Fire On The Mountain Lyrics

Fire On The Mountain by Marshall Tucker Band  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



Fire On The Mountain took my fam'ly away from my 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

chorus:
and there's fire on the mountain
lightning in the air
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

We were diggin and siftin from 5 to 5
sellin everything we found just to stay alive
gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars
sinnin' was the big thing, lord and satan was his star

and there's fire on the mountain
lightning in the air
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

dance hall girls were the evenin' 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 sound of their forty four guns

and there's fire on the mountain
lightning in the air
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

Now my widow she weeps by my grave
tears flow free for here man she couldn't save
shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame
all for a useless and no good worhtless claim

and there's fire on the mountain
lightning in the air
gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there
