"Mountain Music" as written by and Randy Owen....
You see that mountain over there,
Yea, one of these days
I'm going to climb that mountain.

Oh play me some mountain music.
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play.
Then I'll float on down the river to the Cajun hideaway.

Drift away like Tom Sawyer.
Ride a raft with old Huck Finn.
Take a nap like Rip Van Winkle.
Lay streaming again.

Oh play me some mountain music.
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play.
Then I'll float on down the river to the Cajun hideaway.

Swim across the river.
Just to prove that I'm a man.
Spend the day be'in lazy.
Just be'in natures friend.
Climb a long tall hickery.
Bending over skin'n cats.
Playing baseball with shired rocks.
Using sawmill slats for bats.

Play some back home come on music
That comes from the heart.
Play somethin with lots of feeling.
'Cause that's where music has to start.

Oh play me some mountain music.
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play.
Then I'll float on down the river to the Cajun hideaway.

Hey hey

Oh play me mountain music.
Oh play me mountain music.
Oh play me mountain music.
Oh play.

    General CommentI can't believe I am the first to post on this song! It means so much to me. I love these kind of songs that make me think about living to have fun, not living to be serious.

    General CommentTis song is very simple and easy to remember. This might be one reason why I like it so well. Another reason might be just because I grew up listening to this kind of music. The world may never know.

    General CommentDefinately my favourite song by Alabama. I love the nostalgic feeling of the song coupled with the lyrics that remind me of running through the woods with my cousins or swimming in the creek by my grandparents' house. . . Well at least that's what I think of. It makes me feel at home since this is the sort of music my parents had playing in the house when I was little. Ah, memories.
