Gillis Mountain

This song is by The Rankin Family and appears on the album Fare Thee Well Love (1990) and on the album North Country (1993).

I took a trip up Gillis Mountain
On a sunny summer day
There were ruts in the road,
And the 4 wheel drive
Spun its wheels in the rocks and the clay
Yes it spun its wheels in the rocks and the clay

On our way up Gillis Mountain
On that sunny summer day
There were spruce trees growing on the fields
Where'r forefathers once made hay,
Where our forefathers once made hay,
And Oh Ooh Ooh, Gillis Mountain
Oh Ooh Ooh, Where'r forefathers once made hay

The Gillis's lived on the mountain
For about a hundred years
Where we picked berries, they cleared land
Spent their blood and sweat and tears
They spent their blood and sweat and tears
And Oh Ooh Ooh, Gillis Mountain
Oh Ooh Ooh, Spent their blood and sweat and tears

When we arrived on Gillis Mountain
You could see for miles in the light
The whitecaps on the sea of blue
Sparkled like diamonds in the night
They sparkled like diamonds in the night
And Oh Ooh Ooh, Gillis Mountain
Oh Ooh Ooh, Sparkled like diamonds in the night

And Oh Ooh Ooh, Gillis Mountain
Oh Ooh Ooh, sparkled like diamonds in the night
