Lyrics

    “HIGH UPON THE MOUNTAIN” © Elana James, Mandiola Music (BMI), 2014.
  • The wind blows through the meadow, a river from on high;
    sighin’ down the mountain, rushing through the pines.

    A breeze blows off the river, and rustles through the grass.
    Sunlight dips below the ridge, shadows fallin’ fast.

    High upon the mountain, you’re the morning breeze.
    Sweepin’ like and eagle, down through my restless dreams.

    Well I came here to forget you; to drive you from my mind.
    To leave your shining blue eyes to the meadows and the pines.

    Oh I tried to leave your voice in a flowing mountain stream
    But every time I’m near it now, it’s you I’m hearin’ sing.

    High upon the mountain, you’re the morning breeze.
    Sweepin’ like an eagle, down through my restless dreams.

    The memory of your tenderness, I thought I could undo.
    But these mountains all surround me now, and tie me still to you.

    Oh I sleep beside the cracklin’ fire, beneath these endless stars.
    And hear only the rhythm of your steady beatin’ heart.
