Capo 2nd fret Em+9 Em* Em+9 Em* G C/G Fog's along the coastline, hung like tinsel from the trees. Em Bm C I don't know if it will stay or go, it depends upon the breeze. G D/F# Em There's sunshine on your mountain, you can see the world from there. C Bm C D Em+9 Em* Em+9 Em* You've got all the sky you wanted, you get high on mountain air.

You came down to Camden, and you tried to make it go,
But you dreamed of Uncompahgre and your Colorado snow,
Till I came home one evening, on a cold December day,
And I found your note saying maybe it was easier this way.


C D G C Now I'm sitting on the coast of Maine today, Em Bm C D Sitting here, just throwing little rocks into the bay, C D G G/F# Em While the big waves come in slowly, rolling strong and wild and free. G G/F# Em C D Em+9 Em* Em+9 Em* Oh, it's a long way from your mountain down to me.

Freighters on the ocean, sailing off to Liverpool,
While the seagulls swoop around me, and they're saying I'm a fool.
For sure, I've got my coastline, got my endless ocean, too;
And I've got my whispering pine trees, I've got everything but you.

And I'm sitting on the coast of Maine today,
Sitting here, just throwing little rocks into the bay,
While the big waves come in slowly, rolling strong and wild and free.
Oh, it's a long way from your mountain down to me.

And the fog's along the coastline, hung like tinsel from the trees.
I don't know if it will stay or go, it depends upon the breeze.
Ah, there's sunshine on your mountain, you can see the world from there.
You've got all the sky you wanted, you get high on mountain air.

While I'm sitting on the coast of Maine today,
Sitting here, just throwing little rocks into the bay,
While the big waves come in slowly, rolling strong and wild and free.
Oh, it's a long way from your mountain down to me,
Oh, it's a long way from your mountain down to me.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton & Susan Graham White, 1995)
