GUEST,Michael James Lyr/Chords Req: On a mountain stands a lady (22) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: On a mountain stands a lady 27 Nov 11


Why do I have the feeling that the roots of this song are much more sinister than we all remember them to be? It has been swimming around in my head for 2 days now. I remember it from childhood either as a skipping song or when playing 2 balls against the wall. That was in the late 40's just after the war. Did it originally have a sinister meaning and was it some kind of warning?
