Shasta in Shasta County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
have since dropped their beautiful leaves,
and the many dear friends of my childhood,
have slumbered for years in their graves.
Oh! The blooms of the flower I remember,
and the smiles I shall never more see;
for the cold chilly winds of December,
stole my flowers, my companions, from me.
There were many verses to the song, and all were sung with considerable feeling! Charles Crouch had nothing to say.
