lyrics

I came down the mountain,
to give my horn a blow
thought I heard that pretty little mis say
"yonder comes my beau.."

Rode in with the Buckskin Boys,
by Commander Cohen
"pardon me" he said quietly
"I believe your love is showing."

the mountain girls were sweet,
the valley girls are fine
I met this smart and pretty little miss
and I had to make her mine

Petite Marie de la Bois
sweeter than you all
the reason i love the girl I love
she comes whenever I call

comes whenever I call, comes whenever I call
reason i love the girl I love
she comes whenever I call

if you see me coming,
you better step aside
walking like i'm 9 feet tall
i'm aching for my bride

met her in the summertime
got married in the fall
the reason i love the girl I love
she comes whenever I call

comes whenever I call, comes whenever I call
reason i love the girl I love
she comes whenever I call

Lost out on the river
waves a crashing over
freezing in the water
sent a prayer out to my lover

she leapt from bed and in her gown
she pulled me from the squall
the reason i love the girl I love
she comes whenever I call

comes whenever I call, comes whenever I call
reason i love the girl I love
she comes whenever I call
