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


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
