Gale Mead: Music

Hope Mountain

(Gale Mead)
August, 2008
Gale Mead & Joe Pfifer
It’s the life that I have, the life that I live

And it wouldn’t be so bad if I just had more to give

I’m one foot in the ocean, the other in the clouds

I’m not sure where I’m going and I’m even less sure how

But I can’t do worse than I’ve already done,

When the day is done, Up on Hope Mountain


Up on Hope Mountain in my little slice of sky

Orion hunts again tonight and the coyotes give their cry

In solitude I find the strength, to live before I die

Up on Hope Mountain


How blessed am I to live so close to the sky

Where the wind through the oak trees sings as softly as a sigh

I’m one foot in the ocean, the other in the stars

I’m not sure where I’m going but I’m sure it’s awfully far

And I watch the tangerine moon rise

Watch the world go by, up on Hope Mountain


Up on Hope Mountain in my little slice of sky

Orion hunts again tonight and the coyotes give their cry

In solitude I find the strength, to live before I die

Up on Hope Mountain
