The Ballad of Floyd Collins lyrics
The Ballad of Floyd CollinsJEWELL
Deep in the land of the hollows an' creeks,
If'n you git lost you git lost fer weeks.
Listen to the tale of a man who got lost
a hundred feet under the winter frost.
JEWELL & NELLIE
Now Floyd was a reasonin' man;
He knew what he wanted an' he had a plan.
He was jes' as smart as he was brave;
He was gonna find him the perfect cave.
NELLIE, MISS JANE & HOMER
Even Floyd knew somethin' wasn't right.
He was suff'rin' nightmares at night.
But he didn't worry 'bout what he dreamed;
Things was goin' good or so it seemed.
Went lookin' fer his fortune under the ground...
Sure enough his fortune is what he found.
