    Lyrics

    I dreamed I saw Jesus last night
    seated on a mountain in the moonlight
    His hands held a key to a cabin
    that cabin I'd dreamed of all my life.

    Money makes the rules we have to live by
    A home is just a place they send the bills
    God knows why we work and what we pray for
    So He's building me a cabin in the hills.

    Who knows He might be finished in the morning
    So I lie awake and take no sleeping pills
    God knows I'm not happy in a mansion
    So He's building me a cabin in the hills.

    I live my lonesome life down in a valley
    With the factories, the rivers, and the mills
    Sometimes I can almost hear his hammer
    'Cause he's building me a cabin in the hills.

    Someone has to keep the home fire burning
    So I sweat and get the harvest in the field.

    Life on earth won't be the same hereafter
    So he's building me a cabin in the hills.
    I live my lonesome life down in a valley
    With the factories, the rivers and the mills.

    Sometimes I can almost hear His hammer
    'cause He's building me a cabin in the hills.
    He's building me a cabin in the hills.
