Stagger Mountain Tragedy
K. Kristofferson
Album: Border Lord


      C               F               C                F
I was born on Stagger Mountain in the sunshine and the snow
    C               Bb       F      G
And leavin' was the first mistake I made
      C                G              F             C
But I hungered for the shadows in the valley down below
                             Bb             C
And the girl that danced the tune the Devil played

Her smile was like the blindin' light of sunshine on the snow
And the flashin' of her hair was black as sin
And her body set the smokes of Hell to boiling in my skull
When the fiddle of the Devil made her spin

        F                    C
Born in sunshine high on the mountain
          G  F            C
Where the air is pure and cold
            G       F       C
But there's darkness in the shadows
       Bb            C
In the canyons of my soul


The lantern cast her shadow like a demon on the wall
And her naked sweat was gleamin' on her skin
Then the room was spinning closer as her clothes began to fall
And the eagle started screamin' in my brain

Then I saw the laughing dagger and I heard the devil's scream
And her bleedin' heart was beatin' in my hands
Then the darkness flew away and I was standing by a tree
With a hangin' rope a-danglin' from a limb
