Faron Young – Mountain Of Love lyrics

I'm standing on a mountain looking down on the city
The way I feel is a doggone pity
Teardrops falling down a mountainside
Many times I've been here and many times I've cried
We used to be happy when we were in love high on a mountain of love
Night after night I've been standing here alone
Weeping my heart out till the cold gray dawn
Hoping that you're lonely and you'll come here too
Hoping just by chance that I'll get a glimpse of you
Trying hard to find you somewhere above high on a mountain of love

A mountain of love a mountain of love you should be ashamed
We used to be a mountain of love but you just changed your name
Way down below there's a half a million people
Somewhere there's a church with a great tall steeple
Inside the church there's an altar filled with flowers
Weddin' bells are ringing and they should have been ours
That's why I'm so lonely here up above high on a mountain of love

A mountain of love a mountain of love...
High on a mountain of love high on a mountain of love
