Dinosaur Jr. – Mountain Man lyrics

Mining for a sacred lode
Drilling into untouched stone
The world has done enough to me
The horror now I'll never see

Got to fight off grizzly bears
Got to eat, so I grab a few hares
Got to struggle to survive
That's the reason I'm alive

I know I left you hurting
Disappeared with no goodbyes
But I heard the snowcats calling
I'm alright, baby please don't cry
If the guy is right for you
He doesn't live on bear cat stew
I'll live without you alright
I figured you was not sleeping at night

Got to fight off grizzly bears
Got to eat, so I grab a few hares
Got to struggle to survive
That's the reason I'm alive

The animals were my first real friends
They'll protect me 'til the end
Where the people lived was filled of lies
And the truth has no disguise

I know I left you hurting
Disappeared with no goodbyes
But I heard the snowcats calling
I'm alright, baby please don't cry
If the guy is right for you
He doesn't live on bear cat stew
I'll live without you alright
I figured you was not sleeping at night

I'm a mountain man
Rip that fucker right off, I feel fine
This is a mountain man

'cause I'm a mountain man
