(Written by Jack Clement)
Way down in the state of Georgia,
Through the swamps and the everglades.
There's a big ol' hole in Tiger Mountain.
God help the man who gets lost in Miller's Cave.
I had me a girl in Waycross, Georgia,
But she had unfaithful ways.
She made me feel I wasn't wanted,
Like the bats and the bears in Miller's Cave.
I couldn't stand the way she did me.
Couldn't take her low down ways.
Before I'll stay with a cheatin' woman,
I'll go and live with the bears in Miller's Cave.
Caught her out, Sunday morning,
With some guy they call big Dave.
The meanest man in Waycross, Georgia,
I'd rather fight a mountain lion in Miller's Cave.
I said: "You'll pay both you and Davey,
"I'm gonna see you in your grave."
They laughed at me and then I shot 'em,
I took their cheating, scheming bones to Miller's Cave.
That woman made me feel unwanted,
But I guess I showed her I was brave.
The most wanted man in the state of Georgia,
But they're never gonna find me `cause I'm lost in Miller's Cave.
