  Nashville Skyline recording session 5, Nashville TN - 18.feb.1969  

Where was you, mama
When the train passed your shed?
Where was you, mama
When the train passed your shed?
Standing in my frontdoor
Wishing to the good lord I was dead.

Yodle-hee-hee.
Yodle one time for me, Bob!
Yodle-hee-hee.

I get my breakfast here
I get my dinner down in New Orleans
I get my breakfast here
Get my dinner down in New Orleans
(Or down in Birmingham)
Gonna get me a mama
Lord, I ain't never seen.


Yodle-hee-hee.

I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
Than to stay in Atlanta
Treated like a dirty dog.

Yodle-hee-hee.

If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water around
If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water around
Throw my trunk out the window
Let the house burn on down.

I'd like to do it another time. Okay!   up
