I want to go back my home in the mountains
Where shade trees grow all around
Where grass grows so green and flowers are still blooming
I'm leaving and that's where I'm bound

I'm only a mand I don't care for riches
I'm tired of living this way
I'm going back to my home in the mountains
And this time I'm going to stay

I want to be free where the birds are still singing
And whippoorwill's call out at night
The air is still clear and neighbors say howdy
And stars in Heaven shine bright

* Refrain
