Standing on the Mountain

Darling will you marry me I asked a maiden fair,
|G / / / |G / G7
I turned my back u-pon her when I looked she wasn’t there.
/ |C / / / |G / /
She left me stan-ding (standing) on the mountain,
/ |C / D / |G / / / |
She left me stan-ding way up there.
Where the honeybees are buzzing round the flowers there,
That is where she vanished somewhere in that mountain air.
I just saw the whippoorwill a-talking to a bear,
They were both a-laughing ’bout her giving me the air.
I would give most anything if once more she’d appear,
And tell me that she cared a little for this mountaineer.
