    Lyrics

    took my fam'ly away from my Carolina home
    Had dreams about the west and started to roam
    six long months on a dust covered trail
    they say heaven's at the end but so far it's been hell

    chorus:
    and there's fire on the mountain
    lightning in the air
    gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

    We were diggin and siftin from 5 to 5
    sellin everything we found just to stay alive
    gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars
    sinnin' was the big thing, lord and satan was his star

    and there's fire on the mountain
    lightning in the air
    gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

    dance hall girls were the evenin' treat
    empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street
    men were shot down for the sake of fun
    or just to hear the noise of their forty four guns

    and there's fire on the mountain
    lightning in the air
    gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there

    Now my widow she weeps by my grave
    tears flow free for her man she couldn't save
    shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame
    all for a useless and no good worhtless claim

    and there's fire on the mountain
    lightning in the air
    gold in them hills and it's waitin' for me there
