On a mountain stands a mansion so fine and it looks down on this cabin of mine
I had a love and I loved her true but along came a rich man and loved her to
Now on a mountain in a mansion stands my love

Well he promised he'd buy her diamond rings yes he promised fancy dresses and things
He promised everything indeed but it can't buy the love that her poor heart needs
On a mountain in a mansion so fine
[ guitar ]
Now I know that she's not happy there and I know that she's got thing to bare
My only dream is that someday she'll come right back here and stay
In the cabin in the valley with me
On a mountain in a mansion so fine...
On a mountain in a mansion stands my love n a mountain in a mansion stands my love
