Blood, Sweat & TearsHigh On The Mountain

(Katz) High on a mountain where the sun still shines And the water runs a little lazy Wild-eyed and lonely, running out of time Some will say I died half-crazy One time a hustler took me for a ride All because I tried to deceive her She broke me down and laughed and left me weak inside The more I lost my pride, the more it pleased her Carry me 'cross the water, I've been over there once before Stayed with a poor man's daughter I can't live in this country no more Death beds and ragged threads are my last home Someone should have known of my ending Born bad, I killed a man for sympathy Ain't much left of me worth defending Carry me 'cross the water, I've been over there once before And I stayed with a poor man's daughter I can't live in this country no more
