Nick Drake – Black Mountain Blues lyrics

Old black mountain
Tried to spit in your face
Old black mountain
Tried to spit in your face
Babys grubbing whiskey
Oh she's practising ? ? ?

Old black mountain
Mean as they can be
Old black mountain
Mean as they can be
They use ground butter
Just to sweeten the tea

Had a girl in black mountain
Sweetest girl in town
Had a girl in black mountain
Sweetest girl in town
But she met a sweet black man
Then she threw me down

Well, old black mountain
Can't keep man in jail
Well, old black mountain
Can't keep man in jail
Sure to call him guilty
Judge will cry and bail

I'm bound for black mountain
Me and my razor and my gun
I'm bound for black mountain
Me and my razor and my gun
Gonna cut her if she stands there
And shoot her if she runs
