Will You Come Over the Mountain?

One night when the moon illumined the sky
I first took a notion to marry
Then I put on my cap and away I did hie
You'd swear I was in a great hurry

Till I came to the spot where often I'd been
My heart gave a leap when my darling I'd seen
I opened the door and I bid her goodnight
Saying "Will you come over the mountain?"

"What kind of a fit has come over you now?
But I'm glad to see you so merry
It is now twelve o'clock, you should be in bed
Come in or you'll waken me mammy

"If you think I am jesting, my jesting is true
I've courted twelve months, and I think that should do
But before I go home, I'll be married to you
If you'll come with me over the mountain.

"If I was to make an elopement with you
It's sure to be wrought with great danger
The neighbors would censor and tattle us all
My friends they would gaze on and wonder

"Oh let them censor and tattle away
Consult with yourself, for it's very near day
And I don't give a rot what the lot of them say
If you'll come with me over the mountain.

"But I must away now, it's home I must go
I think it is fitting and better
So farewell my darling, farewell to you now
And that'll put an end to the matter

"Oh wait just a minute, till I put on me shoes
My heart gave a jump when I heard the glad news
She opened the door, saying "Maybe I'll choose
To come with you over the mountain.

By this time the moon had sunk in the west
'Twas the start of a bright summer morning
Off we did go, the pair of us went
For the wedding our two hearts were pining

The sagairt he came, without more delay
He married us both on the very same day
And it's often we talk when we've nothing to say
Of the trip we took over the mountain.
