​I Heard the Voice of a Porkchop

This song is by Jim Jackson and appears on the compilation Good for What Ails You: Music of the Medicine Shows 1926-1937 (2005).

Spoken: Ah, don't that sound good? It sounds good to me.
It's just like somethin' good to drink.
It's all right with me. I know that's playin' good.

I walked and I walked and I walked and I walked, I stopped for to rest my feet
I set down under an old oak tree, there went fast asleep
I dreamt I was sittin' in a swell cafe, hungry as a bear
My stomach sent a telegram to my th'oat, "There's a wreck on the road somewhere"

I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"
Well, you talk about your stewin' beef, I know what's the best
Well, you talk about your chicken, ham and eggs, turkey stuffed and dressed
But I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"

Yeah, I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"
Well, you talk about your stewin' beef, I know what's the best
Well, you talk about your chicken, ham and eggs, turkey stuffed and dressed
But I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"

Spoken: Ah, stir it up now. Damn, don't that sound good? Ah, stir it up

I walked and I walked and I walked and I walked, I stopped for to rest my feet
I set down under an old oak tree, there went fast asleep
I dreamt I was sittin' in a swell cafe, as hungry as a bear
My stomach sent a telegram to my th'oat, "There's a wreck on the road somewhere"

I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"
Well, you talk about your stewin' beef, I know what's the best
Well, you talk about your chicken, ham and eggs, turkey stuffed and dressed
But I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"

Spoken: Ah, ah, ain't that soundin' good? Ah, play it, man! Don't I do that thing? Heh, heh

I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"
Well, you talk about your stewin' beef, I know what's the best
Well, you talk about your chicken, ham and eggs, turkey stuffed and dressed
But I heard the voice of a porkchop say, "Come unto me and rest"

Spoken: Ah, ain't that nice? Ah, it just nice to be nice when you can be nice
