"Juke Box Blues" as written by Helen Carter and Maybelle Carter....
I walked into a honky tonk just the other day
I dropped a nickle in the juke box just to hear it play
I didn't have no tune in mind, I didn't wait to choose
Just dropped a nickle in the slot and I played the juke box blues

Theres' a guy in there with an old tin horn
And a feller on an old banjo, and the man of the fiddle
He wasn't no slouch he could really drag that bow
Well, the man on the fiddle he must have got tired
I didn't hear him say, 'cause he cut loose on the steel guitar
And the juke box ran away
And I've herd something going strong
It must have been a drum
It gave that song a solid beat
Boy it was goin' some

I walked into a honky tonky just the other day
I dropped a nickel in the juke box just to hear it play
I didn't have no tune in mind, I didn't wait to choose
Just dropped a nickle in the slot and I played the juke box blues

I've played a lot of juke boxes, most everyone in town
That's the first tune I've ever heard
That can make one night surround
Play the juke box blues, such a rhythm I've never heard
I danced out both of my shoes
