Gillian Welch - Caleb Meyer lyrics



I figured out most of the lyrics, but there are a few spots where I'm not quite sure.

Hence, the dashes.

Caleb Meyer, he lived alone

In them hollarin' pines

And he made a little whiskey for himself

Sip it up to pass the time

At the back of my house

Caleb come around

And he called my name 'til i went out

An' no one else around

Caleb Meyer, your 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 darling gone?

Did he go on down the mountain side and leave you all alone?

Yes, my husband'd gone to ---- to do some business there

Then Caleb threw that bottle down and grabbed me by my hair

Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna wear them rattlin' chains

But when I go to sleep at night, don't you call my name

He threw me in the needle bed

Across my dress he lay

Then he pinned my hands above my head and I began to pray

I cried my God, I am your child

Send your angels down

Then feeling with my fingertips, a bottleneck I found

An' I tore that glass across his neck

---------

Then I felt his blood pour fast and hot 'round me where I lay

Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna wear them rattlin' chains

But when I go to sleep at night, don't you call my name

Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna wear them rattlin' chains

But when I go to sleep at night, don't you call my name
