Recorded by: Merle Haggard
Writer: Merle Haggard
[G] The Old Man From The Mountain's
Comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you
So I [A] called you on the [D] phone
Get [G] rid of Joe the grinder
You [C] better be there a-[G] lone
'Cause the Old Man From The [D] Mountain's
Comin' [G] home.
[G] I've been a-workin in the sawmill
I'm [C] all up-tight and [G] tense
And I got word that someone's
Been [A] diggin' under my back [D] fence
Thought [G] I'd better call you
[C] Let you know to-[G] day
That the Old Man From The [D] Mountain's
On his [G] way.
Been workin' my dang fool head off
All for a dollar bill
Now I need a bunch of good lovin'
So I'm comin' down the hill
Don't want no friendly henry's
Warmin' up my bed
And the Old Man From The Mountain
Means what he said.
