They lived together in a dirty old shackAt the edge of the black rocky mountainAnd they drank mountain dew and they lived on the foodThat they grew at the side of the mountainShe’s a mountain woman, he’s her mountain manThey [? ] down the valleyShe’s a mountain woman, he’s her mountain manUneducated but they’re happyMountain woman couldn’t read nor writeBut she knew good from evil, she know wrong from rightWhen the government tried to buy her water rightsHer intuition was her only guideShe’s a mountain woman, he’s her mountain manThey [? ] by the valleyShe’s a mountain woman, he’s her mountain manUneducated but they’re happySpend my life with my mountain womanWe’re uneducated by we’re happyThe civil servant used compulsory purchaseTo acquire the [? ] for the nationThey’ll dig up the land, they’re gonna make a damAnd build a hydroelectric power stationAnd now she lives on the 33rd floorOf a man-made concrete mountainShe got an elevator and refrigeratorAnd an automobile to run around inFast talkin’ lawyers from the governmentWent and beat proud mountain woman downHey mountain woman, take your mountain manThey took your land and flood your valleySpend my life with my mountain womanThey’re uneducated by they’re happy
