Rocky Mountain High

Original and similar lyrics
He was born in the summer of his 27th year, coming home to a place he'd never been before. He left yesterday behind him you might say he was born again, might say he found a key for every door. When he first came to the mountains His life was far away on the road and hanging by a song. But the strings already broken and he doesn't really care, it keeps changin' fast, and it don't last for long. It's a Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky The shadows from the starlight are softer than a lullabye. Rocky Mountain High, ...in Colorado.... Rocky Mountain High. He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below, saw everything as far as you can see. And they say that he got crazy once and that he tried to touch the sun, and he lost a friend, but kept the memory. Now he walks in quiet solitude, the forest and the stream, seeking grace in every step he takes, his sight is turned inside himself, to try and understand, the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake. And the Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply. Rocky Mountain High, ....in Colorado.... Rocky Mountain High. Now his life is full of wonder, but his heart still knows some fear, of the simple things he can not comprehend. Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more. More people, more scars upon the land. It's the Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky I know he'd be a poorer man if he never saw an Eagle fly Rocky mountain high It's the Colorado Rocky Mountain High, I've seen it raining fire in the sky. Friend around the camp fire and everybody's high.... Rocky Mountain High, Rocky Mountain High, Rocky Mountain High, Rocky Mountain High.

Opaque

Fluoride Klaus
It starts as an offer Some cash in a coffer A kindly intention for the day It goes on and goes on The ground is still frozen The springtime is still so far away In my dictionary The adjectives carry The same weight I try to push away The houses are numbered All pillaged and plundered Their tenants march slowly to the bay Tell me What are the songs that you would take (high mountain) Which old excuses would you make (high mountain) Tell me How many promises you'd break (high mountain) On the mountains of the moon If I were a guru I might try and fool you And tell you it all comes to an end But as you well know now The elements show how The injury's no worse than the mend Tell me How many ideas are at stake (high mountain) Tell me How many rivers build a lake (high mountain) Tell me How many times will your soul ache (high mountain) On the mountains of the moon Tell me Aare all the windows still opaque (high mountain) Tell me If it was cold would you still shake (high mountain) Tell me How many hearts will you break (high mountain) On the mountains of the moon Tell me If it was time would you still wake (high mountain) Tell me Which ten emotions would you fake (high mountain) Tell me How many friends will you forsake (high mountain) On the mountains of the moon ---------------------------------------------------------

She Came From The Mountains

JOHNNY CASH "Happiness Is You"
She came from the mountains Rocky Mountains eagle-high She's from where the mountains lean up to the sky Now she's back among the Rockies where mountain thunders cry Now the wind from off the mountains wails a sad goodbye Once in Colorado Springs at the foot of old Pike's Peak I met a Rocky Mountain girl to my soul her heart let speak We went to tell her parents and an old grandmother said If you'll leave these mountains girl you'll wish that you were dead The next day I took her with me to my far-off Iowa home Way out on the flatlands where the mountain winds don't moan Each footstep we took was happy or at least it shoudn't been But I would find her listening for that same lone mountain wind She came from the mountains... Months passed as fast as antelopes until one fatal dismal dawn I walked to see morning sun shine down on where she was gone I'd known that lately she'd been sad women sometimes get that way I hadn't guessed how much was wrong until that fatal day She had left the weeping letter homesick with mountain names She was somewhere in the Rockies and I knew I'd been to blame So now in Colorado Springs I wait near old Pike's Peak Where once I met a mountain girl that mountain girl I seek She came from the mountains...

Mountain Of Love

JOHNNY RIVERS "In Action!"
Standing on the mountain looking down on the city The way I feel is a doggone pity. Teardrops falling down a mountainside Many times I've been here Many times I've cried We used to be so happy When we were in love High on a mountain of love. Night after night I've been standing here alone Weeping my heart out to cold gray dawn Praying that you're lonely and you'll come here too Hoping just by chance that I get a glimpse of you Trying hard to find you Somewhere I love High on a mountain of love. A mountain of love A mountain of love You should be ashamed We used to be a mountain of love But you just changed your name Way down below there's a half a million people Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers Wedding bells are ringing and they should have been ours That's why I'm so lonely My dreams gone above High on a mountain of love. (Musical interlude) A mountain of love A mountain of love You should be ashamed We used to be a mountain of love But you just changed your name Way down below there's a half a million people Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers Wedding bells are ringing that should have been ours That's why I'm so lonely My dreams gone above High on a mountain of love. High on a mountain of love. High on a mountain of love. High on a mountain of love (fade)
