ALLEGHENY (Chris Gantry) Johnny Cash & June Carter - 1973 JUNE CARTER: (Yelps and hollers in the background throughout) JOHNNY CASH: How she got that junk car runnin' guess I'll never know It never ran but once and set two winters in the snow Well imagine runnin' out on me when I lay sound asleep Allegheny Well my big mistake was thinkin' she was something I could keep She stole my winter's food supply and something else I fear My savin's in the mattress have strangely disappeared Now those who know me best knows he who robs me best beware Allegheny I'm gonna call up the dogs and hunt you down, Drag you back here by the hair Oh Allegheny, something tells me you're dis-satisfied CARTER: Well could it be because I've been your mail-order bride CASH: There's a half of you that's French CARTER: Yeah and I could crave a better style CASH: And a half of you is Cherokee CARTER: Yeah and I've gone wild CASH: Allegheny She's got a head start on me as a crow flies half a day And unless I miss my guess she'll stop to rest in Monterey But if I take the Knoxville Highway, thirteen hours it will be Allegheny Well she forgot I knew the shortcut I'll be there in less than three Oh Allegheny something tells me you're dis-satisfied CARTER: Well could it be because I've been your mail-order bride CASH: There's a half of you that's French CARTER: Yeah and I could crave a better style CASH: And a half of you is Cherokee CARTER: Yeah and I've gone wild CASH: Allegheny I signaled for my dogs to wait outside the hotel door I described her to the desk clerk He said, "try the second floor" And then he mentioned, "she's got company" And that marks the stranger's doom Allegheny I wish I was her so I could see my face When I bust into the room Oh Allegheny something tells me... Allegheny...Allegheny...Allegheny Come back here Allegheny.....FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2002)
