[Intro]
Am  F  G  F


[Verse 1]
C F CWell my father built a mansion on the mountain
Am F GI was chasing my Teresa 'round a tree
C FWe were kicking precious stones, sinking ships and swimming home
Am F GOnly crazy for the comfort of our clothes
[Verse 2]
C F CWell my father built a mansion on the mountain
Am F GMy Teresa dragged a rag across my brow
C FShe said, "the weather's never fair, the wind can only blow your hair"
Am F GAnd I believed her well enough or didn't care
[Bridge]
Em Dmaj7Everyone knows and they don't know
Em Dmaj7Chandelier light ain't love
Em Dmaj7It just watches as the time goes
A# Dm Em FAcross the marble floor, out the old mill door
Dm Em F GEven rain can hear it running off the road
[Interlude] C F C Am F G [Verse 3]
C F CWell my father built a mansion on the mountain
Am F GMy Teresa threw me kisses through the cold
C FWe read the writing on the wall, braced each other for the fall
Am F GThere's only one way or the mountain after all
[Verse 4]
C F CWell my father built a mansion on the mountain
Am F GIt was me and my Teresa against the world
C FWe took all the river had to give, broke the bed and bought a crib
Am F GBut left the mountain mansion, nothing to forget
[Outro] A# Dm C F Dm C F G C
