'Off to the mountain again...'

lyrics

Green turns to black/Now it’s turning back/Rivers running grey/Now they‘re clear as day/I wanna do what my father did/Live the way he lived/Heroin dealers out on the parade/The jobs have gone but the people stayed/I never learnt an honest trade/The jobs have gone but the people stayed/And I love it/I do/I‘m off to the mountain again/Where it begins and it ends/And I talk to the shepherd, my friend/He’s been here 200 years and he says/'The moneymen have been and gone/You‘re left with ill health and old song/The harsh reality/You are the new peasantry'/Chapels have long gone/Still we know the song/There‘s a brass band in the hall/A maudlin trumpet call/Everything’s been sold/Everyone looks old/I am freakin‘ old/Oh Mynydd Mawr/And I‘m up on the mountain again/Where it begins and it ends/And I talk to the shepherd, my friend/He’s been here 200 years and he says/‘Nature will have its way/Let the moneymen stay away/Go rock the rocking stone/This valley is your home‘
