One old song that I like is I Found The Lily In My Valley by Quinton Mills, a Native American from the Haliwa-Saponi tribe and fellow North Carolinian! A former drug addict who has now reached thousands with the gospel.

I Found The Lily In My Valley
Most of you know I am a Southerner. Living in the west, I miss the south so much! More so because I lived in a very old-fashioned area. For most people that I know, where I lived would be like another world to them. I lived in a county that will soon be federally recognized as a Lumbee Indian Reservation. It is rich with a culture that is reminiscent of 70 years ago. We love to eat fat-back, collards, and fried green tomatoes. A window is a "windy" and you don't sit, you "sot." Where there are still old-fashioned camp meetings, folks fall on their faces before the Lord, run the aisles, and could otherwise care less what anyone thinks of their worship! I miss it all so much... especially the music.
