Recorded by Burl Ives
Written by Lyle Moraine
[G]While they camped for the [G7]night
On a [C]trail through the maze
We were [G]sad cause a [A7]child had passed [D7]away
We were [C]lost in our thoughts
In the [G]light of the [E7]fire
When I [A7]heard a small voice softly [D7]say
Can [G]angels fly over the Rockies
How high can a young angel [D7]go
My child lost her playmate
And while [G]I held her [E7]hand
[A7]That’s what she wanted to [D7]know
[G]I’m sure when an angel feels lonely
For a home that she once used to [C]know
No mountain’s too high she’ll be [G]safe in the [E7]sky
For our [A7]Father would [D7]not let her [G]go
No [C]mountain’s too high cause it [G]touches the [E7]sky
And its [A7]heights are all [D7]covered with [G]snow[E7]
If she’s [C]willing to try she’ll be [G]safe in the [E7]sky
For our [A7]Father would [D7]not let her [G]go[/chordpress]

Who is Burl Ives?
– Burl Icle Ivanhoe Ives (June 14, 1909 – April 14, 1995) was an American singer, musician, actor, and author.
Ives began his career as an itinerant singer and guitarist, eventually launching his own radio show, The Wayfaring Stranger, which popularized traditional folk songs. In 1942, he appeared in Irving Berlin’s This Is the Army and became a major star of CBS Radio. In the 1960s, he successfully crossed over into country music, recording hits such as “A Little Bitty Tear” and “Funny Way of Laughin'”. Ives was also a popular film actor through the late 1940s and ’50s. His film roles included parts in So Dear to My Heart (1948) and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958), as well as the role of Rufus Hannassey in The Big Country (1958), for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
Ives is often associated with the Christmas season. He did voice-over work as Sam the Snowman, narrator of the classic 1964 Christmas television special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Ives also worked on the special’s soundtrack, including the songs “A Holly Jolly Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, both of which continue to chart annually on the Billboard holiday charts into the 2020s.
