Took my family away from my Carolina home
Had dreams about the West and started to roam
Six long months on a dust covered trail
They say heaven's at the end, but so far its been hell

And there's...
Fire on the mountain
Lightning in the air
Gold in them hills
And its waiting for me there

We were diggin' and siftin' from 5 til 5
Sellin' everything we had just to stay alive
Gold flowed free like the whiskey in the bars
Sinnin' was the big thing, lord and Satan was his star

And there's...
Fire on the mountain
Lightning in the air
Gold in them hills
And its waiting for me there

Dance hall girls were the evening treat
Empty cartridges and blood lined the gutters of the street
Men were shot down for the sake of fun
Or just to hear the noise of their .44 guns

And there's...
Fire on the mountain
Lightning in the air
Gold in them hills
And its waiting for me there

Now my widow she weeps by my grave
Tears flow free for her man, she couldn't save
Shot down in cold blood by a gun that carried fame
All for a useless and no good worthless claim

And there's...
Fire on the mountain
Lightning in the air
Gold in them hills
And its waiting for me there

...Waiting for me there
