"Takin' Off the Edge" as written by Larry E. Cordle and Larry Shell....
I'VE BEEN DOWN ON MY LUCK
I'VE BEEN DOWN ON MY KNEES
WELL, I'VE BEEN DOWNTOWN
AND I'VE BEEN DOWN ON THE FARM
I CAN'T BE SATISFIED
SO I'M GONNA HAVE TO FIND
A WAY TO KICK BACK AND
TAKE OFF THE EDGE

(CHORUS:)
AND THERE'S A LITTLE GAL I KNOW
JUST SOUTH OF TUPELO
HER HAIR IS DARK
AND HER LEGS ARE LONG AND TAN
SHE RUBS MY BACK JUST RIGHT
'TIL A WAY UP IN THE NIGHT
YEAH, SHE KNOWS HOW TO
TAKE OFF THE EDGE

I'VE BEEN LAID-UP WITH THE FLU
LAID-OFF A TIME OR TWO
I'BE BEEN UPTIGHT
AND I'BE BEEN UP A CREEK
I'M GONNA TAKE MY BAMBOO POLE
HEAD OUT TO THE FISHING HOLE
DON'T YOU KNOW IT HELPS TO
TAKE OFF THE EDGE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

IT'S MORNING ONCE AGAIN
AND OH LORD, I'BE JUST PUNCHED IN
AND I CAN'T HARDLY WAIT
'TIL QUITTING TIME
I'M GONNA GET THAT BIG BROWN JUG
ALL IT TAKES IS A LITTLE SLUG
JUST ANOTHER WAY OF
TAKIN' OFF THE EDGE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

YEAH, SHE SURE KNOWS HOW TO
TAKE OFF THE EDGE
OH, UH, SHE, SHE JUST WALKED IN
HER LEGS...DARK TAN...
I GOTTA GO
