About This Song


wrote this song in memoriam of my parents who lived a life like this.
It's a homemade production besides of the vocals and the fiddle which have been overdubbed in Nashville. The singer is Ron Wallace. Me and the computer played all other instruments and I did the mix by myself. The lyric took the second place in the lyric contest of 'American Songwriter'('16/Nov./Dec).

I loved the song as a whole, as it all flowed nicely. I would fix the lines that were supposed to rhyme but didn’t.

Mount Everest

He met his Appalachian girl in a summer camp
she became his wife and his best friend
They found a place on earth to settle down
big skies and green grass all around
They got a couple of kids and a lazy dog hanging out on the porch
and a four-wheel-drive ten year old Dodge

They’r working hard to keep the wheels on turning
rarely skipping church on Sunday morning
and he was always feeling alright
with some friends and a cold beer at the barbecue on Saturday night

Some people’s dreams ain’t big enough to fail
they never play a leading part in an heroic tale
but to live a life full of love and happiness
you don’t need to climb Mount Everest

Summer came and summer left
and autumn brought another gift
it wasn’t long after the youngest had left home
when the first grandchild came along

Now they spent some more time by the sea
she lent her hand to a charity
and was always feeling fine
when everybody’s coming home at christmas time

Some people’s dreams ain’t big enough to fail
they never play a leading part in an heroic tale
but to live a life full of love and happiness
you don’t need to climb Mount Everest

When she got sick and needed care
he spoon-fed her and combed her hair
and at the moment she passed away he whispered sweet nothings in her ear
while his eyes were filling up with tears

Sitting in his rocking chair
missing his Appalachian girl
one thing he’s really sure about
he will meet her again in a different world

Some people’s dreams ain’t big enough to fail
they never play a leading part in an heroic tale
but to live a life full of love and happiness
you don’t need to climb Mount Everest

Some people’s dreams ain’t big enough to fail
they never play a leading part in an heroic tale
but to live a life full of love and happiness
you don’t need to climb Mount Everest

you don’t have to climb Mount Everest
