Chris Ledoux - Mountain Wild guitar chord

MOUNTAIN WILD

by Chris LeDoux

D C D

There was a man that lived in the hills all by himself

D

Chin whiskers' hangin' off his face

C D

In the tree there's a hangin' Bull Elk

G D

The only friend he's got in this world, is a big old Wild Cat

That sleeps down at the foot of the cave

C D

Kills off the big rats

D

I think I'd like to see this guy

C D

Well I might just maybe

But everybody in the little bitty town

C D

They say he's crazy

G

I asked a fellow what the story was

D

Asked him just what happeded, he said

C D

"Boy sit down let me tell you about this mountain wild man"

CHORUS

D C G D

Mountain Wild Man up on the mountain

D C G D

Mountain Wild Man up on the mountain

He had a job and a wife and a little bitty boy

And things were just fine

Till he caught that woman out a runnin' around

And it kinda' messed up his mind

So he went to the bar and he had a few drinks'

And he did a lot of thinking

He could either kill that cheatin' woman

Or drown his sorrows drinking

Well he knew he couldn't kill that cheatin' woman

Or they'd put him in a prison

And his heart and pride were too damn strong

For him to go to drinking

So he broke the bonds of society and started walkin'

He bought a rifle and an ax and a big Bowie knife

And went to the mountains

CHORUS

Boy I'm gonna tell you something

Your momma probably never told ya'

Just what she never told you 'bout your pa

And why he left you

Now you've heard the story of why he left this land

Well boy I know who your pa is

He's the "Mountain Wild Man"

CHORUS
