Skedaddle Mountain Lullaby

Well up on Skedaddle Mountain searching for the gold
Haven’t seen no man, nether dead nor alone
Haven't seen the preacher, the one that lied that day
The one who killed my brother just to get away

Skedaddle Mountain lullaby
drank whiskey for his health
now the man must die

Saw the boys from Dixie searching for a kill
went across deep river, damn near took a spill
the man who killed my brother, he don't have long to live
so if you see that preacher, this message you must give

Skedaddle Mountain lullaby
drank whiskey for his health
now the man must die

So if you start a lying out in the wild, wild land
there ain't so many people, not so many hands
if you intend to kill me, you better know right now
that up on Skedaddle mountain, your life ain't worth a shout

Skedaddle Mountain lullaby
drank whiskey for his health
now the man must die

Skedaddle Mountain lullaby
drank whiskey for his health
now the man must die

Skedaddle Mountain lullaby
drank whiskey for his health
now the man must die
