I was born and went to school in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, in southern West Virginia. After graduating from college, I got married, and began working in Bristol, TN. I have have various jobs from Tennessee to up state New York and a few points between. Now I work in West Virginia. Some day, I want to live in Alaska.

State Song

With all the work needed to iron out a transportation bill that is acceptable and does not SC*%W southwest Virginia, I am glad to see our legislature is spending precious time trying to agree upon a state song. The song being pushed was "Shenandoah".

And it would not be the Official State Song" it would only be an interim!

Said Deldgate Griffith of Salem of the song

"Shenandoah" is about a time in history when people were leaving Virginia to seek opportunities in the west. A state song should not call attention to that.
He does not want to talk about people leaving for West Virginia. That's a hoot!
