Restless Eyes

Sugar Mountain

Janis Ian

Do you go down on the side of Sugar Mountain
when leaves are brown
and the sunlight splits the sky?
I have found that the sea breeze tears at the ocean,
and I hope somebody will love me 'fore I die

Oh willow, weep no more my lady,
though the days are long and lazy,
and the sun sits heavy on the sky
Weep no more, I'm homeward bound
I'm gonna tear this mountain down
You're gonna be somebody bye and bye

Sugar mountain trees are made of candy,
and the sun drips honey in your eyes
Every fountain's water tastes like brandy,
and I know somebody will love me 'fore i die

Oh willow, weep no more my lady,
though the days are long and lazy
and the sun sits heavy on the sky
Weep no more, I'm homeward bound
I'm gonna tear this mountain down
You're gonna be somebody bye and bye

Sugar mountain lovers taste like honey
and their lips like elderberry wine
Every other stranger pales and withers
and I hope somebody will love me 'fore I die

Oh willow, weep no more my lady,
though the days are long and lazy,
and the sun sits heavy on the sky
Weep no more, I'm homeward bound
I'm gonna tear this mountain down
You're gonna be somebody bye and bye
Weep no more, I'm homeward bound
I'm gonna tear this mountain down
You're gonna be somebody bye and bye
