Get at 'em boys, go back home
Back to the girl you love
Treat her right, never wrong
How mountain girls can love

Ridin' at night in a high cold wind
On the trail of the old lonesome pine
Thinking of you baby
Feelin' so blue
Wondering why I left you behind

Get at 'em boys, go back home
Back to the girl you love
Treat her right, never wrong
How mountain girls can love

There's a lake in the hill
Where my true love goes
That's when she's thinkin' of me
Why I'm not there only heaven knows
Heaven knows that's where I'd rather be

Get at 'em boys, go back home
Back to the girl you love
Treat her right, never wrong
How mountain girls can love
