Save me a mountain to climb. Save me a river to cross. At midnight the
Sound of the stockyard trains. Wail in the distance and rattle my chains.
Save me a valley like the one in the distance. Save me a canyon to swallow
This jail. I wanna stand outside and feel the rain when it falls.
Breathe the air on the other side of these walls
Save a mountain for me. Save a mountain for me.
It sounds like a choir when the chaingangs shout. Save me a mountain for
When I get out.
Save me a desert, just me and the sand. Save me a sea to sail.

In my heart I know I'm too weak to be strong.
I've been wasting away in this jail for too long.
Save a mountain for me. Save a mountain for me.
It's like a choir of fallen angels when the chaingangs shout. Save me a
Mountain for when I get out. "Has the jury reached a verdict?" "We have
Your honour."
"How does the jury find?" "We find the defendant guilty." "Do the
Defendants have anything to say on their behalf, before the court pronounces
Sentence?"
Save me a mountain to climb. Save me a river to cross.
At midnight the sound of the stockyard trains.
Still wail in the distance and rattle my brains.
Save me a valley like the one in the distance.
Save me a canyon to swallow this jail.
If only I could tie all these dreams together.
I could break out of the big house and run forever.
Save a mountain for me. Oh save a mountain for me. It's like a choir of
Fallen angels when the chaingangs shout. Save me a mountain for when I get
Out. Save a mountain for me.
Save it, save it. Save a mountain for me.
It sounds like a choir when the chaingangs shout. Save a mountain for me.
Save a mountain for when I get out.
I need a mountain. Save a mountain...
