Mountain Wild  Chris LeDoux

[D]There was a man that lived in the hills a[C]ll by him[D]self
C[D]hin whiskers' hangin' off his face
In the [C]tree there's a hangin' [D]Bull Elk
The o[G]nly friend he's got in this world,[D] is a big old Wild Cat
That sleeps down at the foot of the cave
K[C]ills off the b[D]ig rats
I t[D]hink I'd like to see this guy
[C]Well I might just m[D]aybe
But everybody in the little bitty town
[C]They say he's c[D]razy
[G]I asked a fellow what the story was
A[D]sked him just what happeded, he said
"Boy sit down let me tell you about t[C]his mountain w[D]ild man"
[D]Mountain W[C]ild Man [G]up on the m[D]ountain
[D]Mountain W[C]ild Man [G]up on the m[D]ountain
He had a job and a wife and a little bitty boy
And things were just fine
Till he caught that woman out a runnin' around
And it kinda' messed up his mind
So he went to the bar and he had a few drinks'
And he did a lot of thinking
He could either kill that cheatin' woman
Or drown his sorrows drinking
Well he knew he couldn't kill that cheatin' woman
Or they'd put him in a prison
And his heart and pride were too damn strong
For him to go to drinking
So he broke the bonds of society and started walkin'
He bought a rifle and an ax and a big Bowie knife
And went to the mountains
Boy I'm gonna tell you something
Your momma probably never told ya'
Just what she never told you 'bout your pa
And why he left you
Now you've heard the story of why he left this land
Well boy I know who your pa is
He's the "Mountain Wild Man"
