The old man from the mountain’s coming 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 coming home

I’ve been working in the sawmill, I’m all uptight and tense
I got wind that someone a been diggin' under my back fence
Thought I’d better call you better let you know today
That the old man from the mountain’s on his way yeah

The old man from the mountain’s coming 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 coming home

Wind it up now!

Been working my dang fool head off all for a dollar bill
And I need a bunch of good loving so I’m comin' down the hill
Don’t want no friendly Henry’s warming up my bed
And the old man from the mountains means what he said

The old man from the mountain’s coming 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 coming home

One more time!

The old man from the mountain’s coming 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 coming home
