Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: On a mountain stands a lady
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: On a mountain
The "On yonder mountain" verse probably belonged originally to the "Madam Madam I've Come a-Courting/ Oh No John/ No Sir No/ Ripest Apples/ Spanish Lady" group of songs; you might like to have a look at these examples on the DT:

Ripest Apples
Oh No John
No John No
