lyrics

Midnight Mountain Climber

Midnight mountain climber
Keeps gettin’ higher & higher
Late night behind the lyre
His only friend is the fire

Midnight mountain climber
He’s a blacked out backroad driver
Rollin’ on ice, with two flat tires
Won’t be long ‘til the boy expires

How high can you climb?
Tell me, how low can you go?
‘Til it’s beddie bye, closing time,
End of your rope and you’re hear no more (Hoo hoo!)

Midnight mountain climber
Swingin’ on the golden wire
Grippin’ it tighter & tighter
But your load ain’t gettin’ no lighter

Midnight mountain climber
He’s a ramblin’ gamblin’ piker
Tell ya how he plans to retire
Local front page high diver

Midnight on the mountain
Dawn out on the ledge
Drowning in the fountain
That takes, but never gives

Midnight mountain climber
He’s tumblin’ out of the briar
Strummin’ on a dead man’s liar
And singin’ with the devil’s choir

Midnight mountain climber
He’s a crawlin’ red eyed spider
Laughin’ at the cat in the shire
‘Til his smile can’t get no brighter

How high can you climb?
Tell me, how low can you go?
Until it’s beddie bye, closing time,
End of your rope and you’re hear no more (Hoo hoo!)
