The Mountain Song Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I came here from the city, a thousand miles away
I came just for a little while, you know I never meant to stay
I meant to take my pleasure, have a good time and be gone
But I fell in love with a lady, now I sing the mountain song

I listened to the music of the night wind in the pines
I've seen the quiet splendor of a field of Columbine
I skied on crystal pathways to a mountain peak so tall
And I walked the mighty summits with the one who made it all

And I fell in love with a lady cause Ive seen her at her best
And Ive walked her wild and rugged paths through her open wilderness
And now I never can betray her, steal her riches and be gone
Cause when you fall in love with a lady
Youve gotta sing the mountain song

Now people come from everywhere to see what they can find
And some take lots of pictures and some just take their time
But theyre some who take her beauty that cant be bought or sold
And they think of only money while destroying wealth untold

But you fall in love with a lady when youve slept upon her breast
And when you've walked her wild and rugged paths
Through her open wilderness
And you never can betray her, steal her riches and be gone
Cause when you fall in love with a lady
Youve gotta sing the mountain song
