Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Comin' home, home, home
Thought I'd better warn you
So I called you on the phone
Get rid of Joe the grinder
You better be there alone
'Cause the old man from the mountain's
Comin' home
Verse 2
I've been a-workin' in the sawmill
I'm all up-tight and tense
And I got word that someone's
Been diggin' under my back fence
Thought I'd better call you
Let you know today
That the old man from the mountain's
On his way
Verse 3
Been workin' my dang fool head off
All for a dollar bill
Now I need a bunch of good lovin'
So I'm comin' down the hill
Don't want no friendly Henry's
Warmin' up my bed
And the old man from the mountain
Means what he said
