Blue Mountain Ridges

Artwork Blue Mountain Ridges

 

His world was the valley and the old mobile home In the heart of the Key Stone State In the mountains around as a kid he would roam Never mind being poor seemed his fate He was just seventeen when a sergeant came by Talking army and money to spend He didn't know why he said, why shouldn't I And before he knew to the war he was sent In that far away country it was hard to adjust To the loom of the danger in the sand and the dust He would do his duty but he had to confess I long for my valley, I'm homesick I guess Blue mountain ridges, whitewater streams Red covered bridges, land of my dreams It's red, white and blue and it sounds like a song Pennsylvania is where I belong On a hot desert day he was sent on patrol In a slow moving convoy they wheeled To an area thought to be under control His humvee would do for a shield The roadside explosion then must have occurred For when he came to it was hell His eyes couldn't see just how he was hurt But oh, it looked pretty bad, he could tell His buddies were pleading with him to hang on But he just knew he was about to be gone He whispered, you guys say a prayer for me That I go to heaven and that heaven will be Blue mountain ridges, whitewater streams Red covered bridges, land of my dreams It's red, white and blue and it sounds like a song Pennsylvania is where I belong The angels then took him, to heaven they flew Where God said come look, I got something for you Blue mountain ridges, whitewater streams Red covered bridges, land of my dreams It's red, white and blue and it sounds like a song Pennsylvania is where I belong
