Better backstory than the band could ever provide is here: therevivalist.info/melungeon-mystery-solved/

lyrics

Try to trace the roots along
Melungeon family tree
Each branch divides in triad
Settler, slave, Cherokee
Outcast, exiled miles behind
Some seaside colony
Legend holds in manifold
Dash Turk or Portuguese

LITTLE ENGLISH LITTLE DUTCH
LITTLE COLORED – JUST A TOUCH
LITTLE GIBSON – LITTLE GOINS
LITTLE CARMEL IN THE LOINS

Carmel, as scripture tells
Or confections, just misspelled
The name belies implicit lines
Lines of ancestry

An encampment still, just as before
One flashing light- Old general store
They say the Musics up and left
Left and gone away

WASHBURNS MOUNTAIN
ROCKY FORK CREEK
LAND PROVIDING
BOUNTIFULLY
HOMESTEAD HERE TO
LIVE IN PEACE
