Gram Parsons

Way down south in the state of Georgia

Through the swaps and Everglades

There's a hole in Plager Mountain

God help the man who gets lost in Millers's Cave.

I had a girl in Waycross, Georgia

But she had unfaithful ways

You know she made me feel unwanted

Like the bats and the bears in Millers's Cave.


I caught her out one Sunday morning

With a man they called Big Dave

The meanest man in Waycross, Georgia

I'd rather fight a mountain lion in Miller's Cave.

I called her down both her and David

Said I'm gonna see you in your grave

The laughed at me until I shot um

I took their cheating scheming bones to Miller's Cave.

You know she made me feel unwanted

But I showed her I was brave

The most wanted man in the State of Georgia

They'll never find me 'cause I'm lost in Miller's Cave.
