Well I live up on a mountain top in unended misery
Cause my love lives upon the other mountain and she named that agony
The folks up there don't marry us but we know our love is true
So every night we slip to the valley and love till one or two
Then I climb climb climb up misery she climbs agony
Goodnight love we'll meet again tomorrow down by the old oak tree

Climb up here and she's up there and they're keepin' us worlds apart
I'm in misery she's in agony and it nearly breaks my heart
The days are long every minute is longer than before
The sun goes down and the moon goes a climbin' and I leave my love once more
Then I climb climb climb...

Now there ain't no future and hide and love and I can't go on this way
I can't live on nighttime love and I want her everyday
There ain't no man and there ain't no mountain that can ever make me stop
I'm gonna bring her down from agony and overcome a mountain top
Till then I'll climb climb climb...
Till then I'll climb climb climb...
