lyrics

If I had a mountain I'd climb up and look down
Then I would descend and look up from the ground
Then I'd walk around her, and look from the other side
I would keep on looking until
The day I died

If I only had a mountain
I'd be so good to her
If I had a mountain
La di da di da da di dum

When death finally came I know where I'd be laid to rest
I'd tell them, "Carry me up, and lay me down on her rocky breast!"
My flesh would fade away, my soul would sink into her heart of stone
As long as people climbed her
I'd never be alone

If I only had a mountain
I'd be so good to her
If I had a mountain
La di da di da da di dum

In a future time when her peak is worn down flat
Folks'll tell their kids, she didn't always look like
She used to be proud and strong, wasn't no man could rise above her
And although many tried, only one
Could truly love her.
