Song Description

A MINER SINGS ABOUT A LADY FAR ABOVE HIS STATION

Story Behind the Song

IT CAME TO ME AFTER READING A BIT ABOUT THE GOLD RUSH -THE TALL TALE OF A MINER WHO KILLED A BEAR AND USED IT'S TEETH AS HIS OWN AND SEEING THE TITLE THE CHAPEAU BOYS ON SOME SHEET MUSIC

Lyrics


CHAPEAU GIRL

I LIVE UP HERE BY THE CHAPEAU BOYS
EVERY NIGHT I HERE EM SINGIN AWAY FOR ALL THE WORLD
THEY FIRE THEIR GUNS AND SHOUT LIKE STINK
THERE?S NO NEED TO FEAR EM
BUT I GOT THE SHAKES FOR THE CHAPEAU GIRL

WITH THE BRAID IN HER HAIR AND HER SMELL ON THE WIND
GIVE ME MORE KIND A DREAMS THAN A MAN SHOUL EVER KNOW
I?LL GO BACK TO MY MINE AND CARVE A DESIGN
TO A CHAPEAU GIRL I CAN CLL MY OWN

IT WAS MY 26 IN 86
I?LL NEVER FORGET IT
THE DAY SHE CAME TO BARKERVILLE
THOUGHT MY HEART WOULD BURST RIGHT OUT OF MY CHEST
AND HOW I LET IT
FLEW TO HER AND ALWAYS WILL

TO THE SPARK IN HER EYE AND THE GRACE ABOUT HER
AND THE VOICE LIKE A BIRD WITH TINY WINGS
I?LL GO BACK TO MY MINE AND CARVE A DESIGN
TO A CHAPEAU GIRL AND I?LL SING

ROUND HERE I?M KNOWN AS THE BEAR MOUTH MAN
CUZ I KILLED A BEAST IN 82 AND STUCK HIS TEETH INTO MY HEAD
SHE?S NEVER GONNA LOOK MY WAY
SHE AINT NEVER SEEN NO THING LIKE ME IN ALL THE FANCY BOOKS SHE READ

I GOT A DOG WHO?S NEARLY BLIND EVERY NIGHT I HEAR HIM
CHASIN THINGS HE?LL NEVER FIND
I?D GIVE ALL THE GOLD ON THE CAMERON CLAIM
EVERY NUGGET THEY SAW GLEAMIN
JUST TO FEEL HER LIPS ON MINE

I SEE HER THE BEST ON A SUNDAY MORN
AS SHE PASSES MY WAY TO THE SAVIOR CHURCH
I TIP HER MY HAT AND SAY THAT IS THAT
OH MY SHE?S THE CHAPEAU GIRL
