Hank Snow – Miller's Cave lyrics

Way down in the state of Georgia
Through the swamps and everglades
There's a hole in Tiger Mountain
God help the man who gets lost in Miller's Cave.

I had a girl in way cross Georgia
But she had unfaithful ways
Made me feel I was unwanted
Like the birds and the bears in Miller's Cave.

(Miller's, Miller's, Miller's, Miller's Cave.)

I couldn't stand the way she did me
Couldn't take her lowdown ways
Before I'll stay with the cheating woman
I'll go live with the bears in Miller's Cave.

I caught her out one Sunday morning
With the man they call Big Dave
Meanest man in way cross Georgia
I'd rather fight a mountain lion in Miller's Cave.

(Miller's, Miller's, Miller's, Miller's Cave.)

I said you'll pay both you and Davy
I must see you in your graves
They laughed at me and then I shot 'em
I took their cheatin' skin and bones in Miller's Cave.

That woman made me feel unwanted
But I showed her I was brave
Most wanted man in the state of Georgia
But they'll never find me 'cause I'm lost in Miller's Cave.

(Dark old cave, Miller's Cave...)
