Goin' to the Mountain


Em D Em Gone is the ridin' of the rails. Em G D Gone are the friends to go bail. C D Gone, long gone is the time G D Em When the women would be mine, G D Em When the women, they would be mine. A Em I'm goin' to the Mountain, A Em Gonna lay up there a while. G D Send my saddle to the mountain, C B7 Em Let me leave this world in style.

It's a steep road to the mountain.
It's a hard way to go.
And with every step I'm countin'
I can hear the death wind blow,
Hear the death wind blow.

I'm goin' to the Mountain,
Gonna lay up there a while.
Send my saddle to the mountain,
Let me leave this world in style.

A man should die all alone.
No one should hear his death moan.
When his days of glory are done
He should die in the light of the sun,
Die in the warmth of the sun.

I'm goin' to the Mountain,
Gonna lay up there a while.
Send my saddle to the mountain,
Let me leave this world in style.

I'm goin' to the Mountain,
Gonna lay up there a while.
Send my silver saddle to the mountain,
Let me leave this world in style,

C              D        E
Leave this old world in style,

(Words and music by Phil Ochs, 1963)

Notes: Phil may have learned the chord progression in the last line from Bob Gibson.
