VP_001211 Verse 1In my Rocky Mountain home I so happily did roam, 'Mid the mining camps and scenes so wild and free, Not a glimpse of worldly care Ever comes to haunt me there, And the cottage small a palace seem'd to be. And how often I recall Shady pines so dark and tall, Where at twilight with my sweetheart I would roam, And together we would sing Till our voices used to ring In the echoes of my Rocky Mountain home. Chorus 1There the sun comes softly peeping At the mountains that are sleeping, Till its golden light awakes each mighty dome; And it fills my heart with cheer When in dreams I seem to hear The sweet echoes of my Rocky Mountain home. Verse 2By a gently flowing stream Where I used to sit and dream, There my mother dear is laid away to rest, And her voice, so sweet and clear, Seems to fall upon my ear When I'm thinking of the days I loved so well. But my sweetheart waits for me, And I long again to see Those dear snowclad peaks as white as oceans foam, I shall wed my love and dwell 'Mong the nooks we loved so well 'Midst the echoes of my Rocky Mountain home.
