Lyrics
Ran down the mountain side,
West down the hill (2x)
Deep down there, full of rocks they say,body buried on that layer of grey
Came on down the mt. side,
Oh little fear, he did hide,
Way on back through hills so far away
Carried that pail on down home as she told him do,"Boy you better listen for that song,"
As he gathered water round , & took it up the bank, Father looked at him, and said real frank, he said,"Boy oh boy, you do what your told, ya never get light and ya never grow old, but until that day you won't know, just where to go, Until that day, God rest his soul."
~Solo~
Oh boy did just what is told, oh, every afternoon, so his soul wouldn't be sold,
Took that water,ran it up quick, to edge of the house, with the pile of bricks.
Dad said son, "Now ya did done good, now go play ahead, like an old schoolboy should.
"Way on down the mountainside, the sunset turns to gold, He said,"Way on down the mountainside, well the sunset turns to gold"
"See the light of heaven shine down, as we gather round for souls," Many a year's you wonder, about that faded Brooke, does she have your heart & soul my friend? Did ya take the time to look?
As the water gather's round your head, just to see how tall you are,
Well ya took a trip down the mountainside, hey there, there you are,
Headed out west with a bottle of whiskey and a brandy,gripped on tight, she said her final prayers and went to bed, without a single word of blight,
As the sun did rise this morning,well the soul it was washed clean, but as the man ran off to work that day, he couldn't believe what he had seen,
Well the light came down from Heaven, where the souls were glowin' round, Well the light did shine upon that face, until broken,lonely,old frown,now,
Now he lost that soul and witness, cause he couldn't take'em down, so the Man upstairs went and won again, "I don't want hear you fuck around," He said, " I'll take that body, mind, & soul, and I'll wash it down the line," With a passive voice inside him, well, he didn't want leave any of that behind..........

Needs work
I don't think this song is that bad, but the production just kills it. Need better sound quality even for low fi. But I'd like to hear this song remade on a better level. The bridge is really nice.
