I wonder if you are looking for the song which i believe to be composed by U. Utah (bruce) Phillips which has a line which goes like this:

the Blue Ridge Mt.s of Virginia, are the closest thing to heaven that i know. ...da da da.....never let me go....

I don't remember any more of it,' but this is NOT the same as the theme from the movie based on a book by Gene Stratton Porter....

The song was sung in the godawful movie (starring Fred MacMurray?). I remembered it fondly from my childhood, then made the mistake of watching it again on one of the TV channels. The John Fox book was pretty dreadful, too.

When I was little, we also sang:

In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia
Stood a cow on a railroad track.
She was a good old cow with eyes so fine,
But you couldn't expect a cow to read a railroad sign,
So she stood in the middle of the track,
And the train came and hit her right in the back.
You'll find her horns in the mountains of Virginia,
And her tail on her lonesome spine.

Every once in a while Daddy would whip out the ukelele or the mandolin and sing "In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, on the Trail of the Lonsome Pine" while mugging like Groucho Marx at my mother, and he would pour her a drink. They seemed to go bed early those nights after he'd been playing that stuff to her and making her laugh.

Scholars today are seriously studying the "function" of folk music in the family and in the community. Rolfyboy6 may have something of genuine importance to contribute to this field of academic exploration.

Thank's for all the links everybody, Its been an absolute pleasure to work this song and get it tight. It goes down great.-For the guru's- Key "F" (?,to suit singer)-also the key L&H sings it. But I think it was originaly wrote in "C" Great song, Try going right up the neck on the guitar, the more you do , the better it sounds.(But only in parts) 7nths play a big part also.John

Mr Happy, if you followed the instructions to the sheet music at American Memory, you would know that there are only two verses plus chorus, and that the correct title is "On the Trail of the Lonesome Pine." It will also be found, 5th or 6th item, if you type in "In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia."
