There was an old hymn sung by the Carter Family:

Oh, my loving fathers,
When the world's on fire,
Don't you want God's bosom
To be your pillow?
Oh, hide me over
In the Rock of Ages,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me.

Continue with, "mother," "brother," "sister," etc., and sing it to the tune you know for "This Land..."

Which came first, this or "Little Darlin' Pal of Mine," I've no idea. Other Mudcatters might.
