High on a mountain where the sun still shines
And the water runs a little lazy
Wild-eyed and lonely, running out of time
Some will say I died half-crazy

One time a hustler took me for a ride
All because I tried to deceive her
She broke me down and laughed and left me weak inside
The more I lost my pride, the more it pleased her

Carry me 'cross the water,
I've been over there once before
Stayed with a poor man's daughter
I can't live in this country no more

Death beds and ragged threads are my last home
Someone should have known of my ending
Born bad, I killed a man for sympathy
Ain't much left of me worth defending

Carry me 'cross the water,
I've been over there once before
And I stayed with a poor man's daughter
I can't live in this country no more
