Long John Songtext
von Dave Van Ronk

Long John Songtext

I′m Long John; I'm a long time gone
Like a turkey through the corn
With my long clothes on

Well, if I had a-listened, to what my good gal said
Well, I′d a been a-sleepin', in my good gal's bed
But I didn′t listen; I just rambled about
Well, now I′m on a chain gang, with my teeth poked out

I'm Long John; I′m a long time gone
Like a turkey through the corn
With my long clothes on


I got a heel in the front; I got a heel behind
Well, you can't quite tell, I′m a-runnin' or a-flyin′
I'm way out yonder, you know, ahead of them hounds
Ain't a hound in town, that can run me down

I′m Long John, I′m a long time gone
Like a turkey through the corn
With my long clothes on

I'm standin′ on the corner, with a dollar in my hand
You know, I'm waitin′ for the cold things, that the white folks send
Sendin' old cold ′tatoes and a chittlin' stew
And sendin' old hog eye, and a cold tough too

I′m Long John, I′m a long time gone
Like a turkey through the corn
With my long clothes on
With my long clothes on
With my long clothes on
