Do you go down
On the side of Sugar Mountain?
When leaves are brown
And the sunlight splits the sky
I have found that
The sea breeze tears at the ocean
And I hope somebody
Will love me 'fore I die

Oh willow, weep no more my lady
Though the days are long and lazy
And the sun sets heavy on the sky
Weep no more, I'm homeward bound
I'm gonna tear this mountain down
You're gonna be somebody bye and bye

Sugar Mountain trees are made of candy
And the sun drips honey in your eyes
Every fountain's water tastes like brandy
And I know somebody
Will love me 'fore I die

Oh willow, weep no more my lady
Though the days are long and lazy
And the sun sets heavy on the sky
Weep no more, I'm homeward bound
I'm gonna tear this mountain down
You're gonna be somebody bye and bye

Sugar Mountain lovers taste like honey
And their lips like elderberry wine
Every other stranger pales and withers
And I hope somebody
Will love me 'fore I die

Oh willow, weep no more my lady
Though the days are long and lazy
And the sun sets heavy on the sky
Weep no more, I'm homeward bound
I'm gonna tear this mountain down
You're gonna be somebody bye and bye
