Black Oak Ridge was a place for the breeze
Then innocence left Tennessee
The wind sealed it's lips so now when it blows
There's a fence in the forrest and there's mercury in the snow
My love took a job at guard tower North
Waits on the sun and she walks back and forth
you can save all your stories about moonshining stills
There's a secret their building up in those hills.
Up in Mystery City
my love took a job now she don't say a word
but into a terror this world it has turned
my brother in law, he talked to the trigger man
said he dropped a cigarette over Japan
that come from Mystery City.
