"The Mountain" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
Her daddy lost most everything
On horses, whiskey, and wedding rings
A little work and luck my friend
I'm gonna buy that mountain back again

California to Tennessee
Fortune has not yet found me
Empty hands and leather skin
Won't buy that mountain back again

Endless nights, Longer roads
None of which have yet led home
C'mon darlin keep your promise true
Another drink, Another job
And then it's home to you my love
Gonna buy that mountain back for you
Back for you...
Cause if I don't you're an awful lot to lose

When my home again I see
Gonna buy that mountain for you and me
Uphill I'll make the rivers climb
You can swim with the stars in the fading light
Sleep by the river on that mountain high

Endless nights, Longer roads
None of which have yet led home
C'mon darlin keep your promise true
Another drink, Another job
Then it's home to you my love
Gonna buy that mountain back for you
Back for you
Cause if I don't it's an awful lot
If I don't it's an awful lot
If I don't you're an awful lot to lose

Gonna buy that mountain back for you
Work these roads until I do
