Walkin' With A Mountain

Album: Mad Shadows (1970)
  • (ian hunter)

    A mountain train's coming down the track
    She ain't wasting time
    She's carrying me cause I'm going back
    Right to the delaware line
    She knows well I ain't been anywhere
    Because I crawl back every time to her
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain

    Troubles and tears
    I'll take it in years
    I left so many behind
    I may be a train rearranged
    Who knows what I'll find
    But everything's better in my life I know
    I can face any grades that I'm on
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    (alright)
    (hey hey hey)

    (oh) I'm walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    When she talks to me I know she sees
    Where I'm heading to
    She sits winks takes it all in
    Just admires the view
    And if I had a choice in life
    I'd take that mountain for my wife
    I'm walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Walkin' with a mountain
    Jumping jack flash it's a gas
    Jumping jack flash it's a gas
    Jumping jack flash it's a gas
    Jumping jack flash it's a gas
    Jumping jack flash it's a gas
    Jumping jack flash it's a gas
