(G) The Old Man From The Mountain's
Comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you
So I (A) called you on the (D) phone
Get (G) rid of Joe the grinder
You (C) better be there a-(G) lone
'Cause the Old Man From The (D) Mountain's
Comin' (G) home.
(G) I've been a-workin in the sawmill
I'm (C) all up-tight and (G) tense
And I got word that someone's
Been (A) diggin' under my back (D) fence
Thought (G) I'd better call you
(C) Let you know to-(G) day
That the Old Man From The (D) Mountain's
On his (G) way.
Been workin' my dang fool head off
All for a dollar bill
Now I need a bunch of good lovin'
So I'm comin' down the hill
Don't want no friendly henry's
Warmin' up my bed
And the Old Man From The Mountain
Means what he said.
