“Through the Mountain” – Floyd Collins

Music and Lyrics: Adam Guettel

Jeb Corliss successfully skydived through a mountain fissure on this day in 2013, a jump known as the “flying dagger.”  The mountain referred to in this song is a cave in this bluegrass musical about a real man who got trapped exploring a Kentucky cavern and died before rescuers could reach him while a media circus gathered in the interim.
