These Are My Mountains

Song Author James Copeland Performer: Slim Whitman Submitted by: Anonymous

[F]For these are my [C]mountains [G7]and I´m going [C]home

For fame and for [G7]for-   [C]tune I´ve [F]wandered the [C]earth
But [F]now I´ve re[C]turned to the land of my [G7]birth
I´ve brought back my [C]treasure [C7]but only to [F]find
They´re less than the [C]plea[F]sure [G7]I first left [C]behind

For these are my [G7]mount-[C]ains [F]this is my [C]glen
The [F]days of my [C]childhood I´ll see them [G7]again
No land ever [C]claimed me [C7]though far did I [F]roam
For these are my [C]moun[F]tains [G7]and I´m going [C]home

The stream by the [G7]road [C]sings at [F]my going [C]by  
The [F]lark overhead [C]wing a welcoming [G7]cry   
The lake where the [C]trout lies [C7]once more I will [F]see  
For it´s there that my [C]heart [F]lies [G7]it´s there I must [C]be  

[F]For these are my [C]moun[F]tains [G7]and I´m going [C]home

Kind faces will [G7]meet [C]me and [F]welcome me [C]in  
And oh [F]how they´ll [C]greet me back home [G7]again
This night around the [C]fireside old [C7]songs will be [F]sung
At last I´ll be [C]hear[F]ing [G7]my own mother´s [C]tongue

For these are my [G7]mount-[C]ains [F]this is my [C]glen
The [F]days of my [C]childhood I´ll see them [G7]again
No land ever [C]claimed me [C7]though far did I [F]roam
For these are my [C]moun[F]tains [G7]and I´m going [C]home

[F]For these are my [C]moun[F]tains [G7]and I´m going [C]home


For these are my mountains and I´m going home

For fame and for for-tune I´ve wandered the earth
But now I´ve returned to the land of my birth
I´ve brought back my treasure but only to find
They´re less than the pleasure I first left behind

For these are my mount-ains this is my glen
The days of my childhood I´ll see them again
No land ever claimed me though far did I roam
For these are my mountains and I´m going home

The stream by the road sings at my going by
The lark overhead wing a welcoming cry
The lake where the trout lies once more I will see
For it´s there that my heart lies it´s there I must be

For these are my mountains and I´m going home

Kind faces will meet me and welcome me in
And oh how they´ll greet me back home again
This night around the fireside old songs will be sung
At last I´ll be hearing my own mother´s tongue

For these are my mount-ains this is my glen
The days of my childhood I´ll see them again
No land ever claimed me though far did I roam
For these are my mountains and I´m going home

For these are my mountains and I´m going home
