Among The Mountains

I found myself among the mountains
I went wandering on a lark
I walked along the trail that climbed up
‘Long the way I did watch and hark

I found myself among the mountains
I had hundreds for company
Some were pilgrims, chanting loudly
Others who just came to see

I found myself among the mountains
Looking for a kindred soul
‘Nother man whose spirit called him
‘Nother rambler without a goal

I found myself among the mountains
It turned out I searched in vain
There were many who came to conquer
What they saw as a tough terrain

I found myself among the mountains
I did wonder why I went
I couldn’t break the spell that bound me
I concluded that I was sent

I found myself among the mountains
I saw what they all could see
I do not know what they all found 
In the mountains I found me
