Going Across The Mountain

By Trad

    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.
    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.

Got my rations on my back
My powder it is dry
Goin' 'cross the mountain
Chrissy, don't you cry.

    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.
    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.

Goin' 'cross the mountain
To join the boys in blue
When this war is over,
I'll come back to you.

    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.
    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.

Goin' 'cross the mountain
If I have to crawl
To give Jeff's men a little taste
Of my rifle ball

    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.
    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.

Way before it's good daylight,
If nothin' happens to me,
I'll be way out yonder
In old Tennessee

    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.
    Goin' 'cross the mountain
    Oh, fare thee well.

'Spect you'll miss me when I'm gone,
But I'm goin' through
When this fightin's over,
I'll come back to you
When this fightin's over,
I'll come back to you
