TOMORROW MOUNTAIN From the Broadway Musical "Beggar's Holiday" (1946) (John Latouche / Duke Ellington) Alfred Drake (Broadway Production) - 1946 Frankie Laine - 1951 Lena Horne - 1957 Jo Stafford - 1958 Ernestine Anderson - 1960 Gene Lowell Singers - 1960 David Serero - 2012 As recorded by FRANKIE LAINE: Things look gloomy where we are It's time to follow our lucky star, but where, oh, where Pack your bags and take my hand Gonna show you promised land beyond compare We are trapped in Twilight Alley There is no place we can run But I have news of a wonderful valley Beyond the new rising sun Just across Tomorrow Mountain There’s a happy city, they say Where the people are grand and time is planned So it’s Christmas every day By a scotch and soda fountain There’s a treat in store for us guys Under cigarette trees, we’ll take our ease While the cops fan off the flies Just across Tomorrow Mountain There’s a life that‘s fancy and free On a platinum street we’ll plant our feet It’s a land that’s fair to see Won’t you travel there with me (Just across Tomorrow Mountain) (Every girl is Queen of the May) And all the kitchens, I’m told, are made with gold And there ain’t no bills to pay (Won't you cross that distant mountain) (Where it rains Chanel No.5) And the gutters, I think, are lined with mink While the diamond bushes thrive (Pigs trot around already roasted) Won’t you have a slice of ham (Marshmallows bloom, already toasted) (And the clouds are made of marmalade and jam) Can’t you see Tomorrow Mountain Can’t you watch it shimmer and glow (It’s a wonderful town that’s upside-down) (And it’s full of easy dough) Let's pack our bags and go (Let's pack our bags tonight and go to) Tomorrow Mountain (Let's pack our bags and go) ******************** As recorded by LENA HORNE: Just across Tomorrow Mountain There’s a happy city, they say Where the people are grand and time is planned So it’s Christmas every day ‘Neath the scotch and soda fountain There’s a treat in store for us guys Under cigarette trees, we’ll take our ease While the cops fan off the flies There you will be a lucky sinner With no conscience for your guide Each horse you pick will be a winner And the doors of every bank are open wide For across Tomorrow Mountain There’s a life that‘s fancy and free On a platinum street we’ll plant our feet It’s the land that’s fair to see Won’t you hurry there with me Just across Tomorrow Mountain Every girl is Queen of the May And the kitchens, I’m told, are lined with gold And there ain’t no bills to pay Can’t you cross that distant mountain Where it rains Chanel No.5 And the gutters, I think, are paved with mink And the diamond bushes thrive Pigs trot around already roasted Won’t you have a slice of ham Marshmallows bloom, already toasted And the clouds are made of marmalade and jam Can’t you see Tomorrow Mountain Can’t you watch it glimmer and glow It’s a wonderful town that’s upside-down And it’s full of easy dough Won’t you pack your bags and go ******************** As recorded by JO STAFFORD: Tomorrow, Tomorrow Mountain Let's go across, let's go across Let's go just across Come on, let's go across Just across Tomorrow Mountain There's a happy city they say Where the people are grand and time is planned So it's Christmas every day By a scotch and soda fountain There's a treat in store for us guys Under cigarette trees we'll take our ease While the cops fan off the flies There you will be a lucky sinner With no conscience for your guide Each horse you pick will be a winner And the doors of every bank are open wide Just across Tomorrow Mountain There's a life that's fancy and free On a platinum street we'll plant our feet It's a land that's fair to see Won't you travel there with me (Instrumental Break) Won't you cross that distant mountain Where it rains Chanel No 5 And the gutters, I think, are lined with mink And the diamond bushes thrive Pigs trot around already roasted Won't you have a slice o' ham Marshmallows bloom, already toasted And the clouds are made of marmalade and jam Can't you see Tomorrow Mountain Can't you watch it shimmer and glow It's a wonderful town that's upside down And it's full of easy dough Won't you travel there with me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2018)
