Lyrics
OLD CARLA CAME DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN IN SEARCH OF A MAN ┬ęPat Flanakin


VERSE
Old Carla came down from the mountain in search of a man
All ragged and torn she came down from hillbilly land
Where the life is as hard as the callouses on both her hands
Old Carla came down from the mountain in search of a man

VERSE
Her hair was all matted, it clung to her face like a rug
And the strength in her arms, it was more than ten men could tug
And the dress that she wore was a sack once, and still had the bugs
When she came down the mountain, old Carla was sippin' a jug

CHORUS
Old Carla hear these words I say
You're not so young and pretty
No one will marry you today
So leave our lovely city

VERSE
Well, she came into town with her bare feet all blistered and green
When she walked down the sidewalk, dogs barked and children all screamed
But she knew what she wanted and I was the first man that she'd seen
As I took off runnin', old Carla she took after me

VERSE
Now she dove through the air and she tackled me out in the street
Well I tried to fight her, but old Carla was stronger than me
She wrapped her arms 'round me and planted a kiss on my cheek
It felt like a fish that I caught once in Old River Creek

CHORUS

VERSE
Well she was determined to get what she wanted you see
Come hell or high water, she wanted her own family
So she lifted me up and she drug me on off to the trees
Where the forest would hide all the yearnings she felt and my screams

VERSE
Well, if you think she's ugly, then you should've seen what I seen
Old Carla got naked and ripped the clothes right off of me
There's no need to tell ya'll about all the birds and the bees
Old Carla was doin' what came to her naturally

CHORUS

VERSE
Old Carla went back to the mountain wearin a smile
She left me all ragged and torn and after a while
There came to our city a rumor she's havin' a child
Old Carla went back to the mountain wearin' a smile

CHORUS

TAG
Please leave our lovely city
