Text písně The Mountain Song

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'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 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 fall in love with a lady 
 You gotta 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 when you'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 fall in love with a lady 
 You gotta sing a mountain song
