Lyrics
Six long months and six long days
Since I lost seen my baby go away
It started out as a cool yet sunny day
It was November 3rd, it was her birthday
It seems so long, yes it seems so long

Although I know I’ve changed so much since then
Yet I know that I will see her again
But I don’t when, no I don’t know when

Though we were so very far apart
There is a part of her that I held in heart
Which I took and buried in this place far away
I’ll go back down and reclaim it someday

There’s a place with mountains and trees
And narrow, winding roads in north Kentucky
It’s heaven by day and hell by night
A perfect reflection of me and Jane’s short life
Called Olive Hill

Although it seems so long since I sang this song
For the first time, for the last time on Olive Hill
Bluegrass shacks and wells

There’s a place with mountains and trees
And narrow, winding roads in north Kentucky
It’s heaven by day and hell by night
A perfect reflection of me and Jane’s short life
Called Olive Hill

Analysis: After an extended hiatus to attend school and re-record some older songs, I got back into writing and recording in late spring 1990. Armed with new knowledge and a different approach, the songs of the 90s varied much from the songs of the 80s, especially in this earliest period of the decade when I concentrated much on simpler, acoustic folk songs, such as this.
