The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Lowlands lyrics


I heard a song that was taught to a baby

And it made the mountain sing

I knew a gift that was given to my lady

It was hidden in a dream

And there's a light in the lowlands

And a river that runs so clean

I'm a poor man feelin' lazy

And the lowlands are callin' my name

(hymnal-like chant)

I knew a man who said he was a stranger

'cause his heart he could not trust

I knew a man who could not face the dangers

Even though he knew he must

And it's hard in the lowlands

And the grasses will turn to rust

But the sun is a fountain

Flowing through the lowland's dust
