Levon Helm – The Mountain chords
The Mountain Levon Helm Written by Steve Earle, recorded by Helm on his album Dirt Farmer. Helms vocal and the instrumentation in his cover of the song gives a sound very reminiscent of The Band. Intro: C G Am / / / / / / / C / / / / Dm / / / F / / / GC Em AmI was born on this mountain a long, long time agoF Dm F GBefore they knocked down the timber and they strip-mined all the coalC Em AmWhen they rose up in the mornin before it was daylightF C Dm CTo go down in that dark hole and come back up at nightI was born on this mountain, this mountains my home She holds and she keeps me from worry and woe Well they took everything she gave, she gave and now shes gone But Ill die on this mountain, this mountains my home I was young on this mountain, but now I am old And I know every hollow, every cool swimmin hole Til one night I lay down and I woke up to find That my childhood was over; I went back down in the mine Theres a hole in this mountain, its dark and its deep And God only knows all the secrets that it keeps Theres a chill in the air only miners can feel Theres ghosts in the tunnels that the company sealed.
