    [RC] Songs on the trail - Beth Bennett

    My personal favorites are, of course, my very favorite -- John Denver. Anything of his will do.  I try not to sing with others around.  My mare doesn't seem to mind my singing, but I'm not sure about the "endurance" of people I might ride with.
    My other favorite is "How Great Thou Art."  Not being a particularly "religeous" person, somehow when I get out on the trail early in the morning, that song just comes to me.  Perhaps my church is truely on the back of my horse riding down the Rape Gap trail up on Pigeon Mountain.  I always get teary-eyed.
    "When through the woods and forest glades I wander
    and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
    When I look down from lofty mountains grandeur
    and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze. . . "
    OH!  I also really like to sing Dwight Yokum.
