I Must Go to the Hills

I must go to the hills, girl, 
They wait for me, 
Each rock and tree, 
I must go to the hills, girl. 

Stay in the valley low, boy, 
Your home is here,
Your memories dear,
Stay in the valley low, boy. 

But I must go to the hills, girl,
The place is high, 
Now say goodbye, 
For I must go to the hills, girl. 

No, stay in the valley low, boy, 
Remember when,
We played back then, 
Here in this valley low, boy? 

Yes, but I must go to the hills, girl, 
This valley land, 
I cannot stand, 
Let me go to those distant hills, girl. 

Oh, please stay in the valley low, boy, 
For if you leave, 
My soul will cleave, 
To the graves of this valley low, boy. 

If I go to the faraway hills, girl, 
Why will you cry,
For one such as I,
If I go to the faraway hills, girl?

Because this sad valley low, boy, 
Has naught to bring,
But one small thing,
’Tis you in this valley low, boy. 

To yonder hills I want to go, girl, 
Yet lo, your tear!
I must be dear!
For you cry as I go to the hills, girl.

Stay in the valley low, boy,
Just one last plea, 
If you love me,
Stay in this valley low, boy. 

To the hills I cannot go then, girl, 
To stay with you,
Is what I’ll do,
To the hills I cannot go then, girl. 

You would stay in this valley low, boy?
For one such as I,
Your dreams would all die,
You would stay in this valley low, boy?

To the hills I will never go, girl, 
For I realize now,
My love is for thou, 
Not the hills that I wanted to go, girl. 

Then let us not stay in this valley low, boy, 
Together we will,
Climb high for the hill, 
And we’ll never stay in this valley low, boy.
