Run Mountain Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Run mountain, chuck a little hill
Run mountain, chuck a little hill
Run mountain, chuck a little hill
There you'll get your fill
Verse 2
Many miles from my home
Roosters crow for day
Me upstairs with another man's wife
Better be getting away
Verse 3
Verse 4
Way up on the mountain
Give my horn a blow
Thought I heard my true love say
It's coming from my beau
Verse 5
Verse 6
When I'm in the fields hard at work
I sit down to play
Thinking of my own true love
She's many miles away
Verse 7
Verse 8
Wished I had a needle and thread
Fine as I could sew
Sew my pretty girl to my side
Down the road I'd go
Verse 9
Verse 10
Once I had a little girl
Got her from the south
Only thing that's wrong with her
She had too big a mouth
Verse 11
Verse 12
Took my girl to the blacksmiths shop
To have her mouth made small
Turned around a time or two
Swallowed that shop and all
Verse 13
Verse 14
