Snake Mountain Blues lyrics

Mr. ten dollar man
Mr. ten dollar man
Let me tell you where you're bound
Let me tell you where you're bound
When you drink your green liquor
When you drink your green liquor
Lord, you'll roll to the ground
Lord, you'll roll to the ground

But you come around here
But you come around here
With your money in your hand
With your money in your hand
Tasted my woman
Tasted my woman
You'll die where you stand
You'll die where you stand

Snake mountain's gonna crumble
Snake mountain's gonna crumble
Lord, and fall from the sky
Lord, and fall from the sky
'til that woman of mine
'til that woman of mine
Keeps on telling her lies
Keeps on telling her lies

If I'd die lord, she'd weep
If I'd die lord, she'd weep
And she'd weep and she'd mourne
And she'd weep and she'd mourne
As soon as I was buried
As soon as I was buried
Forget I been born
Forget I been born

Well my daddy, he rides on a long holy train
Well my daddy, he rides on a long holy train
And the first winds of winter
And the first winds of winter
Well, I'll see him again
Well, I'll see him again

And it's goodbye to that yellow-headed misery I've known
And it's goodbye to that yellow-headed misery I've known
Snake mountain is callin'
Snake mountain is callin'
Is callin' me home
Is callin' me home

Got the snake mountain blues x4
Got the snake mountain blues x4

Got the snake mountain blues x4
Got the snake mountain blues x4

It goes something like this:
*[one verse of the original is left out.

It goes something like this:
Well the snake mountain blues

Have got me down low
Well the snake mountain blues
I could die in the morning
Have got me down low
And no one would know
I could die in the morning
Well, my woman comes 'round
And no one would know
My body she'd found
Well, my woman comes 'round
Go down to dundee
My body she'd found
(and) have her a time]
Go down to dundee
(and) have her a time]
