​The Lost Cabin and the Mystery Trees

This song is by Lost Dogs and appears on the album The Lost Cabin And The Mystery Trees (2006).

Heard you're living in The Lost Cabin
Far behind The Mystery Trees...
The day you left me in San Bernadino
I was scopin' out some five and dime
While I was liftin' a couple of kick-knacks
You split in that'ol Plymouth of mine

You always claimed there's still gold
'Round Yreka And 49er blood in your veins
Today I'm gonna breathe in the hickory wind
And catch me a couple of trains
Swear I'll find you somehow my darlin'
I don't expect it will be a breeze

Heard you're livin' in The Lost Cabin
Far behind The Mystery Trees
It's said "our treasure's where our heart is
" It took your leavin' to straighten me out
And to see without love I am nothing
But a desert in an endless drought
I'm finally headin' up there to the North Coast
And givin' the cops the slip

Swearin' off cheap wine and petty crime
And following a pretty good tip
Swear I'll find you somehow my darlin'
I'll even crawl on my hands and knees
Heard you're livin' in The Lost Cabin
Far behind The Mystery Trees
If I don't make it then I'll die tryin'

Without faith you can't please the good Lord
And the cost of sins unforgiven
Is just something I can't afford
Did you find your little bit of Heaven?
Well, I'm hopin' it's missing one thing
An old sinner man with his heart in his hand
Your sweet face his only good dream

Just called your brother whose in Oklahoma
He told me flat out he'd heard you were dead
Yeah, that's the rumor goin' 'round
But I slammed the phone down
On the harsh things that S.O.B. said
Now I'm climbin' up the hills 'neath Mounth Shasta
And hopin' that the fates will play fair

Got me an old winter coat, a flash-light and a rope
And I'm prayin' you're not dead up there
Swear I'll find you somehow my darlin'
Don't expect it will be a breeze
Heard you're living in The Lost Cabin
Far behind the Mystery Trees
Swear I'll find you somehow my darlin' And forever I do believe
We'll be together in The Lost Cabin
Far behind the Mystery Trees
