Arthur / Up to the Mountain

by Allison Crowe

Arthur 03:34 video
Arthur Words & Music by Allison Crowe And the weight of this war We are fighting Is a door that is opening And sighing You say come back inside It is warm here You have seen it out there And you ran away If you lift without strength Can you move it Or the sword in this stone Would you lose it Are you Arthur Or only pretending And this hope you have burned Are you sending away Away, away… Would you hold me If I disappeared now And if I didn’t know Who I was Would you stay with me While I was losing Or lay down your sword And run away Would you still love me If I forgot you If my heart held to Only a thread In the flicker of eyes I would see you Would you carry me back from my dread away Away, 'way, away away, away
Up to the Mountain (MLK Song) Words and music by Patty Griffin As performed by Allison Crowe I went up to the mountain because you asked me to Up over the clouds to where the sky was blue I could see all around me everywhere I could see all around me everywhere Sometimes I feel like I'm never nothing but tired But I'll keep on walking walking 'til the day I expire Sometimes I lay down no more can I do Then I go on again because you asked me to Some days I look down afraid I will fall And though the sun shines I see nothing at all Then I hear your sweet voice come and then go, and then go Telling me softly that you love me so The peaceful valley way up over the mountain The peaceful valley few come to know An' I may never get there ever in this lifetime Sooner or later it's there I will go Sooner or later there I will go
