lyrics

He put on his coat and his boots
his favorite hat and a cigarette
a climb of steps and regrets
up on the mountainside.

He had a gun in his bag
just outside the frame
he had big plans for today
up on the mountainside.

and as the sun was about to go down
grandpa loaded up chamber one
the heavens were about to run
up on that mountainside.

He said, "Lord I got a message for you
and it's been eatin me up inside.
I thought id let you know where we stand
up on this mountainside
up on this mountainside"

what have you done, my friend?
lost in the ice in the wind
come back and play and we'll drink
anything is better than this

as the sun was about to go down
grandpa loaded up chamber one
the heavens were about to run
up on that mountain side

la-da-da-da-da-da-da....
la-da-da-da-da-da-da....
