From the recording Mountains of Montana

<p>I consider this to be the center piece for the "Great Big Sky" album, tying all the crazy side stories together into one simplistic yell. &nbsp;The lyrics act almost as a "last will and testament" for the main character. &nbsp;Me in some ways I suppose, but don't we all have a similar yearning for simplicity and nature? &nbsp;Most of us anyway. ;)&nbsp;</p>
<p>You can probably tell I was listening to a lot of Bluegrass when I wrote this one. &nbsp;I'm pretty sure I "borrowed" the opening lick from Tony Rice. &nbsp;Shhhhh...</p>

<p><strong>Mountains of Montana</strong></p>
<p>(C) 2012, Hike the Stone Music</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>I&rsquo;m going back to the mountains of Montana</p>
<p>Back where my heart has never left</p>
<p>Back to the mountains of Montana</p>
<p>If I don&rsquo;t go my soul will never rest</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>I don&rsquo;t want to live in no flatlands</p>
<p>I&rsquo;d done my share of that when I was a child</p>
<p>I&rsquo;ve done my time in the South in the city, man ole man</p>
<p>I&rsquo;d rather take my chances on the wild</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Don&rsquo;t bury me my friends in no graveyard</p>
<p>Don&rsquo;t you lay me down in some forgotten tomb</p>
<p>Spread half my ashes down in Yellowstone</p>
<p>And toss the rest up high in the Beartooth Mountains</p>
