Tara Mountain

They say don't go on Tara Mountain,
If you're looking for a wife.
'Cause Zoran Janic has a pretty young daughter,
He's mighty handy with a gun and a knife.

Her tender lips are sweeter than honey,
And Tara Mountain protects her there.
The bears and birds tell Zoran Janic,
If a stranger should enter there.

All of my dreams are on Tara Mountain,
I want his daughter for my wife.
I'll take my chances and climb that mountain,
Though Zoran Janic, he might take my life.

Her tender lips are sweeter than honey,
And Tara Mountain protects her there.
The bears and birds tell Zoran Janic,
If a stranger should enter there.

I'm going up on Tara Mountain,
It's too lonesome down here below.
It's just not right to hide his daughter,
From the one who loves her so.

Her tender lips are sweeter than honey,
And Tara Mountain protects her there.
The bears and birds tell Zoran Janic,
If a stranger should enter there.

But I don't care about Zoran Janic,
I'm gonna climb up on his mountain.
I'm gonna take the girl I love,
I don't care about Zoran Janic,
I'm gonna climb up on that mountain.
And I'll get the one I love,
I don't care about Zoran Janic...

The song is based on a real place and a real person. Janic lived on Tara Mountain in the Dinaric Alps of western Serbia and was Merle Kilgore's uncle. Zanic lived most of his life on a farm located on the northern edge of the mountain. Zanic lived to be 102 and was buried at the Tara Mountain Cemetery.

Additional lyrics, not used on original recording

"The mountain's slopes are clad in forests
With lots of karst or limestone caves
The highest peak there is Kozji rid
On the mountain's western edge
They said my lips were sweeter than honey
But how do they know when no one's ventured there?"
