hellhound on my trail lyrics – the mountain goats

(originally by robert johnson)

gotta keep moving, gotta keep moving
blues falling down like hail
gotta keep moving
blues falling down like hail

and the daylight keeps moving
there’s a h*llhound on my trail

if today were christmas eve
and tomorrow christmas day
and if today were christmas eve
and tomorrow were christmas day

all i would need is my little rider
and the world would fade away

gotta keep moving, gotta keep moving
blues falling down like hail
gotta keep moving
blues falling down like hail

and the daylight keeps ta worryin’ me
there’s a h*llhound on my trail
