Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: On a mountain stands a lady
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: On a mountain / Dancing Bears
I heard the song first in Belfast and my sister used to skip to the tune and do the Lady Lady part but I didn't know the words - so thank you.

I recently heard the song again by Ian Campbell Band - Scottish - but it didn't have the Lady Lady bit.

I began to wonder if there was more to the song as it doesn't seem to finish. Does she get her gold, her silver or a fine young man ? Why is she on the mountain and how long has she been standing there ?

Thanks - I wonder what the tune for the Waltzing Bear song is ?
