The Morning Side of the Mountain
Tommy Edwards Lyrics


There was a girl, there was a boy
If they had met they might have found a world of joy
But she lived on the morning side of the mountain
And he lived on the twilight side of the hill

They never met, they never kissed
And they will never know what happiness they missed
For she lived on the morning side of the mountain
And he lived on the twilight side of the hill
For love's a rose that never grows
Without the kiss of the morning dew
And every Jack must have a Jill
To know the thrill of a dream that comes true

And you and I are just like they
For all we know our love is just a kiss away
But you are on the morning side of the mountain
And I am on the twilight side of the hill

For love's a rose that never grows
Without the kiss of the morning dew
And every Jack must have a Jill
To know the thrill of a dream that comes true

And you and I are just like they
For all we know our love is just a kiss away
But you are on the morning side of the mountain
And I am on the twilight side of the hill

I was 12 when I met the love of my life. I was hanging with her brother and then I met his kid sister. My age by the way. After that her brother had no shot ,I liked this girl so much, she was just so much fun . That continued for 55 years . I was so lucky to have her in my life. When she got sick I wrote her a letter and said , I don't know when the crazy love started but by the time I was 16, I knew I wanted to spend my life with you. Well cancer took my beautiful bride and life will not and can not ever be the same for me again. All my tomorrows are yesterday. I miss her so.
