lyrics

It started with a whisper
And rose into a roar
It started with a picture and a wish
For everything and more

So I packed up my wagon
Rode toward the setting sun
Oblivious to beauty all around me
And starry skies above

I’ll pan for gold, I’ll not grow old
I’ll never need again

The streams were running silver
More than we could use
The mountains were forgotten
We missed
We missed the view

Like a fire word was passing
And the greed was running high
Just as fast, like lightning flashing
The mine was dry

All the lakes and streams can rest in peace
It’s time to leave again

So we took up all our wagons
And we took up all our gold
Back to New York with the loot
But we couldn’t take
We couldn’t take the view
Couldn’t take the view
Couldn’t take the view

What’s a city boy to do

The mountains are in my blood
They’re running in my veins
I dream about it every night it’s true
I miss the view
