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

I had me a girl in Waycross, Georgia
But she had unfaithful ways
She made me feel I was unwanted
Like the bats and the bears in Miller's Cave

I caught her out one Sunday mornin'
With some guy they called Big Dave
Meanest man in Waycross, Georgia
I'd rather fight a mountain lion in Miller's Cave

So I said "You're gonna pay, both you and David, cause I'm gonna see you in
your grave." And they laughed at me... and then I shot 'em. And then I dragged their
cheatin', schemin' bones to Miller's Cave

I couldn't stand the way she did me
Well I guess I showed her I was brave
Most wanted man in the state of Georgia
They're never gonna fine me cause I'm lost...
In Miller's Cave
