Well,I sit here gettin' ideas
Ain't nothing but a fool would live like this
Out all night and runnin' wild
Woman sittin' home with a month old child

[Chorus]
Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman would you weep for me.

Just sittin' around drinkin' with the rest of the guys
Six rounds bought, and I bought five
Spent the groceries and half the rent
I like fourteen dollars having twenty seven cents.

[Chorus]

They say roses are red and violets are purple
Sugar is sweet and so is maple surple
Well I'm the seventh out of seventy sons
My pappy was a pistol
I'm a son of a gun.

[Chorus]

He came back to the car very excited and johnny asked him something along the lines of "is it a good one?"... and he could tell by roger's reaction that he had written gold... and he had...
