The Walkabouts "Snake mountain blues"

Mr. ten dollar man
Let me tell you where you're bound
When you drink your green liquor
Lord, you'll roll to the ground
But you come around here
With your money in your hand
Tasted my woman
You'll die where you stand
Snake Mountain's gonna crumble
Lord, and fall from the sky
'Til that woman of mine
Keeps on telling her lies
If I'd die Lord, she'd weep
And she'd weep and she'd mourne
As soon as I was buried
Forget I been born
Well my daddy, he rides on a long holy train
And the first winds of winter
Well, I'll see him again
And it's goodbye to that yellow-headed misery I've known
Snake Mountain is callin'
Is callin' me home
Got the Snake Mountain blues X4
Got the Snake Mountain blues X4
*[One verse of the original is left out.
It goes something like this:
Well the Snake Mountain blues
