about

This song was written by Sadie's father, David Currey, and she used to sing it when she lived in Missouri and played in her family band, CurreyKorn. Sadie introduced it to us last Fall and we fell in love with it - so much so that we decided to make it our band name too!

lyrics

(1st verse)
Guide me up High Rock Mountain
Listen to my prayer as the tears roll down
Though my hope has run away, and I can't see the light of day,
Won't you guide me up High Rock Mountain

(2nd verse)
The road I'm on is rough and rocky
The storm clouds are looming overhead
As the sunlight fades away, you can hear my heartbeat say,
Won't you guide me up High Rock Mountain

(chorus)
Hold out your hand
Reach out and help the sinner man
Though I wish to do what's right, my heart is black as night,
Won't you guide me up High Rock Mountain

(3rd verse)
Dark memories in the night dance around me
Their shifting shadows call out my name
As my past weighs me down, I'm kneeling on the ground,
Praying guide me up High Rock Mountain

(chorus)
Hold out your hand
Reach out and help the sinner man
Though I wish to do what's right, my heart is black as night,
Won't you guide me up High Rock Mountain
Won't you guide me up High Rock Mountain

about

High Rock Mountain Boston, Massachusetts

We met at the beginning of the 2012 Fall semester at Berklee College of Music through the Bluegrass ensemble arrangement, but we feel like we've been playing together for years. We are delighted to take the musical heritage with which we've been blessed and bring it to those both familiar and new to Bluegrass, spreading awareness of this great music and expanding the Bluegrass community. ... more
