The Charlie Daniels Band High Lonesome Lyrics

Last updated: 09/06/2005 12:00:00 PM

Just you and me and a little white pup
Sittin' here waiting for the sun to come up
To keep the chill away
Drinkin' our coffee at the first crack of dawn
Watchin' a doe while she nuzzles her fawn
It's my favorite time of the day

CHORUS:
High Lonesome
God don't ever let this mountain change
High Lonesome
I hope you will always stay the same

Sometimes in the evening when everything's still
Sweet mountain music floats over the hill
On a laurel-scented breeze
Sometimes when nightbirds are scolding the mist
I think I might know where heaven is
It's just above the trees

REPEAT CHORUS

Watchin' my summertimes turnin' to falls
Seein' my SON growing honest and tall
Keeps me satisfied
If I live forever or I die today
All I would ask is you just let me lay
Here on this mountainside

REPEAT CHORUS
