lyrics

Running down to Caroline with hellhounds on my heels
I’m going up to Virginny to hold my baby near
Got a bottle full of felonies and I ain't got no time
Need to get back across that Mason-Dixon Line
So I’m going, well I’m gone away from here

I was just a simple lad with mud on my hands
I dreamed of the city where I’d become a man
I’ll strike out for riches, I’ll strike out for gold
I met me a woman who took my soul
Ole’ Molly she tricked me, had that look in her eyes
The closest thing I’ve ever seen to a devil in disguise
I fell hard boys, I was drowning in that sea
Of fast living city life, the only life for me
So I’m going, well I’m gone away from here

She brought me to Big John with a deal to make
She told me the world was ours to take
But I wound up with those felonies and ran out of time
Had to get on back across that Mason-Dixon Line
I tell you this now with a jailhouse for my home
That devil woman she took, all of my soul
So don't follow in my ways
And please, hear the words I say

Get on down to Georgia and kick off those shoes
See a baby in Tennessee and get rid of them blues
Go on up to Arkansas and breathe that Ozark air
Wind up in Kentucky, there’s some wild women there
