Misty mountain lady
Won't you borrow me tonight
I'm gon' keep you company
Oh until the morning light

I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is
I'm the man who wants you

Sit right down, and I will
I'm gon' deal you in this hand
Let the game come easily
You don't have to understand

I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is
I'm the man who wants you
Yeah, oh

Misty mountain lady
Won't you borrow me tonight
I ain't him and this ain't when
He did not treat you right

I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is
I'm the man who wants you
Alright now

I don't want you to be untrue
I don't want you to be untrue
But the truth is
I'm the man who wants you

Who
Who, who
Who
I'm the man who wants you

    My OpinionThis song is the singer songwriter sending a word of advice about how to view their accountant and tax auditor to the women in his life who he loves.

    Misty mountain lady:
    "Misty" as defined by urban dictionary is a totally hot chick.
    adjective
    dang - she's totally misty

    Won't you borrow me tonight:
    Borrow meaning take: Won't youu take up my time

    I'm gon' keep you company
    Oh until the morning light:
    It's going to be a long night with the tax man because his misty ladies are making bank

    I don't want you to be untrue
    I don't want you to be untrue:
    This here is the tax man's job to make sure they aren't untrue to what they owe "the man"

    But the truth is
    I'm the man who wants you:
    Here "the man" in power, wants what is owed to the state.

    Sit right down, and I will
    I'm gon' deal you in this hand
    Let the game come easily
    You don't have to understand:
    The tax man is going to include her in the figuring out the dollars owed, don't fret too much. You don't have to understand, he's got it.
    ..................

    Misty mountain lady
    Won't you borrow me tonight
    I ain't him and this ain't when
    He did not treat you right:
    Here he's just doing his job. Please don't swear, or treat him like he's robbing you.

    chorus
