Away Out On the Mountain live on KRFC

from Rocky Mountain High: Live on KRFC by Amy Annelle



written by Kelly Harrell
this version by Amy Annelle after Jimmie Rodgers, 1928


I'll pack my grip for a farewell trip
kiss Suzy Jane goodbye at the fountain
I'm goin' says I
to the land of the sky
way out on the mountain

where the wild sheep grow
and the buffalo low
and the squirrels are so many
you can't count them
and I'll make love
to some turtledove
away out on the mountain

oh leee oh lay hey hey hey...

when the north winds blow
and we're gonna have snow
and the rain and the hail comes a-bouncin'
I'll wrap myself in a grizzly bear coat
away out on the mountain

where the snakes are vile and the zebras wild
and the beavers paddle with walkin' canes
I'll patch my boot with a buffalo hide
way out on the mountain

where the whip-poor-will sings me
to sleep at night
and the eagles roost
on the Rocks of Spontane
I'll feast on the meat
and the honey so sweet
away out on the mountain
