Henry Jamison Black Mountain Lyrics

Black mountain, cool river

Runs

And I could be anyone

I counted the dark pine trees

123456789

Ten

And I could be any one of them

Oh tonight I see it through

With no thought of self-ridicule

Was it overlong, so overdue?

No thought of me in my thought of you

Black mountain, cool river runs

Oh tonight I see it through

With no thought of self-ridicule

Was it overlong, so overdue?

No thought of me in my thought of you

Black mountain, cool river runs

To the sea, and I could be no one but me

It’s true, you could be no one but you
