"The Road To Kaintuck" lyrics

The Road To Kaintuck

We're going west to Kaintuck
Down the road to Moccasin Gap
Down the wilderness road
The dug road
The old Reedy Creek road
The road down troublesome
The road through Moccasin Gap

There was a time when going way out west
Meant going to Kaintuck
The dark and bloody ground
As Indians called it
Indians wars were raging
And men like Daniel Boone
And Michael Stoner
Came down the wilderness road
Like countless families did
Through a place in south western Virginia
Called Big Moccasin Gap

It's a hot day in seventy-three
And this is my wife and kid with me
Daniel Boone lost his boy the other day
Young Jim Boone is dead
Twenty miles away
The wagons turn and went back home
Even Daniel couldn't make it alone
I guess probably Daniel could
But he stopped awhile in castle wood

If you love your wife
And love your baby, man
Turn your wagons back
As soon as you can
Every Injun in these hills has gone berserk
You never gonna make it to Kaintuck
Oh, I bet I'm gonna make it to Kaintuck

We're going west to Kaintuck
Down the road to Moccasin Gap
Down the wilderness road
The dug road
The old Reedy Creek road
The road down troublesome
Road through Moccasin Gap

The dug road
The old Reedy Creek road
The road down troublesome
Road through Moccasin Gap
