Way down in the state of Georgia
Through the swamps and everglades
There's a hole in Tiger Mountain
God help the man who gets lost in Miller's Cave.
I had a girl (had a girl)
In Waycross, Georgia (Waycross, Georgia) but she had unfaithful ways
Made me feel (made me feel) I was unwanted (so unwanted)
Like the bats and the bears in Miller's Cave.
I couldn't stand the way she did me
Couldn't take her low down ways
Before I'd stay with a cheatin' woman
I'll go live the bears in Miller's Cave.
I caught her out (caught her out) one Sunday morning (Sunday morning)
With a man they call Big Dave
Meanest man (meanest man) in Waycross, Georgia (Waycross, Georgia)
I'd rather fight a Mountain Lion in Miller's Cave.
I said you'll pay, both you and Davey
I must see you in your grave
They laughed at me and then I shot 'em
I took their cheatin', schemin' bones to Miller's Cave.
That woman made (woman made) me feel unwanted (so unwanted)
But I showed 'em I was brave
Most wanted man in the state of Georgia
But they'll never find me 'cause I'm lost in Miller's Cave.
Dark cold, cave, Miller's Cave.
