Fare thee well to my father,
Fare thee well to my mother,
Fare thee well sisters, brothers,
I beg they bury me, an orphan,
So when the pearly gates, they open, I'll be led on through,
And I'll be made one of God's children once again.

The devil's runnin' through our valley,
The devil's runnin' through our valley,
He's swimmin' in our precious waters,
He dances in our moonlight;
He won't stop until our family name has been taken to the grave
And Daddy's sleepin' with his gun and one eye open.

I been searchin' for my father,
I been searchin' for my mother,
I been searchin' for my sisters,
I been searchin' for my brothers,
But they been lost before I's born I'm told but still I'm prayin' for their souls
So they may meet me in this castle in the sky.
