Song Description

I love to ride my own horses in the mountains. I like the feeling of freedom, and the power and grace of the animals. This song is about those feelings.

Lyrics

1st Chorus

Ridin' high up in the mountains
Feels so good, I feel like shoutin'
Leave my cares in the valley far below
Ridin' high up in the mountains

1st Verse

Load those ponies in the trailer
Watch that eastern sky grow paler
Race the daylight up the canyon
All my worries are abandoned

2nd Verse

Just point old Blaze, he steps out walkin'
There ain't no sound, no need for talkin'
Just muffled hoofbeats on the game trail
And clean, fresh mountain air that we smell

2nd Chorus

When I'm ridin' high up in the mountains
It feels so good, I feel like shoutin'
Leave my cares in the valley far below
Ridin' high up in the mountains

Bridge

Ridin' high, ridin' high
Eye level with the eagle as she flies

Tag

Yeah, we're ridin' high up in the mountains
Yeah, we're ridin' high up in the mountains
