The Mountain

Levon Helm

Written by Steve Earle, recorded by Helm on his album Dirt Farmer.  Helm’s 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 / / / G

C Em AmI was born on this mountain a long, long time ago
F Dm F GBefore they knocked down the timber and they strip-mined all the coal
C Em AmWhen they rose up in the mornin’ before it was daylight
F C Dm CTo go down in that dark hole and come back up at night
I was born on this mountain, this mountain¬ís my home She holds and she keeps me from worry and woe Well they took everything she gave, she gave and now she¬ís gone But I¬íll die on this mountain, this mountain¬ís my home I was young on this mountain, but now I am old And I know every hollow, every cool swimmin¬í hole ¬ĎTil one night I lay down and I woke up to find That my childhood was over; I went back down in the mine There¬ís a hole in this mountain, it¬ís dark and it¬ís deep And God only knows all the secrets that it keeps There¬ís a chill in the air only miners can feel There¬ís ghosts in the tunnels that the company sealed.
