How Mountain Girls Can Love

Words & Music:

Ruby Rakes



C              G

Get down boys, go back home,

D                    G

Back to the girl you love.

C                G

Treat her right, never wrong,

D                      G

How mountain girls can love.



Riding in the night in the high cold wind.

       D                          G

On the trail of that old lonesome pine.


Thinking of you and feeling so blue.

          D              G

Wondering why I left you behind.




Do you remember the night when we strolled down the lane?

Our hearts were gay and happy, then.

And you whispered to me as I held you close,

"I hope this night will never end."
