A Hundred Mountains

This song is by Jackie Lomax and appears on the album Home Is In My Head (1971).

A dozen men from Arkansas swore to bring me in
Through the office of the law they persecute my kin
I have left a hundred mountains way behind
An' I do believe it's countin' on my mind

I can go no further I declare I had my fill
I can go no further I'm gonna wait by the whisky still

I robbed a man who robbed the dead well before their time
Anyone with half a head can see that ain't no crime
I have left a hundred mountains in my past
An' I do believe my time is comin' fast

I can go no further I declare I had my fill
I can go no further I'm gonna wait by the whisky still

(He can go no further) I swear I had my fill
(He can go no further) I'm gonna wait by the whisky still

They shot my leg to pieces, ya know I near enough bled to death
If not for the horse between us I'd still be lyin' there yet
I have mastered many mountains at my best
An' I do believe it's time for me to rest

I can go no further I declare I had my fill
I can go no further I'm gonna wait by the whisky still

(He can go no further) I swear I've had my fill
(He can go no further) I'm gonna wait here for the kill
