FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN The Marshall Tucker Band Took my fam'ly away from our Carolina home Had dreams about the west and started to roam Six long months on a dust covered trail They say heaven's at the end But so far it's been hell And there's fire on the mountain Lightening in the air Gold in them hills and it's waiting for me there We were digging and shifting from five to five Selling ev'rything we found just to stay alive Gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars Sinning was the big thin Lord And satan was the star And there's fire on the mountain Lightening in the air Gold in them hills and it's waiting for me there Dance hall girls were the evening treat Empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street Men were shot down for the sake of fun Or just to hear the noise of their 44 guns And there's fire on the mountain Lightening in the air Gold in them hills and it's waiting for me there Now my widow, she weeps by my grave Tears flow free for her man she couldn't save Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame All for a useless and no good worthless claim And there's fire on the mountain Lightening in the air Gold in them hills and it's waiting for me there
