"All Day and All Night" as written by and Jakob Dylan....
I been working double shift all night
Bees make honey I’m making mine
Good men are busy all the time
I been working double shift all night
My line of work suits me fine
Split that apple and chuck that rind
Pull no wishbone that ain’t dry
My line of work suits me fine
Sweet you ramble sweet you roll
Through the bedrock of my soul
I got more good luck than I’ll ever use
All day and all night like a mule

Fat faced farmer off my land
Cross me twice you’ll understand
Me and Delia we’re more than friends
Fat faced farmer off my land
See how high your monkey jumps
Peel that fruit back and give me some
Let this evening do what it does
And see how high your monkey jumps
I’m gearing up to get small
I do it big or don’t do it at all
Ain’t got no baggage that I can’t use
All day and all night like a mule

It’s on back to work they say
Pull your hammer high and straight
Lay your boards out and drag that rake
And get on back to work they say
Give what you’ve got return what you use
Tell me young man whose dog are you
Got bigger secrets than you do
All day and all night like a mule

    General CommentEgads, this one is driving me crazy. Anyone have any idea what this is about?> I have several theories, but none really fit.

    General CommentThis one has strong echoes of Buddy Holly's "Midnight Shift." Not sure if it's intentional or not, but I'd guess so.
