You see that mountain over there,
yea, one of these days
I'm going to climb that mountain.
Oh play me some mountain music.
Like Grandma and Grandpa used to play.
Then I'll float on down the river to the Cajun hideaway.
Drift away like Tom Sawyer.
Ride a raft with old Huck Finn.
Take a nap like Rip Van Winkle.
Lay streaming again.
Swim across the river.
Just to prove that I'm a man.
Spend the day bein' lazy.
Just bein' natures friend.
Climb a long tall hickery.
Bending over skin 'n cats.
Playing baseball with shired rocks.
Using sawmill slats for bats.
