“Cabin In The Woods” by Lou Shields

Meet me on back down, by the old willow tree
Down in that old Hollow, we’ll build it there one day
No goin’ back now, that river right down this way
Them Dogs are still a howlin’ but I’ll be livin free


Oh lordy lord, you ain’t comin’ after me
Yes yes, don’t you know I paid them all off I say
Oh lordy lord, they can’t come after me
Yes yes, I paid that man and I’ll be livin’ free
Meet me in that holler, gonna build a cabin, right there I say
Oh they had that shotgun and it was, pointed right at my head
Don’t ya know I paid that man and I should be livin’ free
Meet me in that holler gonna build a cabin in the woods there today, today

Old man run me down now but I ain’t no property
I’m a runnin’ through our woods no they won’t find me
Fell on his own shotgun when I paid him off that day
Them dogs are still a hollerin’ but I’ll be livin’ free

Oh we’re together now, break of a new day
Runnin’ through our woods where they won’t find me
Paid ‘em all off now, never get me again
Debt free livin’clean soon, livin’ alright I say
