Katie Mae
Well you know katie mae is a good girl
Folks say she don't run around at night
I made a mistake and she don't run around at night
Yes, you can bet your last dollar katie mae will treat you right.

Well some folks say she must be a cadillac
But I say she got to be a t-model ford
Yes she got the shape all right, but she can't carry no heavy load.

And she walks this life
Her daddy got oil wells in his backyard
Every time she got to working that woman she never has to work too hard.

I say bye-bye poor katie mae
These are the last words I got to say
Cause if I don't meet you tomorrow
I'll get you early in the next day.back to top
Dark Hollow
I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine
Then to be at home alone and knowin' that you're gone
Would cause me to lose my mind.

Well blow your whistle freight train carry me far on down the track
Well I'm going away, I'm leaving today
I'm goin', but I ain't comin' back.

I'd rather be in some dark hollow where the sun don't ever shine
Then to be in some big city, in a small room, with you upon my mind.

Well I'm going away, I'm leaving today
I'm goin' but I ain't comin' back.back to top
I've Been All Around This World
Up on the blue ridge mountains, there I'll take my stand.
Up on the blue ridge mountains, there I'll take my stand.
A rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand;
Oh lord, I been all around this world.

Lulu, my lulu come and open the door.
Lulu, my lulu come and open the door.
Before I have to walk in with my old 'forty-four'.
Oh lord, I been all around this world.

Mama and papa, little sister makes three.
Mama and papa, little sister makes three.
They're comin' in the mornin'; that's the last you'll see of me.
Oh lord, I been all around this world.

Hang me, oh, hang me, so I'll be dead and gone.
Hang me, oh, hang me, so I'll be dead and gone.
I wouldn't mind your hangin', boys but you wait in jail so long.
Oh lord, I been all around this world.

Up on the blue ridge mountains, there I'll take my stand.
Up on the blue ridge mountains, there I'll take my stand.
A rifle on my shoulder, six shooter in my hand;
Oh lord, I been all around this world.back to top
Wake Up Little Susie
Wake up little susie, wake up. wake up little susie, wake up.
The movie wasn't so hot, it didn't have much of a plot
We fell asleep, out goose is cooked, our reputation is shot
Wake up little susie, wake up little susie

What are you gonna tell your mama, what you gonna tell your pa
What are you gonna tell your friend when they say ooo la la
Wake up little susie, wake up little susie

Well I told your mama that you'd be back by ten
Now susie, baby looks like we goofed again
Wake up little susie, wake up little susie, we gotta go home

Wake up little susie, wake up. wake up little susie, wake up.
The bullfrog's sound asleep, wake up little susie and weep
It's four o'clock and we're in trouble deep
Wake up little susie, wake up little susieback to top
Black Peter
All of my friends come to see me last night,
I was laying in my bed and dying.
Annie bonneau from st. angel say the weather down there so fine.

Just then the wind came squalling through the dark,
But who can the weather command?
Just want to have a little peace to die,
And a friend or two I love at hand.

Fever roll up to a hundred and five.
Roll on up, gonna roll back down.
One more day I find myself alive,
Tomorrow maybe go beneath the ground.

See here how everything led up to this day,
And it's just like any other day that's ever been.
Sun going up and then the sun going down.
Come around, come around.

The people might know, but the people don't care,
That a man can be as poor as me.
Take a look at poor peter, he's lying in pain,
Now let's come run and see, run and see,
Run and see, run, run and see, and see.back to top
Smokestack Lightnin'
Oh, smokestack lightnin', shinin' just like gold
Why can't you hear me cryin'? ooooo
Oh, stop your train, let a hobo ride
Why can't you hear me cryin'? ooooo

Oh, fare you well, I never see you no more
Why can't you hear me cryin'? ooooo

Oh, stop your train, let a poor boy ride, callin' yes I do
Let a poor boy ride, let his foot step on

Oh, who've been you baby, since I've been goneback to top
Hard to Handle
Baby here I am and I'm a man upon the scene
I can give you what you want, but you got to come home with me
I got a whole lot of good ole loving and I got some in store
When I get through throwin' it on to you got to come back for more

Boys and things will come by the dozen
Ain't nothin' but drug store love
Pretty little thing let me light your candle
Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now yes I am.

Action speaks louder than words and I'm a man with great experience
I know you got another man, but I can love you better than him
Take my hand, don't be afraid I'm gonna prove every word I say
I'm advertising love for free so won't you place your ad with me?

Boys and things will come by the dozen
Ain't nothin' but drug store love
Pretty little thing let me light your candle

Give it to me baby, I got to have it, some of your love
It's all I need, early in the morning, late in the evening.back to top
