(to be sung to the tune of ”Oh, My Darlin’ Clementine)
(This was sung at the fiftieth wedding anniversary celebration in honor of Jane & Sumner Williams.  The celebration was held at the summer camp they founded, Camp High Rocks, in Cedar Mountain, NC.
Jane and Sumner, it’s a wonder 
Fifty years have come and gone. 
We admire you 
And we love you 
And we hope you like our song. 

Fond of mountains, fond of airplanes 
In Mondamin’s woods she grew 
Unimpressed by 
The young men who came to woo. 

Fond of mountains, fond of airplanes 
To Mondamin Sumner came 
He admired her 
And conspired to 
Win her over, marry Jane. 


In a courtship in the airways 
They sailed through the clouds above 
Between Knoxville And Tuxedo 
And were soon to fall in love. 

They got married, raised a family 
And had children, what a crew. 
David, Gina, Pat and Betsy, 
Nancy B and Boogy Loo. 

Near a town called Cedar Mountain
’Tween the mountains and the sky 
They built High Rocks,
Lovely High Rocks
With a lake and forest high.

Now we gather friends and family 
It’s a time to celebrate 
Fifty years of
Love and friendship
That we so appreciate.
