I started down the mountain several years ago,
Seems I couldn't move much faster fallin' down this path ya know.
I've was searchin' for some answers
And I didn't want to climb.
So I started down the mountain but no answers did I find

I couldn't say,
I do not know.
Could you point which way to go.
I am lost, I'm a victim, I'm a sinner in my soul.
I'm a poor wayfarin' stranger.
I have nothin' left to lose.
I have fallen down the mountain,
Wretched righteous, flesh for fools.

Sadness flows like water down the lonely mountain side.
Who would walk beside a sinner who has bubbles in his pride.
People say they do not know, when I know they've done the same.
Who would take the repercussions when the bottle is to blame?

I couldn't say, I do not know.
Could you point which way to go.
I am lost, I'm a victim, I'm a sinner in my soul.
I'm a poor wayfarin' stranger.
I have nothin' left to lose.
I have fallen down the mountain,
Wretched righteous, flesh for fools.

I'm winding down a river, I will ride this silver road.
Down the path of least resistance,
Chasing whipporwills and beau.
I don't miss the time I lingered
In the clouds up in the sky.
But I'll never climb the mountain for those days have passed me by.

I couldn't say, I do not know.
Could you point which way to go?
I am lost, I'm a victim, I'm a sinner in my soul.
I'm a poor wayfarin' stranger,
I have nothin' left to lose.
I have fallen down the mountain,
Wretched righteous, flesh for fools.
