Lyrics
(Tom Johnston)
Well I'm standin' on top of the mountain
Just about a mile from Jericho
And my throat is hot and dusty
Down to the water I must go

Catherine the Great and brave Ulysses
Playin' checkers out in the sun
Jesse James and young William Bonnie
Have started a religion for everyone

And I'm standin' on top of the mountain
Just about a mile from Jericho
And my throat is hot and dusty
Down to the water I must go

Well the drums they are loud down in rap town
But the Pope has been quiet for days
Well some gunmen robbed a bank in California
And the cops blew them all away

If you don't like the picture
Don't turn it off
The only way to change it is to do it yourself

And I'm standin' on top of the mountain
Just about a mile from Jericho
And my throat is hot and dusty
Down to the water I must go

Peace and love on the wings of a dove
Has flown away
We're payin' the rent
On the blood that's been spent
On a mortgage that's too high to be paid

Well I'm standin' on top of the mountain
Just about a mile from Jericho
And my throat is hot and dusty
down to the water I must go

And I'm standin' on top of the mountain
Just about a mile from Jericho
And my throat is hot and dusty
Down to the water I must go
