Tishomingo Blues

Listen (MP3)
Listen (RealAudio)

Oh, hear that old piano
From down the avenue
I smell the onions
I look around for you
My sweet old someone, coming through the door
The band is playing
I hope you’re staying
Honey, could we ask for more

I’m going to Minnesota
To see a movie show
It’s called ‘Lonely Guy’
About some folks I know
He lives in a railroad shack, and doesn’t have a friend
It’s February
On the Prairie
But it will all turn out in the end.
