I have risen in the darkened valley,
The one who in my dreams
Of twilight did stand.
And I am off by the moonlight,
The break of the morning,
I am leaving the mountains,

The mountains so grand.

I strayed to a place far from my home,
In search of a lover that I might adore.
And my heart it was aching,
For the forest so gentle,
But my longing for love was with me even more

And many the comings I passed my eye over
And many the moment I emptied the well
Of beauty returned.

They sit with their smiles
And eyes filled with laughter
But sure in the end
With myself waiting still

But when I returned to the forest I found you in
In valleys overshadowed
By mountains so grand,

And I pray that god's angels
Ever protect you
After their own sanctitude,
And I pray to keep safe
Your little white heart.

And now I'm stationed
Where the waterways are braking,
Far from the forest,
A love and to side.
And when I return,
It's to leave me to my dear one,
In my lands in the mountain,

The mountains so grand.

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite. the penny whistling is AMAZING, as is everything else of course, and having grown up right in the middle of the mountains, I completely understand the sentiment. Everytime I drive home from college I listen to this song and it makes me so happy.
