BRAVE MOUNTAINEERS Gordon Lightfoot 1972 Born in the country and I like that country smile Of the little girls and boys, they remind me of a child That I knew and a big harvest moon That shone by suppertime in the dusty afternoon. And I need to be there When the autumn wind goes singing through the trestle we would climb Like brave mountaineers We never were much bothered by time. Born in the country and I like that country song We played for just a nickel every time we got to town And I bought you a dime diamond ring In the hayloft we would play, we were princesses and kings. And I need to be there When the world gets too heavy and the shadows cross my mind Like brave mountaineers We never were much bothered by time. Born in the country and I like that country way Of the uncles aunts and cousins and the card games they would play While the young ones slept overhead Beneath the quilts that mother made, when all the prayers were said. And I need to be there When the autumn wind goes singing through the trestle we would climb Like brave mountaineers We never were much bothered by time. (bridge) And I need to be there When the world gets too heavy and the shadows cross my mind Like brave mountaineers We never were much bothered by time.
