High on a mountain top 
We live, we love, and we laugh a lot
Folks up here know what they got 
High on a mountain top 
High on a mountain top 

Where the rest of the world's 
Like a little bitty spot 
I ain't comin down no never I'm not 
High on a mountain top 
High on a mountain top

Where I come from the mountain flowers grow wild 
The blue grass sways like it's goin out of style 
God fearin' people simple and real 
'Cause up on the ridge folks that's the deal 
Well my daddy worked down in the dark coal mine 
Shovelin' that coal one shovel at a time 
Never made a lot money din't have much 
But we're high on life and rich in love 

High on a mountain top 
We live, we love, and we laugh a lot
Folks up here know what they got 
High on a mountain top 
High on a mountain top 

Well down in the holler lived my uncle Joe 
He'd pull out his fiddle and rosin his bow 
We'd all sing and dance 
And we ain't gonna stop 
When the moon shine flows behind every rock 

High on a mountain top 
We live, we love, and we laugh a lot
Folks up here know what they got 
High on a mountain top 
High on a mountain top 

Well we lay on our backs and we count the stars
'Cause up here folks heaven's not that far 

High on a mountain top 
We live, we love, and we laugh a lot
Folks up here know what they got 
High on a mountain top 
High on a mountain top 

High on a mountain top 
High on a mountain top
