Dream Mountain

Music and Lyrics by Mary Ott Copyright 2001

She teaches dances, to the locals, every Saturday night.
Two step tilly, oh won?t ya hold me, won?t you hold me, hold me tight.
Twirls and spins, ain?t got a care
Least that?s the way it looks from here.
And she dares, yes she dares,
To take on, take on the stares.
And she goes up to Dream Mountain.
Yes she goes up, when ere she can.
She goes up to Dream Mountain.
Where she dreams that there?ll be better days,
Watch them pass through a bourbon haze,
Ridin? on the wind, to Dream Mountain.
She hides her feelings oh so well,
Most folks ?round here could never tell.
But she sits alone and hits the gin,
After a few she speaks of him.
Something real, something fine,
Is what they shared.
Now go to sleep, feel the wine,
Ridin? on the wind, to Dream Mountain.
This life she?s leading is killing her,
It takes some time to understand.
Don?t let her heart tell her, stop believin?
Look out over Eden, look out over, to Dream Mountain.
