JOE BOWERS Walter Vaughn - 1958 VERSE 1 My name it tis Joe Bowers I have a brother Ike I came from old Missouri And all th way from Pike VERSE 2 I'll tell you why I came here And why I came to roam To leave my dear old mother So far away from home VERSE 3 I used to court a gal there Whose name was Sally Black I asked her if she'd marry me She said, it was a whack VERSE 4 She said to me, Joe Bowers, You are the man to win Here's a kiss to bind th bargin, An' she hooves a dozen in VERSE 5 I said to her, dear Sally, O, Sally for your sake I'll go to California And try to make a stake VERSE 6 Says, she to me, Joe Bowers Before we hitch for life You ought to get a little home To keep your little wife VERSE 7 I went to California Put in my biggest licks Went down upon th boulders Just like a thousand bricks VERSE 8 I worked both late an' early In rain and sun and snow I was working for my Sally It was all th same to Joe VERSE 9 At length, I got a letter From my dear brother Ike It came from old Missouri And all th way from Pike VERSE 10 It brought to me, th darndest news That ever I did hear My heart was almost bursting Was almost in despair VERSE 11 It says, that Sal was false to me Her love to me had fled She got married to a butcher And th butchers hair was red VERSE 12 And more than that, th letter said, Enough to make you swear That Sally had a baby And the baby had red hair
