  • seated on a mountain in the moonlight.
    His hands held a key to a cabin
    that cabin I'd dreamed of all my life.

    Money makes the rules we have to live by.
    A home is just a place they send the bills.
    God knows why we work and what we pray for.
    So He's building me a cabin in the hills.

    Who knows He might be finished in the morning.
    So I lie awake and take no sleeping pills.
    God knows I'm not happy in a mansion.
    So He's building me a cabin in the hills.

    I live my lonesome life down in a valley with the factories, the rivers, and the mills.
    Sometimes I can almost hear his hammer 'cause he's building me a cabin in the hills.

    Someone has to keep the home fire burning.
    So I sweat and get the harvest in the field.
    Life on earth won't be the same hereafter, so he's building me a cabin in the hills.

    I live my lonesome life down in a valley with the factories, the rivers and the mills.
    Sometimes I can almost hear His hammer 'cause He's
    building me a cabin in the hills. He's building me a cabin in the hills.
