Following a bust for hauling marijuana interstate as part of poorly thought-out retirement plan, Singer-Songwriter Linda Faye Carson found herself an inmate at Eddie Warrior Correctional Center where she wrote one of her best songs, "Walking on Mountaintops." She appreciates having been corrected and for having access to a guitar during her "visit". She says the song illustrates our ability to know light and beauty in the darkest of circumstances.

*All debts to society have been paid and these days, no laws are broken but those of averages.

Lyrics

Walking on Mountaintops by Linda Faye Carson



I'm walkin' on Mountaintops. Singing on high.
I feel I can climb right up and touch the sky.
Dew-drops like diamonds laying at my feet.
Bird-song a symphony with melody so sweet!
Mighty are the mountains.
Wonderous are the seas.
The earth and all its beauty is glorious to me.
Glorious to me.

Wild-flower's rare perfume, delights unfold.
Dawn's colors peach and rose, crimson and gold.
I'm walking on mountaintops, your higher ground.
I shall dance in praise of you,
A rainbow for my gown.
Mighty are the mountains.
Wonderous are the seas.
The earth and all its beauty is glorious to me.
Glorious to me 2x
Mighty are the mountains.
Wonderous are the seas.
The earth and all its beauty is glorious to me.
Glorious to me 2x
