[Verse]
On the first of May
It is moving day
Spring is here, so blow your job
Throw your job away
Now’s the time to trust
To your wanderlust
In the city’s dust you wait
Must you wait?
Just you wait!

[Chorus]
In our mountain greenery
Where God paints the scenery
Just two crazy people together
While you love your lover, let
Blue skies be your coverlet
When it rains, we’ll laugh at the weather
And if you’re good
I’ll search for wood
So you can cook
While I stand look
…ing
Beans could get no keener re-
ception in a beanery
Bless our mountain greenery home!

[Chorus 2]
In our mountain greenery
Where God paints the scenery
Just two crazy people together
How we love sequestering
Where no pests are pestering
No dear mama holds us in tether
Mosquitos here
Won’t bite you, dear
I’ll let them sting
Me on the fing-
Er
We could find no cleaner re-
Treat from life’s machinery
Than our mountain greenery home
