      About "The Mountain Song"

      Lyrics for John Denver - "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 saw the quiet slender
      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 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
