JOHN BARLEYCORN From the Ford Star Jubilee CBS TV Production "High Tor" (1956) (Music by Arthur Schwartz / Lyrics by Maxwell Anderson) Bing Crosby (TV Production) - 1956 A good man walkin' home at night A decent honest soul What would you think if he was seen To climb up a barber pole You got to say John Barleycorn, John Barleycorn Is the only explanation For this harmless levitation In the early morn Just blame John Barleycorn John Barleycorn John Barleycorn Never say intoxication Treat him with consideration Never point with scorn Just blame John Barleycorn A broker, careful in his ways Can be devarm inlay (sic) What would you think if he sat down To hatch an ostrich egg It's got to be John Barleycorn, John Barleycorn This absurd dissipation Probably is pure relation Judge him not I warn Just blame John Barleycorn Hooh, John Barleycorn, John Barleycorn He will salt your conversation Make you like your occupation Happy you were born Our own John Barleycorn To bankers most respectable Among the Godly troup Suppose they climb to spend the night In their bulldozer's scoop They're messin' with John Barleycorn, John Barleycorn Is the only explanation For their midnight elevation Judge them not, I warn Just blame John Barleycorn Hooh, John Barleycorn, John Barleycorn Never say inebriation They're just off the reservation Biggs and Skimmerhorn With old John Barleycorn
