"Flint Hill Special"
by Earl Scruggs
Tis sweet to be remembered on a bright or gloomy day
Tis sweet to be remembered by a dear one far away
Tis sweet to be remembered remembered remembered
Tis sweet to be remembered when you are far away
As I travel on this world just to soothe my rovin' mind
The messages I get from a dear one left behind
They were filled with sweetest words that's so touchely when I heard
Never ever can I forget these are some things that she said
Tis sweet to be remembered

Very nice biography
When I was a teenager, my brother played 45's of Lester Flatt and Earl
Scruggs on an old phonograph we had at home. I remember the lyrics to
most of those great old songs.
A few years ago I got directions to a small rural airport by car, and
one of the nearby roads was Scruggs Road. The locals told me the road
was named after Earl, and that that is the vicinity where he grew up,
just south of Rutherfordton near the South Carolina line.
I believe all the Scruggs' came from Robert Scruggs who migrated from England in 1655.
