She Came From the Mountains  Johnny Cash

-P.LaFarge-
Recorded November 29, 1965, Columbia Studio
KEY of D
Chord progression thru spoken parts is the same as the chorus.
[D]She came from the [Em]mountains Rocky [A]Mountains eagle-[D]high
She's from where the [Em]mountains [A]lean up to the [D]sky
Now she's back among the [Em]Rockies where [A]mountain thunders [D]cry
Now the wind from off the [Em]mountains [A]wails a sad good[D]bye
(Spoken):
Once in Colorado Springs at the foot of old Pike's Peak
I met a Rocky Mountain girl to my soul her heart did speak
We went to tell her parents and an old grandmother said
If you'll leave these mountains girl you'll wish that you were dead
The next day I took her with me to my far-off Iowa home
Way out on the flatlands where the mountain winds don't moan
Each footstep we took was happy or at least it should've been
But I would find her listening for that same lone mountain wind
She came from the mountains Rocky Mountains eagle-high
She's from where the mountains lean up to the sky
Now she's back among the Rockies where mountain thunders cry
Now the wind from off the mountains wails a sad goodbye
(Spoken):
Months passed as fast as antelopes until one fatal dismal dawn
I waked to see morning sun shine down on where she was gone
I'd known that lately she'd been sad women sometimes get that way
I hadn't guessed how much was wrong until that fatal day
She had left the weeping letter homesick with mountain names
She was somewhere in the Rockies and I knew I'd been to blame
So now in Colorado Springs I wait near old Pike's Peak
Where once I met a mountain girl that mountain girl I seek
She came from the mountains Rocky Mountains eagle-high
She's from where the mountains lean up to the sky
Now she's back among the Rockies where mountain thunders cry
Now the wind from off the mountains wails a sad goodbye
