Come On to the Mountains

This song was specifically written for hikers, backpackers, climbers, mountaineers, skiers, snowboarders, or anyone else who appreciates the mountains, to crank up while driving into the wilderness, the city gradually disappearing in their rear view mirrors. But even if you're not one of those people, hopefully you'll enjoy the music.

Lyrics

It's Friday morning in the city
I'm standing at a four-lane crosswalk
buses and cars are zipping round me
everybody's in an awful hurry

frowns upon their busy faces
they all think they're going places
working long hours every day
hoping that they'll earn more pay

But as I stand there at the crossroads
I look off in the distance
I see the majesty and strength of the surrounding hills

and the mist is dancing with their
craggy peaks and I know that's a place
where silence and a slower pace wait patiently...

for you and me....
for you and me....
for you and me....

Come on, Come on to the Mountains
leave this craziness behind

Come on, Come on to the Mountains
leave this craziness behind

Step by step the miles pass
from Springer up to Mount Katahdin
and memories I've long forgotten
find the time to surface

Step by step I find my way
along the seldom traveled path
from the future to the past
I'm hoping to find purpose

Cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon cmon

Come on, Come on to the Mountains
leave this craziness behind

Come on, Come on to the Mountains
leave this craziness behind

Gonna lace up my boots yeah
Gonna throw on my pack yeah
Gonna lace up my boots yeah
Gonna throw on my pack yeah
and I'm gone!
