Sal from the Valley
Loved Al from the alley
And they lived in harmony..
Sally played acoustic
And Al he played electric,
And they both took turns on lead.
They sang for their friends again and again
Of the places they have been,
But their favorite song of all was called
"Up On the Mountain".

Up on the mountain...
Up where the light breaks,
That's where you'll find me.
Gonna leave this worrisome world
And it's troubles behind me.
Up on the mountain
Where the light breaks,
That's where I'll be.
I've barely got time to finish this song
So say farewell to me.

Then into the valley
Came a gal from the galley
With a strange and smilin' face.
Al played acoustic
And Sally played electric
And the gal played a hell of a bass.
And when they sang their harmonies,
The lady dipped right in.
She soon moved in
And lived with them
Up on the mountain.

Up on the mountain
Up where the light breaks
That's where you'll find me.
Gonna leave this worrisome world
And its troubles behind me.
Up on the mountain
Where the light breaks
That's where I'll be.
I've barely got time to finish this song
So say farewell to me.

Now Al from the Alley
Has gone from the Valley...
A sadder but wiser man.
And Sally from the Valley
And the gal from the galley
They lived in mortal sin.
Sal plays acoustic
And the gal plays electric
And sometimes they hold hands.
And late at night you can hear them playin'
Up on the mountain .

Up on the mountain...
Up where the light breaks.
That's where you'll find me.
Gonna leave this worrisome world
And its troubles behind me.
Up on the mountain
Where the light breaks
That's where I'll be.
I've barely got time to finish this song
So say farewell to me.
