Carry Me Back To The Mountains

print

Carry me back to the mountains
Back beneath the southern sky
Lay me to rest in the mountains
There’s where my sweetheart lies

I get so lonesome and weary
No matter where I roam
So carry me back to the mountains
Back to my home sweet home

I was a wild careless youngster
Longing to roam from the start
I left my home in the mountains
And broke my poor darling’s heart

I caught a train at the crossing
And never told her goodbye
Then someone wrote me a letter
And told me my sweetheart had died
