To the Emerald Isle she bid adieu A widow along with children, too In 18-hundred and 42, and she Settled in the mountains, settled in the mountains Catherine Donnelly raised children five On Irishtown praties they survived And two of her grandsons they did thrive, and they Settled in the mountains, settled in the mountains For town supervisor John Donnelly did run His brother Tom finished the job he'd begun He wed Lucy Clifford and they had one son, and he Settled in the mountains, settled in the mountains When Francis was 14 his father died Be a farmer or carpenter, he couldn't decide But he asked Nora Phelps to be his bride, and they Settled in the mountains, settled in the mountains Assessor, constable, team organizer For 46 years, the town supervisor And as Francis grew older he grew wiser, glad he Settled in the mountains, settled in the mountains Whether bringing town water or building a beach Or lending a hand beyond his reach His life is a lesson that still can teach, why he Settled in the mountains, settled in the mountains Catherine Donnelly settled here in '42 Like so many others, traded old for the new And while our histories may differ, what we share is true: we Settled in the mountains, settled in the mountains ©1991 Dan Berggren
