The Mountain Song Lyrics - John Denver

Review The Song (1)



This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Autograph album, and has also been released on The Country Roads Collection album.


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 a mountain song

I listened to the music
Of the night wind in the pines
I saw the quiet slendour
Of a field of columbine
I skied on crystal pathways
sponsored links
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 I’ve seen her at her best
And I’ve 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 love a mountain lady
You’re gonna sing a 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 they’re some who take her beauty
That can’t be bought or sold
And they think of only money
While destroying wealth untold

But you fall in love with a lady
When you’ve slept upon her breast
And I’ve walked her wild and rugged paths
To her open wilderness
And you never can betray her
Steal her riches and be gone
’Cause when you love a mountain lady
You’re gonna sing a mountain song
