Just you and me and a little white pup
Sittin' here waiting for the sun to come up
To keep the chill away
Drinkin' our coffee at the first crack of dawn
Watchin' a doe while she nuzzles her fawn
It's my favorite time of the day
CHORUS:
High Lonesome 
God don't ever let this mountain change
High Lonesome 
I hope you will always stay the same
 Sometimes in the evening when everything's still  Sweet mountain music floats over the hill
On a laurel-scented breeze  Sometimes when nightbirds are scolding the mist
I think I might know where heaven is
It's just above the trees  REPEAT CHORUS
Watchin' my summertimes turnin' to falls 
Seein' my song growing honest and tall
 Keeps me satisfied 
If I live forever or I die today 
All I would ask is you just let me lay
Here on this mountainside  REPEAT CHORUS
