"A Child In These Hills" as written by and Jackson Browne....
I am a child in these hills
I am away, I am alone
I am a child in these hills
And looking for water
And looking for life

Who will show me the river
And ask me my name
Is there nobody here who'll do that

Well I have come to these hills
I will come to the river
As I choose to be gone
From the house of my father

I am a child in these hills
I am a child

Chased from the gates of the city
Where no one had touched me
I am away, I am alone
I am a child in these hills
And looking for water
And looking for life

Who will show me the river
And ask me my name
Is there nobody here who'll do that

Well I have come to these hills
I will come to the river
As I choose to be gone
From the house of my father

I am a child in these hills
I am a child
I am a child
I am a child
