"Tricky Dicky" as written by and Leiber/stoller....
All the chicks back home are going jump and shout
When they hear old Tricky Dicky's busted out

The guard he was a-sleeping in the noonday sun
Flies was a-buzzin' all around his rabbit gun
I slipped down off the rockpile I was a-working on
When that guard woke up, I was up and gone

Tricky Dicky's sure bust out
Tricky Dicky's sure bust out
Tricky Dicky's sure bust out
Gonna tell old Lucy Brown
Tricky Dicky's a-comin' to town

Headed for the river, I was a movin' yak
The sheriff and his dog were breathin' down my back
That river sure was muddy and it sure was wide
I left that bloodhound barkin' on the other side

Tricky Dicky's sure bust out
Tricky Dicky's sure bust out
Tricky Dicky's sure bust out
Gonna tell old Sally Bligh
Tricky Dicky's a-comin' by

Tricky Dicky you know it's true
That I sit here just a-waitin' for you

Farmer's daughter saw me and she gave me a smile
Thought it wouldn't hurt much if I woah, stopped a while
She sat me on the sofa and she gave me a glass of gin
She got me stoned, she telephoned and woah, turned me in

Tricky Dicky's back in jail
Tricky Dicky's back in jail
Tricky Dicky's back in jail
Tell the girls to weep and wail
Tricky Dicky's a back in jail
