Little Jimmy Dickens - Sleepin At The Foot Of The Bed Lyrics


Did you ever sleep at the foot of the bed
When the weather was a whizzin' cold
When the wind was a whistlin' around the house
And the moon was yellar as gold
You give your good warm mattress up to Aunt Lizzie and Uncle Fred
Too many kinfolks on a bad night so you went to the foot o'the bed

I could always wait til the old folks et and eat the leavin's with grace
The teacher could keep me after school I'd still have a smile on my face
I could wear the big boy's worn out clothes and let sister have my sled
But it always did get my nanny goat to sleep at the foot o'the bed

Was fine enough when the kinfolks come and the kids brought brand new games
You could see how fat all the old folks was and learn all the babies names
Have biscuits and custard and chicken pie we all got Sunday fed
But I know'd durn well when night time come I was headin' for the foot o'the bed

They say some folks don't know what it is havin' company all over the place
To wrestle for cover on a winter night with a big foot sittin' in your face
Er a cold toe nails a scratchin' your back and the footboard scrubbin' your head
I'll tell the world you ain't lost a thing never sleepin' at the foot o'the bed

I've done it over and over again in this land of the brave and the free
And in this all fired battle of life it's left it's mark on me
For I'm always a strugglin' around at the foot instead of forgin' ahead
And I don't think it's caused from a dog gone thing but sleepin' at the foot o'the bed

[Thanks to Jeffrey Crouch for lyrics]
