Lyrics/Notes

High up in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Still and lying on his back
Our ancient host, Grandfather Mountain

Many million years and counting
Laying on his back, counting stars
Up in the sky, above his head

Eyes and nose of solid granite,
They’re the oldest eyes upon the
Planet, watching ages come and go

A cloud comes by and sits his upon nose
He blows it down the ancient valley
Towards the busy town

Tell me old man, what are you dreamin’?
Tell me old man, how are you today
Tell me old man, what are you dreamin’?
Tell me old man how are you today
Hey, hey, hey!

Find a day and cross the
Swinging bridge and climb his
face and feel the grace the
blowing breeze and shining sun

While you’re here and have a minute,
Take the view and glory in it
Year by year floating by Grandfather Mountain

Tell me old man, what are you dreamin’?
Tell me old man, how are you today?
Tell me old man, what are you dreamin’?
Tell me old man, how are you today?
Hey, hey, hey!

Just watching the years fade away
Just watching the years fade away
Just watching the years wash away
Just watching the years wash away

Just watching the years wash away
Just watching the years fade away

Tell me old man, what are you dreamin’
Tell me old man, how are you today
Tell me old man, what are you dreamin’
Tell me old man, how are you today
Hey, hey, hey!

Just watching the years fade away
Just watching the years fade away
Just watching the years wash away
Just watching the years wash away

Just watching the years wash away
Just watching the years fade away
