Co-written with Nina Yates, this eerie story of a spirit in the mountain.


Cold Lake Road

Never go down Cold Lake Road
Never go down, don’t go
When darkness fall down on this land
The chill will freeze your soul
No good ever come down Cold Lake Road
Just misery and woe
Better beware any step you take
Down on that Cold Lake Road

Stories are told when the timber men came
They raped sacred land with their saws and chains
The men kept working as the heavens cried
Till the mudslide took every man alive


The old timers say, men tried to build
Lightning struck down and they all were killed
These hills sing don’t even think about trying
At night in the dark hear the voices crying


Slick city man, with your maps and plans
You’ll never get a foothold on this here land
This mountain has a spirit you don’t wanna see
You been warned, now turn around and leave
