Echo Mountain
Recorded by James King
Written Michael Glen and Bill Smith

C
Now up on echo mountain
F
In the spring of 32
C
Jim and Becky Johnson
G7
With a bible and a mule

C
Set out to raise a family
F
But the babies didn't come
C
So when they found that old stray hound
G7 C
They loved him like a son


But soon their prayers were answered
F
The baby had his momma's eyes
C
How that old dog loved him
G7
He would never leave his side

C
They could always trust that faithful hound
F
With the baby they all loved
C
Till the day the child was missing
G7 C
And the dog was drenched in blood

F
Now the cries on echo mountain
C
Are a painful thing to hear

All the neighbors know the reason
G7
For the Johnson's bitter tears

C
When a man don't use good judgment
F
It's the innocent who pay
C
Now the cries on echo mountain
G7 C
Will haunt me to this day


Jim picked up his rifle
F
He shot and killed the hound
C
But there inside the cabin
G7
Was the baby safe and sound

C
When they found the backdoor open
F
And two wolves lying still
C
They knew they'd made a grave mistake
G7 C
With the righteous blood they spilled


Now up on echo mountain
F
You'll find a lonesome grave
C
Marked with a handmade marble stone
G7
That reads God bless the brave

C
When daddy tells the story
F
Of the dog that saved my life
C
He always asks forgiveness
G7 C
And the tears still fill his eyes

F
Now the cries on echo mountain
C
Are a painful thing to hear

All the neighbors know the reason
G7
For the Johnson's bitter tears

C
When a man don't use good judgment
F
It's the innocent who pay
C
Now the cries on echo mountain
G7 C
Will haunt me to this day


When a man don't use good judgment
F
It's the innocent who pay
C
Now the cries on echo mountain
G7 C
Will haunt me to this day
