The Mountain’s Call

The Mountain’s Call

Oh~ oh~ oh~
Hear the mountains moan
Deep and low
Of things unknown

Cold the wind
Blows upon your skin
She does rend
Through hides too thin

Oh~ oh~ oh-oh-oh~

The path lays before my feet
The mountain at my back
I have a lengthy trail to beat
Under my heavy pack!

Oh~ oh~ oh-oh-oh~

Winds gust and whine away,
Steal the breath of fools today;
Don’t mind as I bide my way…

Oh~ oh~ oh~
Hear the mountains moan
Deep and low
Of things unknown

Oh~ oh~ oh~
Feel the icy drift
Move and shift
Beneath the swift

Grave her kiss
Feels upon your lip
Her false bliss
Has claimed many a ship

Oh~ oh~ oh-oh-oh~

Where light dances on the snow
I choose to make my way
No matter how the tides may flow
I’ve ground to gain today!

Oh~ oh~ oh-oh-oh~

Snows drift and change away,
Steal the heat of fools today;
Don’t mind as I bide my way…

Oh~ oh~ oh~
Feel the icy drift
Move and shift
Beneath the swift

Oh~ oh~ oh~
See how hot the roar
Of the storm
From days of yore

Bold her mark
Born upon the stark
White-hot arc
That shines within the dark

Oh~ oh~ oh-oh-oh~

Thunder crashes on the peak
Through both day and night
The mountain will not take the weak
And gives the strong their fight!

Oh~ oh~ oh-oh-oh~

Lightning, thunder, clash away
Steal the life of fools today;
Don’t mind as I bide my way…

Oh~ oh~ oh~
See how hot the roar
Of the storm
From days of yore
