i came upon a mountain heart
and craned my neck to see the tip
it was a little painting he did
it was a'greener than i've ever seen them all
and tattered as if flew away
did limp a bit to ease the pain
i came upon a mountain heart

it caused an ache in my belly
a sweat on my brow
the height of it scared me-
that's a long way to fall
that's a long way... to fall
a long way to fall
that's a long way to fall


i came upon a mountain heart
and all the foolish little girls
say the heartless are less immature
but if prowess climbs a hilly yard
just waves across a grassy knoll
that you could ride your mower o'er

i came upon a mountain heart
it caused an ache in my belly
a sweat on my palm
my pace it stayed steady
but the distance was so long

yeah the distance... was long
the distance was long,
yeah the distance was long

i came upon a mountain heart
and oh i saw it's beauty pass
into a little photograph
that i've folded in my pocket tight
close enough but out of sight
a phone call maybe once a night

i came upon a mountain heart
a mountain heart
that old mountain heart
that old mountain heart
