    High on a mountain where the sun still shines
    And the water runs a little lazy
    Wild-eyed and lonely, running out of time
    Some will say I died half-crazy

    One time a hustler took me for a ride
    All because I tried to deceive her
    She broke me down and laughed and left me weak inside
    The more I lost my pride, the more it pleased her

    Carry me 'cross the water,
    I've been over there once before
    Stayed with a poor man's daughter
    I can't live in this country no more

    Death beds and ragged threads are my last home
    Someone should have known of my ending
    Born bad, I killed a man for sympathy
    Ain't much left of me worth defending

    Carry me 'cross the water,
    I've been over there once before
    And I stayed with a poor man's daughter
    I can't live in this country no more
