Lyrics

I’ll be waiting on the western side  / Brother if you wan’a catch a ride 
To the weary worlds sighted end / And the land of Black Mountain 

VERSE 1 - I am just a son of man, trapped here in a shackled land 
Broken back and busted hands, all at the foot of Black Mountain 
I am just a son of man, seems I got nothing but I got plans 
Doing all the work I can, to break free from the teeth of Black Mountain 
Oh now brother I’ve made up my mind 
Soon we will leave this yoke of ours behind 
And that’s fine 

CHORUS - Gotta get away from here, from Black Mountain 

VERSE 2 - Son of man, son of man, do all the work you can 
To head west from this dark land and the shadow of Black Mountain 
Oh now brother I’ve made up my mind 
Soon we’ll follow the sun in the western sky 
And that’s fine 
(CHORUS) 

VERSE 3 - I’ll be waiting on the western side / Brother if you wan’a catch a ride 
To the weary worlds sighted end  / And from the land of black mountain 
All the boys ain’t sure what they’ve become / Since they tried to hide where they come from 
And there ain’t no shame in the things I’ve done / To take me and mine from this Black Mountain 
Gotta run to western sun 
Gotta run ’til the work is done 
Gotta run like hell away from 
The Black Mountain 
(Which side are you on boys, which side are you on 
Which side are you on boys, which side are you on)
