Lyrics

George I was just a layin' here thinking I'm blind for that I was all alone Old timer if you weren't here to guide me I'd be lost and they'd never find my bones

I just came here to the North Woods for some thinking A man's just gotta rest once in a while And I'm really glad you're still around to guide me It seems to me we walked a hundred miles You know how much I've always liked this cabin it's quiet and I get a chance to think I just can't figure things out in that city the bars are there and you know how I drink You know George I made a fortune in the big town my name is on the city limit sign And then fate laid her heavy hand upon me And brought the accident that left me blind Old buddy you know how that woman did me I guess you knew her better than I did George I guess you knew how much it hurt me The day the judge gave her our little kids She said she wouldn't care if I should drop dead With all that insurance I don't guess she would Most people think the wilderness is quiet But just listen to the wolves out in the woods Well tomorrow when I'll leave here I'll be different I'll ride the train when they say all aboard You've spent a lotta time here in the North Woods You are still goin' with me aren't you George George George where are you George George no kiddin' now George George don't foolin' where are you George
