COUNTRY BOY Jimmie Driftwood - 1958 The country boy's got plenty o' corn A buckskin saddle with a silver horn The best ol' boy that ever was born Saddle's his mule on a moonlit night Finds him a girl to hold him tight And don't come home till broad daylight The country boy, he ain't no fool He does his courtin' on a long-eared mule Gets her up behind his saddle Tells her about his hogs and cattle She knows good and well he won't tattle Parks his mule by a shady tree Hugs her a little and says "Oh Gee! You know you're the only girl for me" The country boy, he ain't no fool He does his courtin' on a long-eared mule Found him a girl in Caroline Pretty little girl in Caroline She fed him on chicken and she fed him on wine Found him a girl in Tennessee Pretty little girl in Tennessee She fed him on cake and sassafras tea The country boy, he ain't no fool He does his courtin' on a long-eared mule The country boy's got a greenback bill A little log cabin on the top of the hill And he's just as happy as a whippoorwill Got his mule and ready to go To take his girl to the dosey-doh And shake his leg till the rooster's crow The country boy, he ain't no fool He does his courtin' on a long-haired mule The country boy sings tenor and bass Goes to the table with a poker face Nobody giggles when he says grace Makes no brags and he tells no lies Hugs all the girls and whips all the guys And goes straight to Heaven whenever he dies The country boy, he ain't no fool He does his courtin' on a long-haired mule (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2005 with update by Joe Locker- August 2013)
