"O' Be Joyful" as written by and Cary Ann Hearst Michael Trent Robinson....
Does she wanna get it all back?

O' be joyful
Is that what you're brewing
Does your daddy know
that's what you're doing
His little girl's got a reputation out for ruin
She was givin' them the country away

Machete in the tree stub, hound dog on the chain
Wooden-legged woman playin' a banjo in the rain.
Can't recall the tune but the song's always the same
"Jesus give me strength"

But babe, it's alright
I'm gonna wrap you up tonight,
Carry you out right on time

Well she got Comanche, she got Iroquois
She got a young man that she plays with like a toy
He don't mind when she call him little boy
That's a thing that he enjoys

She wants to give it all back but it's a little too late
He want to start all over, want a shiny clean slate.
Just skin him like a snake and hang him up over the gate.
Don't believe it? Just you wait

But babe, it's alright
I'm gonna wrap you up tonight,
Carry you out right on time

Hey, alright.

Ain't it good to be alive!

Ain't it nice to be fightin' on the winnin' side?
