Red Mountain

Written By: David Fedan

"Red Mountain"

Music and Lyrics ©2011 David Holden Fedan

I awoke one morning
The girl said to me
"Honey dear, I think we've
Won the lottery"

She said "I know what we'll do then
With the extra jack
That burns a hole in my pocket
Hurry let's make tracks

"We'll go to the Red Mountain
With its summit glistening
Then we can be a part
Of the new community"

And the Red Mountain will grow
And the Red Mountain will grow

We settled right down
With station all intact
It was hard to believe that
The dream had become a fact

Soon we were free from
Responsibility
Bought a labrador, a big screen
And an SUV

When you sign ink to paper
In blue or black
A little voice inside
Says you never can go back

And the Red Mountain will grow
And the Red Mountain will grow

I dreamt we were together
Keeping nary a care
Dancing 'round the Mountain
With our hands in the air
For a moment I thought I could see
Everyone there...

Though we made friends aplenty
The two of us agreed
There was just something missing
From this life of luxury

Late one evening
The girl said to me
"I'm leaving you, Teddy
For a man of high degree"

There are times when I wonder
If we lived too recklessly
But there's no use fretting
Over what might have been

And the Red Mountain will grow
And the Red Mountain will grow
And the Red Mountain will grow
And the Red Mountain will grow
