Words and Music by Randy Owen

Chorus:
Oh, play me some mountain music, like grandma and grandpa used to play.
Then I'll float on down the river to a Cajun hideaway

Drift away like Tom Sawyer, ride a raft with ol' Huck Finn.
Take a nap like Rip Van Winkle, daze dreamin' again.

Chorus

Swim across the river, just to prove that I'm a man.
Spend the day bein' lazy, just bein' nature's friend.
Climb a long tall hick'ry. Bend it over, "skinnin' cats."
Playin' baseball with chert rocks, usin' sawmill slabs for bats.

Bridge:
Play some back-home, come-on music that comes from the heart.
Play something with lots of feelin', 'cause that's where music has to start

Oh, play me some mountain music, like grandma and grandpa used to play.
Then I'll float on down the river to a Cajun hideaway, hey hey.

Tag:
Oh play me mountain music
Oh play me mountain music
Oh play me mountain music
Oh play me mountain music
