MILLER'S CAVE


way down in the State of Georgia
among the swamps and the everglades
there's a big old hole in Tiger Mountain
God help the men who gets lost in Miller's Cave

I had me a girl from Wayross, Georgia
but she had unfaithful ways
she made me feel I was unwanted
like the bats and the bears in Miller's Cave

I couldn't stand the way she did me
couldn't take her low down ways
before I'd stay with a cheating woman
I'll go to live the bats and bears in Miller's Cave

I caught her out Sunday morning
with some guy they call Big Dave
the meanest man in Waycross, Georgia
I'd rather fight a mountain lion in Miller's Cave

I said you'll pay both you and Davy
I must see you in your grave
they laughed at me and then I shot them
I took their cheating scheming bones to Miller's Cave

I couldn't stand the way she did me
I guess I showed her I was brave
the most wanted man in the State of Georgia
they'll never gonna find me cause I'm lost in Miller's Cave
