GUEST,tarheel Lyr Add: songs by Uncle Dave Macon (173* d) Lyr Add: OVER THE MOUNTAIN (Uncle Dave Macon) 01 Jun 05


I searched all through the threads here and did not see my favorite Uncle Dave Macon song, OVER THE MOUNTAIN.
..................................................................

1. I'm always lighthearted and easy.
Not a care in this world have I,
Because I am loved by an Ollie
And I wouldn't forget if I tried.
She lives far away o'er the mountain
Where the little birds sing in the trees,
And the cabin's all covered with ivy,
And my Ollie, she's waiting for me.

CHORUS: It's over, it's over the mountain
Where the little birds sing in the trees,
And the cabin's all covered with ivy,
And my Ollie, she's waiting for me

2. Now the day I said goodbye to Ollie,
That day I shall never forget,
For my tears bubbled up from their slumber,
And I fancy I see them yet.
They looked like the curls on the ocean
As she told her tale of love,
And she said, "My dear boy, don't forget me
'Til we meet here again or above." CHORUS
