That's Why I Left The Mountains
Gene Autry- written by A. Fields/F. Hall

I had a gal in the mountains
She told me that she would be true
But she messed around with another man
Just what she shouldn't do

  Now that's why I left the mountains
  That's why I went to roam
  That's why I ain't never goin' back
  Back to my mountain home

She told me that she'd meet me
One night at half past eight
And I sood there for a long long time
But my gal was two days late

I said: we'd get married
I told her a time and again
But I can't stand that kind of a gal
That suits with other men

I lie good for a nickel
And I drink all that I can
But my gal said she would never wed
Another drinkin' man
