Song title: Mountain child

Mountain child

Gonna take it one more time around
He gets up in the morning as the suns about to rise
And with his guitar singing he goes down upon the green hillside
He sings about a land he said he seen where there's never any night
And sunlight soul just dance and sing before your very eyes
Sing it to me
His father is the sun and his mother is the sky
And today he's to be wed to the wind, he knows not to reason why, yeah
For he is the mountain child
For he is the mountain child
Yeahh yeahhhhhhh
In his cloudy chariot he takes his brand new bride
On into the house of stone down upon the green hill side
There they stay for a year and a day, hands held side to side
They will decieve the daughter who will be the rain to clean your dusty mind

And when the dew has fallen down upon the earthy home
They will set sail on a clipper ship never to return
On into the blood red horizon where the fire of love that still burns
And the beauty of the perfect lover will turn and turn and turn
And the beauty of the perfect lover will turn and turn and turn
You know the beauty of the perfect lover will turn and turn and turn.

Notes: Played live in 1970 as a part of Garden state parkway blues
