Monteagle Mountain  Johnny Cash


Verse 1:
I just [D]rolled out of Nashville in my big rig headin' south
My [A]eyes are on fire feels like [G]cotton in my [D]mouth
[D]My whole body's achin' but I got to make them big wheels roll
I got to [A]be in Florida by tomorrow morning with a [G]full heavy [D]load
[D]I got to get passed Atlanta as soon as I can tonight
I got to [A]try to dodge the scales and stay [G]out of Smoky's [D]sight
[D]But there's one big thing standin' like a nightmare in my way
I got to [A]top Monteagle Mountain a [G]little bit later to-[D]day
Goin' [G]down Monteagle Mountain on [D]I-24
It's [A]hell for a trucker when the [G]decil's at your [D]door
He'll [G]tempt you and tell you [D]come on let her roll
Cause the [A]mountain wants your rig and [G]trucker I want your [D]soul
Verse 2:
[D]When I started down Monteagle the brakes just wouldn't hold
I [A]knew I was in trouble and a-[G]bout to lose [D]control
[D]The runaway ramp was waitin' I saw the warnin' sign
I said [A]Lord help me make it have [G]mercy on this soul of [D]mine
[D]Well I ploughed into that runaway ramp and I could feel that big truck groan
My [A]life flashed right before my eyes and for a [G]minute I thought I was [D]gone
[D]But when the smoke cleared I thanked God that I was still alive
Cause when there's a [A]runaway on Monteagle some [G]truckers don't sur-[D]vive
Goin' [G]down Monteagle Mountain...

Have fun...
