A fingerpicking romp with just a little dissonance. Kind of old-timey feeling.

Written and performed by Tom O'Brien

A song about how real love can change even the most obstinate people.
I was born a mountain
No one gonna move me
I was sure and certain
Till you tunneled through me
Now I'm not
A mountain
Any more

I was born an ocean
Stretching free and endless
No one gonna cross me
Till you bridged my distance
Now I'm not
An ocean
Any nore

All the things that I think that I am
Wash away like letters in the sand

I was born an island
Bigger than Australia
No one gonna reach me
Now I'm here to tell ya'
That I'm not
An island
Any mpre

I was born a mountain
I was born a mountain

Just adored this song from the first note and riff and I don't even go for the blues usually .... really wonderful - I don't know why but I find it very moving.
