Fire On The Mountain

Trisha Gagnon

CHORUS
Fire on the mountain
I hear my neighbors cry
Flames rushing toward us
Smoke burns our eyes
Was it lightning or an act of man
It doesn't matter why
'Cause there's fire on the mountain
We've gotta run for our lives

We've lived here thirty years
And watched our children grow
It's so hard now to leave
And let our homestead go
We gather up our treasures
Of new and of old
But these memories we made here
In our hearts we'll hold

CHORUS

Round up the horses
And drive the cattle home
Load 'em into trailers
We can't leave them to roam
The ponderosa pine explode in the air
And this blackened earth will bring forth
New life everywhere

CHORUS
