Clinch Mountain Blues

Livin’ up on top of the mountain
Livin’ up where the hills are steep
Got no home ain’t got no place to sleep
Got no place to sleep

Roll on roll on Clinch Mountains
Roll on you old Clinch Mountain blues
I can’t lose these Clinch Mountain blues
These Clinch Mountain blues

Goin’ back to mother and daddy
Goin’ back to see them both someday
When I’m there it’s there that I’ll stay
There that I will stay

Travelin’ down this old rocky road
Travelin’ down this road to find my way
Back to the old folks and my home so gay
My home so gay

Leavin’ right now yes I’m leavin’
Packin’ up clothes but I’ve none to pack
Leave these Clinch Mountains and I ain’t a-comin’ back
I ain’t a-coming back
