Here I am, too wasted for the evening ride down to mother Mary’s other place.

Can I hang out here beside your fireside? Listen to the rain fall, fallin on the earth ball.

You know I tried, my dear, to be like everybody else, but my body and my mind had
F C F G7 C
So here I am, laid out by your fireside, listenin to the rainfall, fallin on the earth ball
Oh say, please don’t go away. I haven’t got much I can call to
If you’re not here, then somewhere on the south south side
Some scene I’ll make myself fun to keep on laughing
I’ll get by with a little bit o luck again.
Gonna get me a place down here for Thanksgiving dinner, don’t you know?
Gonna get me a lid and keep back out of sight.
It keeps me mellow, gets me way down low,
Playin in the morning sun, singin with a silver tongue.
Gonna dig me a hole, right here in all of them patchwork quilts
Keep my banjo by my side, right there in bed.
Pretend I’m in a rowboat down by the railroad pond,
Playin in the morning sun, playin with a silver tongue
Oh me, what do I see, not much left in the cupboard
Half past three and time to make the survey again
The street’s up, the street’s gone up, the town below got flooded
We’ll get by with a little bit o luck again
