Sweet mountain river, come take me away
Way out west of the prairies, is where I'm gonna stay
Sweet mountain river, I'm gonna make you my home
Because you fill me with that sweet sweet joy
And I'm never gonna leave you alone

I, Haven't felt home, In this city, For so long
For so long yeah (x2)

Sweet mountain woman, I'm gonna take you with me
I'm gonna give you everything you want,
And you're never gonna wanna leave
Sweet mountain woman, I'm gonna show you my way
I'm gonna see you at the break of dawn,
I'm gonna see you when the light goes away

I, Haven't felt home, In this city, For so long


I, Haven't felt home, In this city, For so long (x4)

For so long yeah (x4)
