​Mountains To The Sea

This song is by Mary Black and appears on the album Stories From The Steeples (2011).

Working coast to coast
Sleeping on a train
Caught between
The settled life
And on the road again
People often ask me
Where it is I'm from
Find it hard to tell them
So I say it in a song

Eagle in the mountains
Floating on a breeze
Shark out in the ocean
He's happy in the deep
Me I've got my own place
It's good enough for me
You could find me anywhere
Between the mountains
And the sea

Been a lot of places
Done a lot of things
Some of them were so good
Yeah I'd do those things again
The town that I was born in
It knows me all too well
I hope they'll
Take me back there
When the keeper rings the bell

Eagle in the mountains
Floating on a breeze
Shark out in the ocean
He's happy in the deep
Me I've got my own place
It's good enough for me
You could find me anywhere
Between the mountains
And the sea

Sometimes I stop and wonder
How it came to this
This life of lonely travelling
So far from civil bliss
There's been people
On the journey
Some I love so deep
Others took advantage
Oh and some had no idea

Oh but that eagle
In the mountains
Floating on a breeze
Shark out in the ocean
He's happy in the deep
Me I've got my own place
It's good enough for me
You could find me anywhere
Between the mountains
And the sea

Eagle in the mountains
Rainbow in the sky
Shark out in the ocean
He's following the tide
Spirit of this country
I hear it speak to me
When the wind is calling
Between the mountains
And the sea
When the wind is blowing
Between the mountains
And the sea
