Back Porch Blues

Misty mountains....older than time
Carolina mystery....opens up my mind
I was way up in heaven, don't wanna come down
Finding deeper meaning....miles from any town
Got the mountains in my blood....playin' back porch blues

We killed off the red man and drove him from his home
Tried to tame the wilderness, couldn't leave the land alone
I feel that our worst is still yet to come,
destruction of our beauty, it can't be undone
An I'm sittin here alone...I'm playin' back porch blues..yeah!

Misty mountains....older than time
Her beauty runs deep....if you seek than you might find
I was hid up for twenty days....don't wanna come down
I'm findin deeper meanin'....miles from any town
Got the mountains in my blood
I'm playin' back porch blues!

The measure of a man is what he can control
The money's what drives him...void of any soul
For the harm that's been done....can't be turned around
All the jive that gets played in this rugged backwoods town
Got the mountains in my blood....playin' back porch blues!

Hid up here for ten days....don't wanna come down
I'm findin deeper meanin'....miles from any town
Got the mountains in my blood!....I'm playin' back porch blues...yeah!
Got the mountains in my blood!....I'm playin' back porch blues

....mountains in my blood
....mountains in my blood
....playin' back porch blues
....playin' back porch blues
....playin' back porch blues
....playin' back porch blues
