  • Take me back to the black hills
    The black hills of Dakota
    To the beautiful Indian country
    That I love

    Lost my heart in the black hills
    The black hills of Dakota
    Where the pines are so high
    That they kiss the sky above

    And when I get that lonesome feelin'
    And I'm miles away from home
    I hear the voice of the mystic mountains
    Callin' me back home

    So take me back to the black hills
    The black hills of Dakota
    To the beautiful Indian country
    That I love

    And when I get that lonesome feelin'
    And I'm miles away from home
    I hear the voice of the mystic mountains
    Callin' me back home

    So take me back to the black hills
    The black hills of Dakota
    To the beautiful Indian country
    That I love

    To the beautiful Indian country
    That I love Writer/s: PAUL FRANCIS WEBSTER, SAMMY FAIN
