Came Down from the Mountain

Ricardo Zegri 2002

 

Came down from the mountain this mornin’

Hung my coat on a Joshua Tree

The letter in my pocket’s got a whiskey stain

My bottle’s gonna set me free, lord

My bottle’s gonna set me free

 

Chorus I’ve traveled from sea to sea

My conscience in front of me

I’ve traveled from sea to sea

Waiting to be set free, lord

Something gonna set me free

 

The town spreads its legs before me

Just behind that tumbleweed

Time is waitin’ in the middle of the road

It’s pistol’s gonna set me free, lord

It’s pistol’s gonna set me free

 

Chorus

 

It’s been 14 years of running

Not from a sheriff or a deputy

I fell in love with my brother’s wife

Her faith is gonna set me free, lord

Her faith gonna set me free

 

Chorus

 

Got a telegram just yesterday

She said come on home to me

Your brother he is dead & gone…STOP

Her kiss is gonna set me free, lord

Her kiss is gonna set me free

 

Chorus
