One more hill's as far as I can go
February 6, 2011 11:52 PM   Subscribe

What is this song I heard today? It's a slow folkish bluegrass song with the lines "Lately I've been moving kind of slowly, one more hill's as far as I can go" as the chorus.

I googled the lyrics and found nothing. It was by a male vocalist and was fairly low tempo. I heard it on a bluegrass show on a local NPR affiliate (WOUB) a little before 6:00 pm, but I don't know the name of the show or if there would be a website for it. It had a pretty strong older country vibe, too. I hope this isnt too much of a log shot, because I can't get this song out of my head.

Is it "One More Hill" by The Country Gentlemen?

Oops, I missed the "low tempo" part. It's probably not their version, but maybe someone else recorded the same song.

Okay, I'm striking out, but here's a way to figure it out. WOUB has their FM schedule here, and you can look at the playlists of the music shows. It looks like they don't have today's up yet, but when they do, you can find it that way.

The WOUB-FM program guide for Sunday, Feb. 6, shows "D28+5 Bluegrass" airing before 6 p.m. When I clicked on the individual for the show it doesn't go anywhere, but maybe the info can help you search. Here's the description:

D28+5 - Bluegrass
Pete Hart, Ron Vigue, Deanna Tribe, Rusty Smith
Recorded bluegrass and monthly live performances

If that's not it, the station's email is radio@woub.org. It wouldn't hurt to write and ask.

It's definitely a different version of the song Pater Alethias posted. It was a lot slower and felt a little sad, and there was only one singer. It was also a lot less overtly bluegrass, without the plucky banjo. I'll start looking for covers.

Also, looking at the WOUB schedule, I'm thinking it may have actually been on Hornpipe and Fugue, even though that seems like a less fitting genre, as it was definitely on in the fifteen minutes before All Things Considered at six. I was listening to the bluegrass show earlier in the afternoon, and they had been running a bit of a tribute to a couple of artists who died recently, so maybe it ran long yesterday. I'll try to get hold of someone at the radio station.

It's definitely not "One More Hill" by Greg Graffin, or any other covers of that song, as sandraregina posted. Unfortunately, trying to google the Country Gentlemen song mostly gives the Greg Graffin songs as results. I've emailed WOUB and will update with the artist if they can give it. Thanks for all your help, and if anyone thinks they may have found it, please keep posting.
