Even the old folks never knew
Why they call it like they do

I was wonderin' since the age of two
Down on Copperline


Copperhead, copper beech
Copper kettles sitting side by each
Copper coil, cup o' Georgia peach
Down on Copperline

Half a mile down to Morgan Creek
Leanin' heavy on the end of the week
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake
Down on Copperline
We were down on Copperline

One summer night on the Copperline
Slip away past supper time
Wood smoke and moonshine
Down on Copperline

One time I saw my daddy dance
Watched him moving like a man in a trance
He brought it back from the war in France
Down onto Copperline

Branch water and tomato wine
Creosote and turpentine
Sour mash and new moon shine
Down on Copperline, down on Copperline

First kiss, ever I took
Like a page from a romance book
The sky opened and the earth shook

Down on Copperline, down on Copperline, yeah

Took a fall from a windy height
I only knew how to hold on tight
And pray for love enough to last all night
Down on Copperline

Day breaks and the boy wakes up
And the dog barks and the birds sings
And the sap rises and the angels sigh, yeah


I tried to go back as if I could
All spec house and plywood
Tore up, tore up good
Down on Copperline

It doesn't come as a surprise to me
It doesn't touch my memory
Man, I'm lifting up and rising free
Down over Copperline

Half a mile down to Morgan Creek
I'm only living for the end of the week
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake
Down on Copperline, yeah
Take me down on Copperline
Ohhh, down on Copperline
Take me down on Copperline
