A Campfire Song Lyrics - 10,000 Maniacs

A lie to say, "O my mountain has coal veins and beds to dig 

500 men with axes and they all dig for me" 

A lie to say, "O my river where many fish do swim 

Half of the catch is mine when you haul your nets in" 

 

Oh no never will he believe that 

His greed has a blinding ray 

No devil or redeemer will cheat him 

He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold 

 

A lie to say, "O my mine gave a diamond big as a fist 

But with every gem in his pocket, the jewels he has missed 

A lie to say, "O my garden is growing taller by the day 

He only eats the best and tosses the rest away 

 

Oh no never will he believe that 

His greed has a blinding ray 

No devil or redeemer can cheat him 

He'll take his gold where he's lying cold 

Six deep in the grave 

 

(His oldest pain and fear in life) 

Something is out of reach 

Something he wanted 

(There'll not be time) 

(His oldest pain and fear in life) 

Something is out of reach 

 

He's being taunted 

(There'll not be time, oh no) 

Something is out of reach 

(Hey, hey) 

That he can't beg or steal 

(Nor can he buy) 

 

A lie to say "O my forest has trees that block the sun 

And when I cut them down I don't answer to anyone" 

 

No, no, no, never will he believe that 

His greed has a blinding ray 

No devil or redeemer can cheat him 

Take his gold where he's lying cold 

 

La la la la la la 

La la la la la la 

Oh, la la la, la la la la la la la 

A lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely man
