"The Old Man Down The Road" lyrics

The Old Man Down The Road

He take a thunder from the mountain
He take a lightning from the sky
He bring a strong man to his begging knee
He make a young girl's mama cry

You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump and run
You got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old man
Is down the road

He got the voices speak in riddles
He got the eye as black as coal
He got a suitcase covered
With rattlesnake hide
And he stands right in the road

You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump up, run away
You got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old man
Is down the road

He make the river call your lover
He make the barking of the hound
Put a shadow cross the window
When the old man comes around

You got to hidey-hide
You got to jump and run again
You got to hidey-hidey-hide
The old man
Is down the road

The old man
Is down the road

Ah, you got to
You got to
You got to
Hidey-hidey-hide
