Well I wandered way back in the mountains
I was searching for fortune and fame
I found where the water runs deep from the hills
They call it the medicine springs
They call it the medicine springs

It was there that I met a fair maiden
Yellow hair and big eyes of blue
She told me one day she loved only me
That she'd forever be true
That she'd forever be true

Well I wanted the best for my darlin'
But my pockets were empty and bare
My love was so great for that starlett of mine
I took what another man had
I took what another man had

As I sit here alone in this jailhouse
With a letter I can't hardly read
It said my darlin' has left this ol' world
She's a waitin' in heaven for me
She's a waitin' in heaven for me

Some day I'll go back to the mountains
Where I'll spend the rest of my days
And the water that runs frome the side of the hill
Will water her flowery grave
Will water her flowery grave
