Lyrics

Back in the days of my childhood
Life was simple and passed by so slow
We lived on a farm beyond the backwoods
In the valley where the Pigeon River flows

I’d get up every morning with the rising sun
And work the land with my hands and a hoe
In the afternoon I’d slip off when the chores were done
To the one place Momma warned me not to go

Poison Cove- so many years ago
But it’s like yesterday within my memory
Poison Cove- I was only ten years old
Still I carry your secrets round with me

I was headed home one evening along about twilight
When I came upon a moonshine still
The bootleg man was waiting for a gunfight
Cause a revenuer was coming down the hill

Hid there in the shadows and too scared to run
I held my breath and didn’t make a sound
I heard the fiery blast from a shotgun
Then I saw the lawman fall to the ground

Poison Cove- so many years ago
But it’s like yesterday within my memory
Poison Cove- I was only ten years old
Still I carry your secrets round with me

In that moment- my life was forever changed
Now I’m haunted by what can’t be undone
I still see the lawman dying on that mountain range
And my daddy, holding the smoking gun

Poison Cove- so many years ago
But it’s like yesterday within my memory
Poison Cove- I was only ten years old
Still I carry your secrets round with me

Yes I carry your secrets round with me
