Out on the street it was raining today
Homeless man stood in the cold
Gave him five dollars and went on my way
Big city blues in my soul
Maybe like me that man chose to live here
Where there are days your heart dies
Maybe he dreamed of a place far away
Under the wide open skies.

Went on my way feeling strange all that day
Wondering what had gone wrong
Deep in my heart I could hear that voice call
Haunting me all that day long

Mountain girl in the city
You've been gone far too long
Find your way back to the mountains
Where you know you belong
Where your dreams can't go wrong.

I've seen the world and it's sights in my day
Cities that blaze like the sun
I've had my share of their riches and fame
Done things I never should have done
Been broken hearted and broken some hearts
Tried running hard from my pain
And all along that voice calls in my soul
Come back to the mountains again.

Mountain girl in the city
You've been gone far too long
Find your way back to the mountains
Where you know you belong
Where your dreams can't go wrong.

Bought a ticket back again
Heading home once more
Feel that aching pain recede
Like the waves on the shore

I feel the heart of the mountains again
Beating inside my breast
Bringing me back to the place I belong
Bringing me home to the west
No pain or sorrow can keep me away
I'll even walk that last, long mile
Here in the mountains
Where every sunrise starts
I'll heal my heart for awhile

Mountain girl in the city
You've been gone far too long
Find your way back to the mountains
Where you know you belong
Where your dreams can't go wrong.

Mountain girl,
mountain girl,
mountain girl,
mountain girl in the city.
