Takes rocks and gravel, baby
To make a solid road, make a solid road.
Takes rocks and gravel, baby,
Make a solid road, make a solid road.
Takes a good woman, mama
To satisfy my weary soul.

Have you ever been down on
That Mobile and K.C. line?
Have you ever been down on
That Mobile and K.C. line?
Well I just wanna ask you
If you seen that gal of mine.

Don't the clouds look lonesome
Shining across the sea?
Don't the clouds look lonesome
Shining across the sea?
Don't my gal look good,
When she's comin' after me?  up
