By: jimmy buffett, buzz cason1993It’s been a little fever and maybe bucky beaverWho made me pull the lever and leave once againWe chose just not to marry but go ahead and carryAll of our earthly goods and go to live out in the woodsMidnight on the mountain and you watch the clouds roll byCountry air’s appealin’ but there’s more than meets the eyeMeets the eye...Moonlight on the cabin it’s too damn cold to sleepYour head turns from my pillow so I can’t see you weepSee you weep...sarah sleepStoned alone together least the city streets have drainsStanding here ass high up in the rain longin’ for bostonOnce again...Sarah’s cold and hungry and the baby’s due any dayStuck up in high country and it don’t thaw out ’til mayHere we’ll stay...Mountain fever’s on me and tonight the truck broke downDoctor in the valley but we can’t get in to townHe don’t come ’round...Sarah cried for boston and her mother late last nightI reassured her everything was tight but I’m not sure thatIt’s all right...Midnight on the mountain and you watch the clouds roll byCountry air’s appealin’ but there’s more than meets the eyeMeets the eye...
