Lyrics

O Way up North
On Cannon Mountain
Way up North
Where the wind blows Free

There's the oldest Man
Old Man of the Mountain
Way up North
With the birds and the bees

He's way up High
He's made of Stone
He was made by God
and God Alone

All the People Come
To see His Face
He's the Oldest Man
A round this place

He stands the cold
When the cold Wind Blows
The icicles form
Upon His Nose

He loves it There
with his Mate
'cause she's a-cross
The Profile Lake

An Ageless Love
So true and Bold
It's whree You'll Find
This Story's Told

O Way up North
On Cannon Mountain
Way up North
Where the wind blows Free

There's the oldest Man
Old Man of the Mountain
Way up North
With the birds and the bees
