Mountain Music

Lyrics

Print-Friendly Lyrics

Oh play me some mountain music
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play
Then I’ll float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway

Drift away like Tom Sawyer
Ride a raft with old Huck Finn
Take a nap like Rip Van Winkle
Lay streaming again.

Oh play me some mountain music
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play
Then I’ll float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway

Swim across the river
Just to prove that I’m a man
Spend the day be’in lazy
Just be’in nature’s friend
Climb a long tall hickery
Bending over skin’n cats
Playing baseball with chert rocks
Using sawmill slats for bats

Play some back home come on music
That comes from the heart
Play somethin’ with lots of feeling
‘Cause that’s where music has to start

Oh play me some mountain music
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play
Then I’ll float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway.

Hey hey

Oh play me mountain music
Oh play me mountain music
Oh play me mountain music
Oh play
