Jim Lauderdale — Headed For The Hills lyrics

Well I forded the river
I paid all my bills
Gave a gift to the giver
Now I'm headed for the hills

I paid back my borrows
Likewise all my dues
I'll be gone tomorrow
Nothing here I can use

Headed for the hills
Headed for the hills
I can't hear 'em calling
Headed for the hills

Once I had a a woman
Deaf and mute and blind
Only one could hear me
When I tried to speak my mind

Once I had a fiddle
Once I had a bow
There's nothing on the griddle
But I paid back all I owed

Headed for the hills
Headed for the hills
I can't hear 'em calling
Headed for the hills
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/jim-lauderdale-headed-for-the-hills-lyrics.html ]
Can't roll off to glory
Much less Arkansas
Or freedom teritory
Till you satisfy the law

No love, lock and chain
Provides me the key
No blood-soaked law of Cain
Can set my spirit free

Headed for the hills
Headed for the hills
I can't hear 'em calling
Headed for the hills

Last thing I got to do
One thing before I go
To say my love for you
Was all the love I know

If you don't forget me
I'll do the same for you
Forever in your memory
To pay back all that's due

Headed for the hills
Headed for the hills
I can't hear 'em calling
Headed for the hills

Headed for the hills
Headed for the hills
I can't hear 'em calling
Headed for the hills

I can't hear 'em calling
Headed for the hills
