A dying soldier loves the mountains and streams of his youth and is contented with his cause, his legacy and the promise of being with loved ones forever.

Lyrics

Yonder mountain is where I’m headed
Yonder stream will take me there
What I’ll find on yonder mountain
Makes my burden light to bear

Yonder place on yonder mountain
Lies the land where I must go
Only blue skies surround that mountain
And a cool breeze gently blows

(instrumental break}

Take this grey coat, lay it o’er me
Take this sword from my hand
Give it to my wife and children
Tell them I took a righteous stand

On yonder mountain, I’ll be waitin'
Where there’s no sorrow and no more war
There I’ll greet you under blue skies
And we’ll be parted never more
