From the recording ...just in it for the eggs


I’m walking down this dirt road
I got my guitar on my back
I don’t know where I’m going
Don’t know if I’m ever coming back
Yeah my woman went and left me
For some dude named Jack

I’m walking down this dirt road
I got the blues by my side
I’ve got to keep on walking
Because I got no way to ride
Yeah I think I’ll go down to Memphis
And hang out on Beale Street awhile

My woman went and left me, baby, for another man
She took my last ten dollars right out of my hand
She took my brand new Cadillac I’d just filled with gas
And then her new man Jack, he went and kicked my ass

Now I’m walking down this dirt road
And I don’t know what to do
I’ve got blisters on my heels
And there’s a hole in my shoe
Yeah I’ve got a busted tooth
And my face is black and blue
