Cumberland Mountain Deer Chase

Lyrics

(American folk song)

Refrain
Away and away, we’re bound for the mountain,
bound for the mountain, bound for the mountain,
Over the mountain, the hills and the fountains,
Away to the chase, away, away.

1. We heed not the tempest, the toil nor the danger,
As over the mountains away goes Ranger,
All night long till the break of dawn,
Merrily the chase goes on. Refrain

2. Now we’re set just right for the race,
The old hound dogs are ready for the chase,
The deer is a-boundin’, the hounds are a-soundin’
Right on the trail that leads to the mountain. Refrain

3. Listen to the hound bells, sweetly ringing,
Over the mountains the wild deer’s springing,
All night long till the break of dawn,
Merrily the chase goes on. Refrain
