​Rocks and Gravel Makes a Solid Road

This song is by Mance Lipscomb and appears on the album Trouble in Mind (1961).

Rocks and Gravel makes a solid road
Rocks and Gravel makes a solid road
Takes a do-right woman to satisfy my soul

Well, I'm goin' out west just ta see my pony run
Goin' out west to see my pony run
If I win any money I'm gon' send my good girl some

Here's a dollar mama, made it in the rain
Here's a dollar mama, made it in the rain
It's a hard ol' dollar made it just the same

That's your tone daddy, every time you come
That's your tone daddy, every time you come
I ain't got no money but I'll soon have some

Man in the army, wants a furlough home
Man in the army, wants a furlough home
About face rookie, you ain't been here long

Man in the army eatin' out of trough
Man in the army eatin' out of trough
Just waitin' for Uncle Sam to try and pay him off

Got a girl in the country, she won't come to town
Got a girl in the country, she won't come to town
Got one in Louisiana and she's water bound

I can't see how can you, treat your daddy mean
I can't see how can you, treat your daddy mean
When you lay all night in your daddy's arms and dream
