    "'Cross the Green Mountain" Lyrics

    John Frizzell feat. Bob Dylan

    I cross the Green Mountain
    I sit by the stream
    Heaven blazing in my head I
    I dreamed a monstrous dream
    Something came up
    Out of the sea
    Swept through the land of
    The rich and the free

    I look into the eyes
    Of my merciful friend
    And then I ask myself

    Is this the end?
    Memories linger
    Sad yet sweet
    And I think of the souls in heaven who will be

    Alters are burning
    The flames far and wide
    The fool has crossed over
    From the other side
    They tip their caps
    From the top of the hill
    You can feel them come
    All brave blood do spill

    Along the dim
    Atlantic line
    The rapper's land
    Lasts for miles behind

    The lights coming forward
    And the streets are broad
    All must yield
    To the avenging God

    The world is old
    The world is great
    Lessons of life
    Can't be learned in a day
    I watch and I wait
    And I listen while I stand
    To the music that comes
    From a far better land

    Close the eyes
    Of our Captain
    Peace may he know
    His long night is done

    The great leader is laid low
    He was ready to fall
    He was quick to defend
    Killed outright he was
    By his own men

    It's the last day's last hour
    Of the last happy year
    I feel that the unknown
    The world is so dear
    Pride will vanish
    And glory will rot
    But virtue lives
    And cannot be forgot

    The bells
    Of evening have rung
    There's blasphemy
    On the end of the tongue
    Let them say that I walked
    In fair nature's light
    And that I was loyal
    To truth and to right

    Serve God and meet your full
    Look upward beyond
    Beyond the darkness that masks
    The surprises of dawn
    In the deep green grasses
    And the blood stained woods
    They never dreamed of surrendering
    They fell where they stood

    Stars fell over Alabama
    And I saw each star
    You're walking in dreams
    Whoever you are
    Chilled as the skies
    Keen as the frost
    And the ground's froze hard
    And the morning is lost

    A letter to mother
    Came today
    Gunshot wound to the breast
    Is what it did say
    But he'll be better soon
    He's in a hospital bed
    But he'll never be better
    He's already dead

    I'm ten miles outside the city
    And I'm lifted away
    In an ancient light
    That is not of day
    They were calm they were gloomed
    We knew them all too well
    We loved each other more than
    We ever dared to tell
