Milk Cow Blues
Well I woke up this mornin'
Looked outdoors
I can tell my milk cow
I can tell by the way she lows
If you see my milk cow
Please drive her on home
'Cause I ain't had no milk and butter
Since that cow been gone

Well you got to treat me right honey
Day by day
Get out your lil' prayer book
Get down upon your knees and pray
'Cause you're gonna need me
You're gonna need my
Help someday
Lord, you're goin' to be sorry
You treated me this way

(Now take it away boys)

Sail on, Sail on, Sail on lil' gal, sail on
Sail on, Sail on, Sail on lil' gal, sail on
You're gonna keep right on sailin'
Till you lose you happy home

(Gene Elders on the Fiddle)

(Aw, here comes Owens guitar)

(That's Benny and Rick)

Well good evenin'
Don't that sun look good goin' down
I said well good evenin'
Don't that sun look good goin' down
And don't that ol' Army cot look lonely
When your lover ain't no place around

Well I tried everything baby
To get along with you
And now I'm gonna tell you
What I'm gonna do
I'm gonna stop my cryin'
And leave you alone
And if you don't think I'm leavin' big momma
Just count those days I'm gone

You ain't gonna see me
You ain't gonna see my sweet face no more
Lord, you're gonna be one big honey
When this world I've gone
