Track Name: Whiskey Mountain
I had a dream that you took yourself out of this world
Full steam ahead, full steam ahead
Friends and family calling you to turn around, but you kept on
Full steam ahead, full steam ahead

I've been high upon whiskey mountain
Climb up to the top, there's a whiskey fountain
But you can't stay long

I had a dream the lights were dimmed and you took the stage
Full steam ahead, full steam ahead
Everyone around putting the book down, but you turned the page
Full steam ahead, full steam ahead

I've been high upon whiskey mountain
Climb up to the top, there's a whiskey fountain
But you can't stay long, you can't stay long

In my dream I heard your song, I awoke, something was wrong

I've been high upon whiskey mountain
Climb to the very top, there's a whiskey fountain
But you can't stay long, you can't stay long
