GEORGE (AND THE NORTH WOODS) (Tom T. Hall) Tom T. Hall - 1969 You know, George, I was just layin' here thinkin' About me being blind and all alone Old timer if you weren't here to guide me I'd be lost and they'd never find my bones I just came here to the North Woods for some thinkin' You know a man just get to rest once in a while And I'm really glad you came along to guide me It seems to me we walked a hundred miles You know how much I've always liked this cabin It's quiet and I get a chance to think I just can't figure things out in the city The bars are there and you know how I drink You know, George, I made a fortune in the big town Why my name was on the city limits sign And then fate laid her heavy hand upon me And brought the accident that left me blind Old buddy, you know how that woman did me I guess you knew her better than I did George, I guess you knew how much it hurt me The day that old judge gave her both my kids But she said she wouldn't care if I's to drop dead With all that insurance I don't guess she would Most people think the wilderness is quiet Would you listen to the wolves out in the woods Well tomorrow when I'll leave here I'll be a changed man I'll ride those trains when they yell all aboard You've spent a lotta time here in the big woods I'm really glad you're goin' with me, George George, George, George, are you there Hey man, you're not puttin' me on are you George, George, George (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2013)
