hymnal (Jonathan and Rebecca Moody) is the result of our passion for folk music, fables, and the natural world in which we grew up, both in Nashville, Tennessee and Sewanee, Tennessee at the University of the South. We hope, with our music, to celebrate love, nature, peace, and community. ... more

Track Name: Oh, Love!
He is strong as sunlight.
In our home, he has dappled all our walls
And I sleep as he stirs.

Oh, love! You are sweet as any rain,
I will plant you a garden.
My love, I am young as any dawn.
I will give you a baby.

Come love, let us walk out in the dew.
There is life in the meadow.
The cherry tree where the creek runs in the Spring
Is blooming and white.

Oh love! You are strong as any tree,
I will plant you an orchard.
My love, I am pure as any spring,
I will give you a baby.

Oh child, we were wild when we fell in love!
And though the years have gone by you're still all that I can think of!
Track Name: Me, I Have Nobody
Oh, the lord he has his lady,
And the cob, the gentle pen.
Toms with queens all marry,
And the rooster loves the hen.

At night they lie together
And hold each other tight.
They sleep nor dream nor quarrel
For they've the heart's delight.

But me, I have no body,
Nor shall till the day I die.
I lie alone in my empty bed
And all night long I sigh.

Oh, Jack he wedded Jenny,
And the buck and the doe are one.
The drake and duck fly tandem,
While the fox and vixen run.

At night they lie together
And love each other right.
They sleep nor dream nor quarrel
For they've their hearts' delight.

But me, I have no body,
Nor shall till the day I die.
I lie alone in my empty bed
And all night long I sigh.
