Mountain Song (Holly Near Cover)

lyrics

I have dreamed on this mountain
Since first I was my mother's daughter,
And you can't just take my dreams away,
Not with me watching.
You may drive a big machine,
But I was born a great big woman,
And you can't just take my dreams away
Without me fighting.

Well this old mountain raised my many daughters.
Some died young.
Some are still living.
And if you come here for to take my mountain,
Well we ain't come here to give it.

I have dreamed on this mountain
Since first I was my mother's daughter,
And you can't just take my dreams away
Not with me watching.
You may drive a big machine,
But I was born a great big woman,
And you can't just take my dreams away
Without me fighting.

No, you can't just take my dreams away.
