Walkin' Blues
written by Robert Johnson /Horoscope Music Company /BMI

Woke up this mornin'
I was feelin' around for my shoes
I knew I had them
Mean 'ol walkin' blues
But I woke up this mornin'
I was feeling around for my shoes
I know I had them
Mean ol' walkin' blues

Don't ever let her tell you
That the worried blues ain't bad
It's the worst old feeling
That I most ever had
Don't ever let 'em tell you
That the worried blues ain't bad
It's the worst old feeling
I most ever had

Well I'm leaving Jonesboro
If I have to ride the blind                 
I've been mistreated
And I don't mind dyin'
Well I'm leaving Jonesboro
If I have to ride the blind                 
I've been mistreated
And I don't mind dyin'

She's got an Elgin movement
From her head down to her toes
Breakin' on a dollar
Any where she goes
She got a Elgin movement
From her head down to her toes
She break in on a dollar
Any where she goes

Woke up this mornin'
I was feelin' around for my shoes
I knew I had them
Mean ol' walkin' blues
But I woke up this mornin'
I was feelin' around for my shoes
I knew I had them
Mean old walkin' blues

Travelin' Riverside Blues
written by Robert Johnson/ Horoscope Music Company /BMI

If your man gets personal              
Go on and have your fun
If your man gets personal              
Go on and have your fun

Well you barrelhouse, baby
Barrelhouse all night long

I got this woman in Vicksburg
People, she made out into Tennessee        
I got this woman in Vicksburg
People, she made out into Tennessee     

[My] Friars Point mama
Lordy, she hops all over me

Ain't gon' to state no color, but her
Front teeth crowned with gold
Ain't gon' to state no color, but her
Front teeth crowned with gold
She got a mortgage on my body
She got a lien on my soul

I'm going to Rosedale
I'm going to take my rider by my side
Well, I'm going to Rosedale                        
I'm going to take my rider by my side

We gonna barrelhouse, baby
[It was by] the riverside

You can squeeze my lemon 'till the
Juice run down my leg
(You know what I'm talking about baby )
You can squeeze my lemon 'till
Juice run down my leg

I'm going to Friars Point, baby
[I'll be rockin'] til I'm dead
(thanks to Matthew for the help)

Crosscut Saw
written by Bill Sanders & Fred Ingrahm /Irving Music Corporation /BMI

I'm a crosscut saw
Come on drag me across your log
I'm a crosscut saw
Come and drag me across your log
Well I'll cut your wood so easy for you
You gonna say '"hot dog"

Some call me woodchoppin' Danny
Some call me woodcuttin' Sam
I'll cut your wood so good
You will ask me back again

Crosscut saw
Drag me across your log
I'll cut your wood so easy for you
You gonna have to say "hot dog"

Some call me woodchoppin' Sam
Some call me woodcuttin' Dan
I'll cut your wood so good
You know you'll want me back again

I'm a crosscut saw
Come on drag me across your log
Well I'll cut your wood so easy for you
You gonna have to say "hot dog"

Junko Pardner
written by Robert Shad /Frederick Music Company /BMI

Down the road, down the road come
My junko pardner
He was loaded as he could be
He was knocked down, knock down loaded
And he sang this song to me

Well I'd pawn my silver pen                      
I would pawn my watch and chain
I would pawn my pretty Isabella
But the poor gal can't sign her name

Down the road, down the road come
My junko pardner
He was loaded as he could be
He was knocked down, knocked down loaded
And he sang this song to me

Down the road, down the road come
My junko pardner
He was loaded as he could be
He was knocked down, knocked down loaded
And he sang this song to me

Well six months ain't no sentence
And a year just ain't no time
We got boys down in Angola
Serving one to ninety-nine

Down the road, down the road come
My junko pardner
He was loaded as he could be
He was knocked down, knocked down loaded
And he wobbled all over the street

Down the road, down the road come
My junko pardner
He was loaded as he could be
He was knocked down, knocked down loaded
And he sang this song to me

When I was a little boy
About the age of five
My Mama told me
I'd be the greatest thing alive
Now I'm a man
Way past twenty-one
Come on with me honey
We'll have lots of fun
I said MMM, AAAA,child, NNN
That represent man
That indicate I'm grown
But when I say "waaaannnngggggg"
That mean mannish boy

I see that woman
Standin' in that light
I'll make love to ya baby
For three hours tight
What nother man?

And when I shoots
Won't never miss
Make love to your cousin
She can't resist
I said, "MMM, AAA, child, NNN
That indicate "Man"
When I say "waaannnnggg"
That mean mannish boy

I'm a man
Hoochi Koochi man
Natural born lover's man
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone

Well I'm going down To Kansas soon                    
Bring back my second cousin Little John the Conkeroo
I say "MMM, AAA, child, NNN"
That indicate I'm grown
I'm a man
Hoochi Koochi man
Natural born lover's man
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone
I'm a rollin' stone

Battleship Chains
written by Terry Anderson/ Funzalo Music /BMI

Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long and a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my lips to kiss nobody
Kiss nobody but you
I can't use my legs to chase nobody
Chase nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my arms to hold nobody
Hold nobody but you
Can't use my legs to chase nobody
Chase nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

Can't use my arms to hold nobody
Hold nobody but you
Can't use my heart to love nobody
Love nobody but you

You got me tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor
Tied down with battleship chain
Fifty foot long with a two-ton anchor

I'm a One Woman Man
written by Tillman Franks and Johnny Horton
Cedarwood Publishing/BMI

If you told me that you loved me
I would feel so proud
You let me hold you honey
I would holler out loud
I'll never love another
Even if I can
Oh, come to me, baby
I'm a one woman man

Won't you let me, baby,
Just a kinda' hang around
I'll always love you honey
And I'll never let you down
I'll never love another
Even if I can
Oh, come to me, baby
I'm a one woman man

I'd climb the highest mountain
If it reached up to the sky
To prove that I loved you
I would jump off and fly
I'd even swim the ocean
From shore to shore
To prove that I love you
Just a little bit more

Won't you let me, baby,
Just a kinda' hang around
I'll always love you honey
And I"ll never let you down
I'll never love another
Even if I can
Oh, come to me, baby
I'm a one woman man

If you told me that you loved me
I would feel so proud
If you'd let me hold you honey
I would holler out loud
I'll never love another
Even if I can
Oh, come to me, baby
I'm a one woman man

I'll never love another
Even if I can
Oh, come to me, baby
I'm a one woman man
Come to me, baby,
I'm a one woman man

Vigilante Man
written by Woody Guthrie/Ludlow Music, Inc./BMI

Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
I keep hearin' his name
All over this land

We were hiding at the engine house
We were hiding quiet as a mouse
When a man came along
And he chased us out in the rain
Was that a vigilante man?

Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
I keep hearin' his name
All over this land

Why would a vigilante man
Why would a vililante man
Why with a sawed-off shotgun in his hand
Would he shoot his brother and sister down?

Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
Have you seen that vigilante man?
I keep hearin' his name
All over this land

(Is that the end?...It is now!)
