CAPO: 5th Fret



INTRO: C  G  F  C (4x)  

CHORUS:

I went up to the mountain
      F               C       F
And I came back a wise woman
            C      F              G       C
Went to the river, came back wiser still
                       F                 C              F
Only to see, you're as dear to me as the air I breathe
          C               F       G      C
Won't you meet me at that mansion on the hill

 
                          G         F
Stuffed your mattress and wove your sheets
                               C
Patched your blanket, piece by piece
       F                     C             F          G
If the lord had granted me a choice, I'd a held up my hand
   C                        G        F
We ground the corn, moulded lard and lye
                     C                 F
Had ten children and watched four die
             C                          G        C
I'll stand beside you when you meet the promised land

 
CHORUS:

Because I went up to the mountain
      F               C       F
And I came back a wise woman
            C      F              G       C
Went to the river, came back wiser still
                       F                 C              F
Only to see, you're as dear to me as the air I breathe
          C               F       G      C
Won't you meet me at that mansion on the hill


INSTRUMENTAL: F  C  F  C  F  G  C    F  C  F  C  F  G  C

 
                          G        F
Danced to the fiddle on a Saturday night
                         C              F
And chopped the cotton before daylight
                 C         F            G
The sun don't go down on a poor man's woes
       C                  G        F
But my love, if you don't meet the dawn
                    C         F
I promise you, I'll carry on
                   C                      G        C
Singing, 'Precious Memories', as I plant along the rows

 
CHORUS:

Because I went up to the mountain
      F               C       F
And I came back a wise woman
            C      F              G       C
Went to the river, came back wiser still
                       F                 C              F
Only to see, you're as dear to me as the air I breathe
          C               F       G      C
Won't you meet me at that mansion on the hill
                         F               C
Won't you meet me at the mansion on the hill
                         F               C
Won't you meet me at the mansion on the hill
