​Mansion On The Hill

This song is by Michael Martin Murphey and appears on the album Swans Against The Sun (1976).

Tonight down here in the valley
I am lonesome and oh how I feel,
As I sit here alone in my cabin
I can see your mansion on the hill ...

Do you recall when we parted?
The story to me you revealed -
You said you could love without love, dear,
In your loveless mansion on the hill

So I have waited all through the years, love
To give you a heart, true and real,
'Cause I know you're living in sorrow
In your loveless mansion on the hill

The light shines bright from your window,
The trees stand so silent and still.
Yes, I know you're alone with your pride, dear
In your loveless mansion on the hill

Tonight down here in the valley
I am lonesome and oh how I feel,
As I sit here alone in my cabin
I can see your mansion on the hill ...
