lyrics

"Far Side of the Mountain"

He’s been staying the far side of the mountain
They say that Lois left him, but no one’s seen her living

The yard is full of cars and women’s clothes that he don’t own
Heard they tried the phone, then they called the law, but he ain’t home

Nothing in the daylight, a fence around the hillside,
Jangling of wood chimes, noises in the nighttime

The yard is full of cans with bullet holes from guns that he don’t own
Heard they tapped his phone, when they called the law, and he ain’t alone

A Pit Bull and a Mastiff tore into the sheriff
Someone saw a smoke whiff rising in the sunset

You can hear ‘em in the moonlight howlin like a dog fight
High on meth and Bud Light, suckin on a glass pipe

Heard a woman screeching, hollering, and screaming
Ringing through a hard rain from the far side of the mountain

Just shadows in a downpour leavin in a four-door
Out along the lakeshore, packed in like a clown car
Off onto the highway covered me in road-spray
Someone jumped a freight train, vanished in the tall grain
