Goin` across the mountain
Oh, fare you well,
Goin` across the mountain,
You can hear my banjo tell.

Got my rations on my back
My powder it is dry
I`m a-goin` across the mountain
Chrissie, don`t you cry.

Goin` across the mountain
To join the boys in Blue
When this war is over
I`ll come back to you.

Goin` across the mountain
If I have to crawl
To give old Jeff`s men
A little of my rifle ball.
Way before it`s good daylight
If nothing happens to me
I`ll be way down yonder
In old Tennessee.

I expect you`ll miss me when I`m gone
But I`m goin` through
When this war is over
I`ll come back to you.

Goin` across the mountain
Oh, fare you well
Goin` across the mountain
Oh, fare you well.
