Ozzy Osbourne - Over the Mountain

Over the mountain take me across the sky
Something in my vision, something deep inside
Where did I wander, where d'ya think I wandered to
I've seen life's magic astral plane I travel through.
I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how.
Over and over always tried to get away
Living in a daydream only place I had to stay
Fever of a breakout burning in me miles wide
People around me talking to the walls inside
I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how.
Don't need no astrology it's inside of you and me
You don't need a ticket to ride with me - I'm free.
Over and under in between the ups and downs
My mind's carpet magic ride goes round and round.
Over the mountain kissing silver inlaid clouds
Watching my body disappear into the crowd.
Don't need no astrology it's inside of you and me
You don't need a ticket to ride with me - I'm free.

"Over the Mountain" is the lead track of heavy metal musician Ozzy Osbourne's album Diary of a Madman. It's one of Ozzy's most well known songs, and easily recognized by its drum introduction. This song has been released on several compilation albums. # The song has been covered by heavy metal band Fozzy (fronted by professional wrestler Chris Jericho) on their debut album. # At 2:30 the "Black Sabbath" tritone riff can be heard. Osbourne has since stated that guitarist Randy Rhoads never even realized that he copied it. "There's a riff in Randy's solo that he lifted from the song "Black Sabbath". I don't think that Randy ever realized it until I pointed it out to him later."
