about

Bob Marley is one of favourite writers and singers, but as a primarily folky kind of player, I don’t get a lot of opportunities to play reggae style. I was really pleased to get a reggae song written and onto this recording.
I’m not a purist though – so my production take on this was inspired more by Dire Straits than by Bob Marley. Michael’s drum part was so cool that I decided to make that the intro to the song.
I’m also a big believer in ‘you reap what you sow’, karma, whatever you want to call it. That’s what this song is really about.

lyrics

The Top of the Mountain

Far fetcher, ship wrecker,
Scavenger of lost souls
Muscles tired from carrying a torch
That burnt out long ago

Alchemist, Bruce Lee fist,
Living in a gorilla mist
Fly by wire, fly by night,
Therapy by throttle twist

All roads end where the rivers all begin
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain
Rain or shine you can’t choose the time
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain

Politics, straws and bricks,
Burning down your house of sticks
Malatov, or brotherly love,
You can’t win the game when you don’t know it’s fixed

All roads end where the rivers all begin
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain
Rain or shine you can’t choose the time
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain

Dragonfly, hurricane,
I was carried by a million butterflies
To the edge of a map where a one hand clap
Say the truth don’t come with a side of fries

All roads end where the rivers all begin
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain
Rain or shine you can’t choose the time
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain

All roads end where the rivers all begin
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain
Rain or shine you can’t choose the time
You got to walk or crawl to the top of the mountain
