Come Back Home (John Muir)

by Jonathan Sprout & Dave Kinnoin



I dream of mountains
I hear them calling me back home.
I hear them calling,
Calling – come back home!

Far from the reach of the city,
Where mountains give way to the sky,
This is where I long to wander,
Watching the seasons go by.
Nothing could feel more exciting
Than being there, ready to roam.
No place could be more inviting.
It’s calling me “Come back home!”


Refrain:

Let me stand in the heart of a redwood grove
Lightly sprinkled with fresh white snow,
May I just catch a glimpse of a mountaintop
Awash with alpenglow,
Let me live out a dream on Yosemite Stream
Where my wilderness joys abound,
To discover the truth of eternal youth
Upon that sacred ground.

Nature awakens my senses
When I walk among whispering trees
Smelling the sweet-scented cedar
Breathing the crisp glacial breeze.
Hearing a soft creature chorus
Under a star-sparkled dome.
Now who will preserve it all for us
So we can come back home?

Refrain

Bridge: High flowery meadows
Sheer canyon walls
Huge boulder dams
Lacey white waterfalls

Refrain

Outro:
I dream of mountains
I hear them calling me back home.
I hear them calling,
Calling – come back home!
I dream of mountains
I hear them calling me back home.
I hear them calling,
Calling – come back home!
