lyrics

Caleb Meyer lived alone in them hollering pines
made a little whiskey for himself to help him pass the time
one evening, in the back of my house, Caleb come around
he called my name ‘til I went out
with no one else around

Caleb Meyer’s ghost is gonna wear them rattlin’ chains
but when I go to sleep at night, don’t you call my name

where’s your husband, Nelly Cane, where’s your darlin’ gone
has he gone on down the mountainside and leave you all alone
Yes, my husband’s gone to Bowling Green to do some business there
then Caleb threw that bottle down and grabbed me by the hair

he threw me in the needle bed, across my dress he lay
he pinned my hands above my head and I commenced to pray
I cried, my God, I am your child, send your angels down
then feeling with my fingertips, the bottleneck I found
I drew that glass across his neck, fine as any blade
I felt his blood pour fast and hot around me where I laid
