Already a lover of American singer-songwriter Patty Griffin, Allison Crowe was introduced to Griffin's "Up to the Mountain" by Canadian rock and soul musician Bob Benvenuti when they performed at a Christmas "Tidings" concert together.

Here she performs the song live-in-the-studio - "Out of the Fog" in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada.

Warmest thanks to the team behind this popular news and arts magazine - Michael Fisher, Television Producer, Bruce Lane, Camera - and all the OotF crew at Rogers television.

"Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)", a guitar version of the Patty Griffin song from Allison Crowe, is one-half of a double-A-side single release - along with "Arthur".

Rubenesque Records Ltd., Canada's most independently successful music label, celebrates its 10th anniversary with this characteristically passionate performance pairing.


Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)

Words and music by Patty Griffin
As performed by Allison Crowe

I went up to the mountain
Because you asked me to
Up over the clouds
To where the sky was blue
I could see all around me
I could see all around me

Sometimes I feel like
I'm never nothing but tired
But I'll keep on walking
Walking 'til the day I expire
Sometimes I lay down
No more can I do
Then I go on again
Because you asked me to

Some days I look down
Afraid I will fall
And though the sun shines
I see nothing at all
Then I hear your sweet voice
Come and then go, and then go
Telling me softly
That you love me so

The peaceful valley
Way up over the mountain
The peaceful valley
Few come to know
An' I may never get there
Ever in this lifetime
Sooner or later
It's there I will go

Sooner or later
It's there I will go
