Jeremiah Johnson / Intro:

The Ballad of Jeremiah Johnson – Tim McIntire 

Jeremiah Johnson made his way into the mountains
Bettin’ on forgettin’ all  the troubles that he knew
The trail was wide and narrow
And the eagle  or the sparrow
Showed the path he was to follow as they flew.
A  mountain man’s a lonely man
And he leaves a life behind
It ought to  have been different, but oftimes you will find,
That the story doesn’t  always go that way you had in mind.
Jeremiah’s story was that kind. . .
Jeremiah’s story was that kind.

The Way that you Wander … Tim McIntire  

The way that you wander is the way  that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

Jeremiah Johnson (Vocal Mix #2): Tim McIntire 

An Indian says you search in vain for what you cannot find.
He says  you’ll find a thousand ways for runnin’ down your time.
An Indian didn’t  scream it, he said it in a song,
And he’s never been known to be wrong.
He’s never been known to be wrong.

    Looks as if Delle Bolton (the spelling is different from the one by her picture) retired from films to housewifedom. I was able to find this about her.

      Thank You Richard.

      She is really good in Jeremiah Johnson. Has a very good screen presence. So I wondered that she didn’t do more.

    This has always been one of my favorite films. The cinematography is gorgeous. Best of all Robert Redford, whom I admire as a human being, and who has had the good fortune to be in some great films, wasn’t challenged to act much.
    My own family, Garrison, goes back to the 18th century and I have a ancestor who married a cousin of Jefferson Davis, and Willam Loyd, the abolitionist, is also hangin out in the family tree. I wonder if John Garrison is also in there somewhere?

      Lots of Western fans love this movie. It has something special.
      I questioned casting Redford in this role, but he does a great job.

      That’s very interesting about your ancestors. Garrison ? I suppose you could investigate that. ??
