They buried her on the side of the mountain There my darling sleeps in the ground I stayed by her side 'til they covered her over And the last old shovel was laid down Till the last old shovel was laid down, laid down Till the last old shovel was laid down I stayed by her side and I cried and I cried When the last old shovel was laid down I think of her when it's stormy and raining In that mountain far away I long to be laid by her side on that mountain There'll be rest for me on that day There'll be rest for me on that day, that day There'll be rest for me on that day I long to be laid by her side on that mountain On that mountain far away Oh bury me where my true love is sleeping Where she lies in that lonesome ground I'll find sweet rest by the side of my darling When the last old shovel is laid down When the last old shovel is laid down, laid down When the last old shovel is laid down I'll find sweet rest by the side of my darling When the last old shovel is laid down *************************** ALTERNATE VERSION: Oh, they burried her on the side of the mountain Now my darlin`s sleepin' in the ground I stayed right there 'til they covered her over 'Til the last old shovel`s laid down 'Til the last old shovel is laid down 'Til the last old shovel is laid down I stayed right there and I was crying and crying 'Til the last old shovel`s laid down I think of her in the storm and in the rain In the mountain far away And I long to be layin' by the side of my darlin' There`ll be rest for me on that day There'll be rest for me on that day There'll be rest for me on that day Oh, I long to be layin' by the side of my darlin' There`ll be rest for me on that day Oh, bury me where my true love is sleeping Where she lies on that cold lonesome ground I'll find sweet peace by the side of my darlin' When the last old shovel is laid down When the last old shovel is laid down When the last old shovel is laid down I'll find sweet peace by the side of my darlin' When the last old shovel is laid down **************************
