O’er the Lonely Mountain

[Verse 1]

Far o’er the lonely mountain high

Where the brave golden eagle flies

Skimming o’er the valley searching for food

It’s so hard, so hard, so hard to bear

When a hungry mouth cries for more
[Verse 2]

Circling, ever circling around

Constant, with his eyes to the ground

Watching every movement, hearing every sound

It’s so hard, so hard, so hard to bear

When a hungry mouth cries for more

[Bridge]

There’s no restless runnin’ water, no fish to be found

Therе’s no scurryin’ in the bushes, small creaturеs runnin’ ’round

No badger, no weasel, no fox on the run

There’s no dogs out chasin’ rabbits, no poacher with his gun

There’s no snakes slippin’ and a-slidin’ or sleepin’ in the sun

There’s no trees, God, there’s no trees[Guitar Solo][Verse 3]

So beautiful the earth lies below

A perfect lady dressed all in green

Such a rich El Dorado full of life

It’s so hard, so hard, so hard to bear

When a hungry mouth cries for more[Verse 4]

‘Tis surely not a crime to be born

To hunger, woodland down to the ground

To drink from her sweet flowin’ stream

It’s so hard, so hard, so hard to bear

When a hungry mouth cries for more[Outro]

It’s so hard, so hard, so hard to bear

When a hungry mouth cries for more
