Going Across the Mountain

print

    Going across the mountain
    Oh fair ye well
    Going across the mountain
    Hear my banjo tell

Going across the mountain
Join the boys in blue
When this war is over
I’ll come back to you

Got my rations on my back
My powder it is dry
Going across the mountain
Crissie don’t you cry

Waitin’ ‘fore it’s good daylight
If nothin happens to me
I’ll be way down yonder
In old Tennessee

‘Spect you’ll miss me when I’m gone
But I’m going through
When this fightin’s over
I’ll come back to you
