Orn'ry Blues

This song is by Sally Roberts.

Meaner than a rattlesnake, lower than a mole
Couldn't be any [hateful], to save my orn'ry soul
I feel like a house afire, doggone, I'm burning up
Somebody's done me dirty, somebody's peed my cup

Going down to the gutter, wallow in the slime
Going down to the gutter, wallow in the slime
Got a nasty feeling, getting orn'rier all the time

Put me in the dungeon, with the sewer rats
Put me in the dungeon, with the sewer rats
Let me suffer, suffer, die among the swill and the bats

When ill winds are blowing, they don't blow me no good
When will winds are blowing, they don't blow me no good
Made me wild and wicked, I ain't acting like I should

Soak me up in liquor, from my head to my shoes
Soak me up in liquor, from my head to my shoes
Cussin' like a sailor, 'cause I've got the orn'ry blues
