"Hillbilly Willie's Blues" as written by and Willie Mctell....
Roosevelt is a mighty fine man, darlin'
Roosevelt is a mighty fine man, darlin'
Roosevelt is a mighty fine man
Gonna be the president all by land, darlin'

My baby got a diamond ring, darlin'
My baby got a diamond ring, darlin'
My baby got a diamond ring
Poor me ain't got a doggone thing, darlin'

My baby got a Cadillac Eight, darlin'
My baby got a Cadillac Eight, darlin'
My baby got a Cadillac Eight
Poor me ain't got nowhere to stay, darlin'

My baby got a house 'n' lot, darlin'
My baby got a house 'n' lot, darlin'
My baby got a house 'n' lot
Poor me ain't got diddley-squat, darlin'

Moonshine been here long enough, darlin'
Moonshine been here long enough, darlin'
Moonshine been here long enough
Let's get right and drink up that stuff, darling.

Come all the way from Arkansas, darlin'
Come all the way from Arkansas, darlin'
Come all the way from Arkansas
Barefooted in the barnyard door, darling.

Ten-dollar bill and a bottle of beer, darlin'
Ten-dollar bill and a bottle of beer, darlin'
Ten-dollar bill and a bottle of beer
I wish to God my honey was here, darlin'

I got a gal from the white folks' yard, darlin'
I got a gal from the white folks' yard, darlin'
I got a gal from the white folks' yard
She don't drink liquor but she do play card, darlin'
