Old man, bird, and dugout canoe are made from source. Personal photo used for background.
Old man of the mountains was Mountain Man Pete,
He was made all of wood from his head to his feet.
He lived in a cabin of logs that were crude,
And rode his canoe while he played on his flute.
He slid through the water where fog hung for awhile,
And serenaded the animals with songs of the wild,
Songs he had learned from a life we'd deny,
From life as he knew it
From the mountainside.
