​Stop, Look and Listen

This song is by Kokomo Arnold and appears on the compilation album Kokomo Arnold, Vol. 2 (1935-1936) (1991).

Oh stop and listen, hear those bells a-tone
Oh stop and listen, hear those bells a-tone
I found my faro, lying on a cooling board

Says today has been, a long old lonesome day
Says today has been, a long old lonesome day
Seems like tomorrow, mama going to be the same old way

Now don't your house look lonesome, when a hearse roll in front of your door
Now don't your house look lonesome, when a hearse roll in front of your door
I found my faro, lying on a cooling board

Says and it smokes like lightning, and it faro shine like gold
Says and it smokes like lightning, and it faro shine like gold
I wouldn't have seen her, not to save nobody's soul

Lord then I ain't going down, that big road by myself
Lord then I ain't going down, that big road by myself
If I don't carry you, mama I'm going to carry somebody else

And I followed my faro, to the new burying ground
And I followed my faro, to the new burying ground
Watch the pallbearers, when they lay my faro down
