Windy Mountain

Curly Ray Cline/Unichappell Music Inc., BMI


Oh, how I'd like to be upon a windy mountain
Where the tree tops scrape the sky
Then I would forget all my worries and my troubles
I'll just let the wind blow them by

Oh how I love the sound of the wind when it's howling
For it blows my blues away
It makes me forget the girl that I'm loving
Makes me forget until another day

(repeat chorus)

Let me hear the leaves on the trees when they're singing
Just a moment of relief is all I care
For I've got no sorrow, no heartache or sadness
As long as I can see the trees that sway

(repeat chorus)

Oh, my friends bury me away upon the mountain
Where that old wind will always blow
For I want to rest alone on the mountain
With the howling winds that I love so

Tell my old lover in case you should see her
Just how much I love her, she'll never know
And that I'm gone to rest away upon the mountain
With the howling winds that always blow

(repeat chorus)
