Don Williams - Leaving For The Flatlands Lyrics




Sweetly flows the water from the mountain
Softly falls the rain upon the leaves
Gently blows the breeze among the cedars
Quietly my heart is on its knees.

How could anything in all creation
Be more beautiful than all I see
With it all my heart is not rejoicing
Because the one I love is not with me.

Somewhere in between us was a difference
Not we or all this beauty could secure
And I know now my heart will ache forever
And I wonder if this mountain can endure.

So I'm leavin' for the flatlands
Goin' back where I was conceived
Goin' back where nobody knows the difference
This mountain knows too much about me.

I though it was written up in heaven
That you would be with me and I with you
Sun and moon and stars must feel the difference
They're wishin' there was somethin' they could do.

So I'm leavin' for the flatlands
Goin' back where I was conceived
Goin' back where nobody knows the difference
This mountain knows too much about me.

This mountain knows too much about me...

    Sweetly flows the water from the mountain
    Softly falls the rain upon the leaves
    Gently blows the breeze among the cedars
    Quietly my heart is on its knees

    How could anything in all creation
    Be more beautiful than all I see
    With it all my heart is not rejoicing
    Because the one I love is not with me

    Somewhere in between us was a difference
    Not we or all this beauty could secure
    And I know now my heart will ache forever
    And I wonder if this mountain can endure

    So l'm leaving for the flatlands
    Going back where I was conceived
    Going back where nobody knows the difference
    This mountain knows too much about me
    **********************
    I though it was written up in heaven
    If you would be with me and I with you
    Sun, moon and stars must feel the difference
    They're wishing there was something they could do

    So l'm leaving for the flatlands
    Going back where I was conceived
    Going back where nobody knows the difference
    This mountain knows too much about me
    This mountain knows too much about me.....
