Tony Rice - Brown Mountain Light Lyrics

Tony Rice Lyrics

Brown Mountain Light Lyrics
In the days of the old covered wagons,
where they camped on the flats for the night;
With the moon shinning dim on the old canyon rim,
they watched for that Brown Mountain light

High, high on the mountain, and deep in the canyon below
It shines like the crown of an angel, and fades as the mists comes and goes.
Way over yonder, night after night until dawn,
A lonely old slave comes back from the grave,
Searching, searching, searching, for his master who's long gone on.

Many years ago a southern planter
Came hunting in this wild world alone
It was then so they say that the planter lost his way
And never returned to his home

His trusting old slave brought a lantern
And searched day and night but in vain
Now the old slave is gone but his spirit lingers on,
And the lantern still casts its light
