This song is in the key of E to play cross harp 
use an A harp,,, The `50s Rocker Billy Lee Riley does the harmonica
work on this Johnny Rivers version,,,he also does the harp work
on the Beach Boys version of this song. I know there are a few harp players
on this site, we`ve been playing this one for years so I thought I`d tab it complete.

HARP b-3 = bend draw hole 3
     -(23)= draw on holes 2 and 3 together
      4   = blow hole 4  etc.

E 
Standing on the mountain looking down on the city (Riff 1) 
E 
The way I feel is a doggone pity.(Riff 1) 
A 
Teardrops falling down a mountainside (Riff 1) 
E 
Many times I've been here 
E 
Many times I've cried 
      B7 (-4) 
We used to be so happy 
A (4) 
When we were in love 
E         B7           E     
High on a mountain of love. 
(Riff 2) (23) (23) (23) 4 (23) 
E 
Night after night I've been standing here alone 
E 
Weeping my heart out to cold gray dawn 
A 
Praying that you're lonely and you'll come here too 
E 
Hoping just by chance that I get a glimpse of you 
B7 
Trying hard to find you 
A 
Somewhere I love 
E         B7          E 
High on a mountain of love. 

A 
Mountain of love 
F# 
Mountain of love 
A              F# 
You should be ashamed 
       A                  F# 
We used to be a mountain of love 
       A                   B7      
But you just changed your name  (Riff1) 
A 
Way down below there's a half a million people  (Riff 1) 
A 
Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple  (Riff 1) 
D 
Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers  (Riff 1)
A 
Wedding bells are ringing and they should have been ours 
          E7 (-4) 
That's why I'm so lonely 
A (4) 
My dreams gone above 
A          E7         D 
High on a mountain of love. (Riff 2)

(THE REST OF THE SONG FOLLOWS THE ABOVE) 
A mountain of love 
A mountain of love 
You should be ashamed 
We used to be a mountain of love 
But you just changed your name 

Way down below there's a half a million people 
Somewhere there's a church with a big tall steeple 
Inside a church there's an altar filled with flowers 
Wedding bells are ringing that should have been ours 
That's why I'm so lonely 
My dreams gone above 
High on a mountain of love. 

High on a mountain of love. (Riff 2) 
High on a mountain of love. (Riff 2) 
High on a mountain of love  (Riff2)  (fade)
