Reed, Jerry - Miller's Cave Lyrics

Way down in the state of Georgia in the swamps and everglades
There's a big old hole on the backside of Tiger Mountain
God help the man who ever gets lost in Miller's Cave

Well I had me a gal in Waycross Georgia oh but she had unfaithful ways
God she made me feel feel like I was unwanted
Kinda like the bats and the bears that hang around Miller's Cave

Well I caught her out last Saturday evening with some dude everybody call Big Dave
Just the meanest man ever hit Waycross Georgia
Rather fight me a big old mountain lion in Miller's Cave

So I said you're gonna pay both you and little baby
Woman I'm gonna see you see you in your grave
Well they laughed at me and oh Lord right before I shot them
Then I dragged their lyin' schemin' bones to Miller's Cave

Well I couldn't stand stand the way she done me
So I guess I showed her I was brave
The most wanted man to ever hit the state of Georgia
But they'll never find me because I'm lost in Miller's Cave

    Love Jerry Reed. At one time I had over 20 LPs by the man. In fact, I bought every album he put out for almost 20 years.

  11. drivernjax

    I'm not far away from you. I live in Brunswick, been to Waycross several times in my life.

  12. pias

    i like his style, reminds me of the funky rockabilly/country of Carl Perkins

  13. Bill22252

    Damn. Jerry Reed was awesome. His funky version of 16 tons is also awesome.

    I ask every one,
    "Where do you think those moths came from, out from under your hood... in the spring??"
    ...well they spend all winter, in hibernation, in a Cave in Georgia!!"
    "It's called ... MILLER's CAVE"

    Oh, well..
