From the recording Troy Richmond Dixon

Lyrics

Mountain Waltz
 
seeing this ol’ babylon fall back in line
same disposition  but a whole different rhyme,
right on the money and right on time
been to the mountain again
been to the mountain again
 
cold in the kitchen and dry in the well
backed up against it and I nearly fell,
tripping in the city and I stumbled through hell
been to the mountain again
been to the mountain again
 
is it over my head?
is it over this hill?
while I’m living,
I’m dying, I’m dying, I’m dying
I’m dying again
 
jones on the weather phone, checking it twice
reached in his blue jeans and pulled out the dice,
through them into the river and he asked for advice
been to the mountain again
been to the mountain again
 
is it over my head?
is it over this hill?
while I’m living,
I’m dying, I’m dying, I’m dying
I’m dying again
 
too many mirrors, too much t.v.
sweet talk and candy, a reasonable fee,
while I’m begging you, you’re begging me
been to the mountain again
been to the mountain again
 
many before us, the salt in the sea
shamed down to bless us, the righteous to be,
taking no prisoners but no one goes free
been to the mountain again
been to the mountain again
 
is it over my head?
is it over this hill?
while I’m living,
I’m dying, I’m dying, I’m dying
I’m dying again
