Isn't there a trail called The Devil's Backbone close to Norfork, AR on the White River? I swore I saw a sign for that last time I was camping up there and your song was stuck in my head all weekend.
Probably. I think "The Devil's Backbone" is a pretty common name for trails, ridges...etc. The one I was referencing in our song of the same name is near my Grandparent's old farm near the Ozark/Howell County line in Southern Missouri.
