lyrics

I'm goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

I got my rifle on my back
My powder it is dry
Goin' across the mountain
Chrissie don't you cry

Goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

[instrumental]

Now way before it's good daylight
If nothing happens to me
I'll be way down yonder
In old Tennessee

I expect you'll miss me when I'm gone
But I'll be going through
When this war is over
I'll come back to you

Goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

[instrumental]

Goin' across the mountain
To join the boys in blue
When this war is over
I'll come back to you

Goin' across the mountain
If I have to crawl
To give ol' Jeff's men
Some of my rifle ball

Goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

I'm goin' across the mountain
Oh fare thee well
Goin' across the mountain
You can hear my banjo tell

The Abbott Brothers Santa Cruz, California

Mix together old-time brother duets from the mountains and good ol’ honky-tonk country songs, add in some blazing bluegrass- style solos and tight sibling harmonies, and you get an idea of what an Abbott Brothers show is like. The songs are fresh takes on time-tested gems of old. But beneath that new-band sheen lies a pair of brothers that have been intimately comfortable on stage for years. ... more
