Down in the valley of the Sycamore Trees

Came a twisting and churning blustery breeze,

It stirred up the leaves and threw them so high

That it looked like bird flocks filling the sky.

 

Joseph Hampton and sons had reason to be

In the Shenandoah Valley in a Sycamore Tree.

A hollow trunk giant, forty-five feet around

Was their home for a year, or so they had found.

 

Yes, to be Clark County, Virginia, in 1744,

They burrowed a hole that would serve as a door

And there they sought shelter for months on end

Their port in the storms, from the cold and the wind.
