"Shining Mountain" as written by and Bruce Cockburn....
I went up on the mountain side
to see what i could see
to see what i could be
on the shining mountain

I watched the day go down in fire
and sink in the valley
and sink into the sea
drown in golden fire

Fireflies danced in the forest night
the trees began to sing
the crags began to sing
above the black forest

I went up on the mountain side
to know what i did know
to know whence i did know
on the crowning mountain
