(Tom T. Hall)
'69 Newkeys Music 
You know George I was just layin' here thinking 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 thinking
And 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 limit sign
And then fate laid her heavy hands upon me
And brought the accident that left me blind
[ piano ]
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'm gonna ride those trains when they yell all aboard
You 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
