Cumberland Gap Song Lyrics

Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap

Kiss me momma, kiss your boy
Bless me well and lucky
For I won’t be back til’ I return
I’m gone to old Kentucky
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
That’s what the scouts all tell ya
Sure enough it may get tough
If it doesn’t kill ya, kill ya

********

Kentucky she’s a waiting on the other side
Give you the fever, put the daylight in your eyes

********

Brother John’s already gone
With the full-blood Cherokee maiden
He made the trip in the blizzard’s grip
I’d rather wrestle Satan
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Oh, the snow kept coming
Picked her up upon his back
By God, he loved that woman!

********

Daniel stood on the pinnacle rock
Lookin’ up and down the mountain
Took his trusty old flint-lock
Daniel started shoutin’, shoutin’:

********

Kentucky she’s a waiting on the other side
Give you the fever, put the daylight in your eyes

********

Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap
Cumberland gap, it’s a devil of a gap.

Cumberland Gap Song Chords

Cumberland Gap, is the devil of a gap

Kiss me mama, kiss your boy

Bless me well and lucky

For I won’t be back ’til I return

I’m going to old Kentucky

Cumberland Gap, is the devil of a gap

That’s what the sc outs all tell ya

Sure enough it’ll make it tough

If it doesn’t kill ya, kill ya

Kentucky she’s a waitin’ on the other side

Give you the fever

Put the daylight in your eye

Brother John’s already gone

With a full blood Cherokee maiden

He made the trip in the blizzard’s grip

I’d rather wrestle Satan

Cumberland Gap, devil of a gap

Oh, the snow kept coming

Picked her up upon his back

My god he loved that woman

Daniel stood on the pinnacle rock

Looking up and down the mountain

Took his trusty old flintlock

Daniel started shouting, shouting

Kentucky she’s a wait in’ on the other side

Give you the fever

Put the daylight in your eye

Cumberland Gap, is the devil of a gap
