It snowed on Red Mountain Pass
An' 5-5-Oh was a mess
Come a blade with a flashin' blue light
Beware of the Riverslide Slide."
Now that plow-jockey knew he had a job to do
But we all knew, deep down inside,
'Cause you don't mess around with an avalanche, son
Yeah, you get them plows past Bear Creek Falls,

Seen a lotta them cold, black nights
Flashin' them weird blue lights
You gotta have a real thick hide
You gonna die in the Riverside Slide
Well, it snowed six feet on the mountain that night
An' so did the boy an' his flashin' blue light
Well, he took that plow up 5-5-Oh
An' before he knew it, he was buried alive

Seen a lotta them cold, black nights
Flashin' them weird blue lights
Still settin', the plow on its side
You gonna die in the Riverside Slide
