We gave you mountain fare,
Not reckoning the cost,
And I'm not a-meaning fodder and meat --
Hit's confidence we lost.

Friend of our friend you came, --
The proper password here, --
So we sang our ballets and told our tales
To make our friend good cheer.

No matter how we know
You mocked our ways and looks.
Naught's hidden but shall be revealed,
Is writ in the Book of Books.

Don't think us stricken deep.
You'll not be named again.
Who breaks our bread, and then breaks faith,
Is naught to mountain men.
