OH! SINGER (Myra Smith / Margaret Lewis) Jeannie C. Riley - 1971 Oh! singer, sing me an old song, yeah Oh! singer, sing me an old song Sing me an old song about cotton bales Tell me how the good earth feels down in the high white cotton, yeah 'Cause in my life I'll never get to walk on my knees in the fields Oh! singer, sing about the railroad Sing about a coal shovelin' fireman on the L and N rail Let me gather round the fire with all the people in the depot 'Cause in my life, singer, I'll never ride those coal fire trains Take me back, oh! singer, take me back I'm livin' a life I can't slow down 'cept with a song And I wanna know how the people made it without big corporations And I wanna feel how the people lived when life was slow Oh! singer, take me to the river Let me ride the big riverboat down to New Orleans Let me lean overboard and wash my hands in the Mississippi water 'Cause, singer, I can only ride that boat in a song you sing Take me back, oh! singer, take me back I'm livin' a life I can't slow down 'cept with a song And I wanna know how the people made it without big corporations And I wanna feel how the people lived when life was slow Oh! singer, sing me an old song Sing me an old song about cotton bales Tell me how the good earth feels down in the high white cotton, yeah 'Cause in my life I'll never get to walk on my knees in the fields In the fields (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2011)
