Down From The Mountain

BlackHawk
Red is the sun that falls
Down through the valley
Pine-draped in shadow
Blue are the eyes that shine
Barefoot and laughing
She runs through the back of my mind
Everytime

Deep by the songs that sing
'Bout still mountain moonlight
And cool running streams
I've been away too long
But the song never [?]
It's all comin' back to me now
Anyhow

Born to be living high in the blue ridge
Sweet mountain music around
I've been laid low by the cities that glow
And the only thing I've ever found
Is you can't take my heart down from the mountain

I'm like the morning mist
That hangs in the treetops
Waitin' for daylight
I love the lonesome cry
Breaking the silence
The song of the lone nightingale
Never fails

Born to be living high in the blue ridge
Sweet mountain music around
I've been laid low by the cities that glow
And the only thing I've ever found
Is you can't take my heart down from the mountain

I pray that her love waits for me there by and by
Her blue eyes are shining up where the mountains reach out and touch the sky

Born to be living high in the blue ridge
Sweet mountain music around
I've been laid low by the cities that glow
And the only thing I've ever found
Is you can't take my heart down from the mountain

Down, down from the mountain
Down, down from the mountain
