"Magnolia Mountain"

I want to go to Magnolia Mountain
And lay my weary head down
Down on the rocks
On the mountain my savior made
Steady my soul and ease my worry
Hold me when I rattle like a hummingbird hummin’
Tie me to the rocks on the mountain my savior made

I want to be the bluebird singing
Singing to the roses in her yard
The roses in her yard her father grew for her
It’s been raining that Tennessee honey
So long I got too heavy to fly
Ain’t no bluebird ever gets too heavy to sing

We burned the cotton fields down in the valley
And ended up with nothing but scars
The scars became the lessons that we gave to our children after the war
But there ain’t nothing but the truth up on the Magnolia Mountain
Where nobody ever dies
Steady your soul and ease your worry
They got a room for you
– Words and Music by Ryan Adams
