Ozark Mountain Daredevils - Lowlands lyrics


I heard a song that was taught to a baby

and it made the mountain sing

I knew a gift that was given to my lady

it was hidden in a dream

and there's a light in the lowlands

and a river that runs so clean

I'm a poor man feelin' lazy

and the lowlands are callin' my name

(hymnal-like chant)

I knew a man who said he was a stranger

'cause his heart he could not trust

I knew a man who could not face the dangers

even though he knew he must

and it's hard in the lowlands

and the grasses will turn to rust

but the sun is a fountain

flowing through the lowland's dust
