"Bearcreek Blues" lyrics - THE CARTER FAMILY

"Bearcreek Blues"

Way up on Bear Creek, watching the sun go down [2x]
It makes me feel like I'm on my last go-round.

The water on Bear Creek it tastes like cherry wine [2x]
You can take one drink, you're drinking it all the time.

If you stay on Bear Creek, you'll get like Jesse James [2x]
You'll take two old pistols and hold up that Bear Creek Train.

I'm going high, high up on some lonesome hill [2x]
Look down on Bear Creek where my good gal used to live.
