Can he climb old Caney Mountain?
Can he outrun that Crusading mob of men
who aim to kill him with the Crucifix theyd fished out of Hodgsons Mill.
They drug her cold blue body from its depths.
That old relic served to drown her as a milestone round her neck.

Ohhhhh ohhhhh ohhhh (x2)

Can he clear that western wall which looms large out the Ozarks side?
Calls of men and dogs are closer as is the end of his life.
Could he ever find forgiveness from those Gospels he came to preach.
Held her down as he baptized her so that heaven she might reach.

Ohhhhh ohhhhh ohhhh (x2)

High shined sequined buckle in that Bible belt
High shined sequined buckle in the middle of that Bible belt

Can he climb old Caney Mountain?
Can he outrun that Crusading mob of men
who aim to kill him with the Crucifix theyd fished out of Hodgsons Mill.
They drug her cold blue body from its depths.
That old relic served to drown her as a milestone round her neck.
Can he climb old Caney Mountain?
