GOING ACROSS THE MOUNTAIN
Traditional, from Frank Proffitt

 
Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well
Going across the mountain
Hear my banjo tell


Going across the mountain
Join the boys in blue
When this war is over
I'll come back to you


Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well
Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well


Got my rations on my back
My powder it is dry
Going across the mount
Crissie don't you cry


Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well
Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well

 
Waitin' for it's good daylight
If nothin happens to me
I'll be way down yonder
In old Tennessee

 
Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well
Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well


'Spect you'll miss me when I'm gone
But I'm going through
When this fighting's over
I'll come back to you

 
Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well
Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well

Going across the mountain
Oh fair ye well
Going across the mountain
Hear my banjo tell
