Jeremiah Johnson … made his way into the mountains …

The Ballad of Jeremiah Johnson – Tim McIntire

Jeremiah Johnson made his way into the mountains
Bettin’ on forgettin’ all  the troubles that he knew
The trail was wide and narrow
And the eagle  or the sparrow
Showed the path he was to follow as they flew.
A  mountain man’s a lonely man
And he leaves a life behind
It ought to  have been different, but oftimes you will find,
That the story doesn’t  always go that way you had in mind.
Jeremiah’s story was that kind. . .
Jeremiah’s story was that kind.

The Way that you Wander … Tim McIntire  

The way that you wander is the way  that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

Jeremiah Johnson (Vocal Mix #2): Tim McIntire 

An Indian says you search in vain for what you cannot find.
He says  you’ll find a thousand ways for runnin’ down your time.
An Indian didn’t  scream it, he said it in a song,
And he’s never been known to be wrong.
He’s never been known to be wrong.

  1. I’ve seen this mowie I was 12 in 72, in France ! Three years ago I wanted seen it again witth my son and my wife, but they do’nt like it….for me it’ s very important mowie, a very stong story, now I’m singing “the way that you wander is the way that you choose” with my very frenchy accent..

  2. I have been looking everywhere for some of the soundtrack to the movie on mp3 but no such luck. You have any suggestions?

    1. Jerry, it is mine. I was a senior in high school when it came out. I bet I’ve seen it at least 20 times or better. My wife loves it too. Definitely a top 5 movie in my lifetime.

      1. “You’ve come far, pilgrim.”

        It’s a Classic. Undeniable. Lost count how many times I’ve watched it …
        Will again …

  3. Love the movie, beautiful land scape, Robert Redford, nice story don’t mind watch it over and over again .

    1. Mohamad,

      You’re absolutely right. Wonderful movie. And I’ve watched it many times.
      It’s on TV quite often and if come across it, it’s hard not to watch it again – with it’s many classic scenes.
      Happy viewing my friend !
