Raleigh & Spencer

I've been all around this whole wide world
I've been down in sunny Tennessee (2)

Raleigh and Spencer they're burning down
Lord, there ain't no more whiskey in this town (2)

I've played cards with the king and the queen
And I gambled the ace and the trey (2)

I could eat more fat meat than a pretty girl gal could fry
I'll tell more of them doggone lies (2)

Whatcha gonna do when the women are all gone
I'll hang my head and cry (2)

You can trample down the flowers all around my grave
But they'll rise and bloom again (2)

I've pawned my shoes for a bottle of booze
I'll drink it and I'll lay down and die (2)


As recorded on #121 "Blues & Branches"
