Lyrics to "Leatherwood" by Ozark Mountain Daredevils

If I fell off to sleep and did not wake
Would the Lord my soul to take
And could the land that I've known also die
Do you think of you and wonder whyDown in leatherwood
That thought we leave behind
Down in leatherwood
Country love's gonna steal your mind
And we ain't never gonna be blue, be blueWas a mad house all flooded by the rain
Or did I once live it in a dream
Throwing all good minutes to the sea
Did you know the sky can also bleedDown in leatherwood
That thought we leave behind
Down in leatherwood
Country love's gonna steal your mind
And we ain't never gonna be blue, be blueAn inner voice it is telling me my verse
Oh and if you're listening it can only make it worse
It may be that there is a master plan
On he who knows, he must be a great manDown in leatherwood
Hat thought we leave behind
Down in leatherwood
Country love's gonna steal your mind
And we ain't never gonna be blue, be blue
Be blue,
Be blue,
Be blue

The Ozark Mountain Daredevils were started in 1971 in Springfield, Missouri in an attempt by the singer/songwriter members to have a vehicle in which to display and promote their music. At first, they played in bars and on porches. However, a record executive from A&M records discovered the band, and they began their recording path.

The original members of the band consisted of:
John Dillion - (vocals, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, piano, harp, autoharp, dulcimer, jawbone, percussion, keyboards)
Mike "Supe" Granda - (vocals, bass, acoustic guitar, mandolin, percussion, chicken squawks)
Buddy Brayfield - (vocals, oboe, piano, harpsichord, organ, percussion, electric piano)
Randle Chowning - (vocals, lead electric & acoustic guitars, harp, national steel, mandolin)
Steve Cash - (vocals, harp, percussion, harpsichord)
Larry Lee - (vocals, drums, acoustic guitar, synthesizer, piano, percussion, saw, saw & board)

The Daredevils peaked commercially in 1973-1974 and were best known for "Jackie Blue" and "If You Wanna Get To Heaven", which both got national coverage. However, there was a wide range of music that the Daredevils produced that was widely missed. The influences of the locale and the talents of the band members produced some unique sounds that could be related to "rockabilly" influences. There was also a good body of music that could be classified as country, rock, ballads, folk or blues.

The band changed throughout the years, but played prevantly throughout the '70s and gained and lost members during that time. To this day, there is still a loyal and avid fan following. There are discs still being released by the group, mostly of past performances in the '70s. In addition, many of the members are currently still working on other interests including Randle Chowning, Larry Lee ("Beyond Reach") Mike "Supe" Granda, and possibly others.

A reunion concert was held in Springfield, Missouri at the refurbished Gilloiz Theatre, in May of 2007. The three nights they performed were entirely sold out, weeks in advance of the concert.
