Man Of The Mountains Lyrics

G Em
1) Now when I was a young man, Kentucky was my home,
G Em
I left my kin and family the better for to roam,
C G C G
I made it to Saint Louie in the year of 29
C G C D
And I met Colonel Henry and he signed me on the line.
Refrain:
C D G
He said, I'll make you a man of the mountains,
C D G
A brother to the wind and the rain,
Em G C D
Oh, you'll track the grizzly bear, Roam where eagles
only dare,
C D
And you're never ever gonna be the same,
C D G
Once you become a man of the mountains.

2) Our outfit being complete, sixty able-bodied men,
We rode into the West, our faces to the wind,
We crossed the broad Platte, and the Sweetwater, too
Then on to the great rendezvous!
(Repeat Refrain)
3) The streams were icy cold but the beaver were like
gold,
The rockies seemed to keep us in its heart rendered
hold,
Our brother was the land and our sister was the sun,
The Indian was our teacher and we lived by the gun.
(Repeat Refrain)
4) But now I am an old man, Montana is my home
My joints have all gone stiff and it's hard for me to
roam,
The West has all been changed and it's nearly all been
tamed,
I know it'll never be the same.
Refrain: But I'm still a man of the mountains,
A brother to the wind and the rain,
Oh, I've tracked the grizzly bear,
Roamed where eagles only dare,
I'm glad that I've never been the same,
Because I'm still a man of the mountains,
Yes, I'm still a man of the mountains.
