lyrics

The Lady of the Mountains, so many times she has seen
that buzzing burst of summer, so many shades of green.
She can't help but smile when that green goes to gold
Her heart of hearts waits for the snow

The lady of the mountains, she's ready to forget
a year of lost love; a whole year overslept
Promises not kept she'll press into coal
and burn for warmth in that first fallen snow

When summer decides that she's satisfied
and sends her blessing up to the sky
they open the gates and quiet the sounds
and heaven comes down to lie on the ground

The Lady of the Mountains, she wears the wilderness
wrapped around her shoulders and tucked around her neck
Places we can't go, days beyond roads
Life is out there living, even under the snow.

When summer decides that she's satisfied
and sends her blessing up to the sky
they open the gates and quiet the sounds
and heaven comes down to lie on the ground

about

Jes Raymond & The Blackberry Bushes Seattle, Washington

The Appalachian Mountains are the meeting place of the fiddle and the banjo, and musical culture permeates the entire length of the Mississippi River. The Blackberry Bushes are rooted in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound, but their work is infused with the essence of the homes they wandered West from.
They have a playful and resonant sound with both twang and sophistication.
