Lyrics




Down the road came a Junco Partner
boy he was loaded as can be
he was knoked out loaded
he was wobbling all over the street
Singing 6 months aint no sentence
yeh and 1 year aint no time
I was born in Angola
serving fourteen to ninety-nine
Well I wish I had me 1.000.000 dollars
just one million to call me own
I would raise me (grow for my baby!) a tobacco farm
Take a walk…
When I had me a great deal of money
had mighty good friends all over town
but now I aint got no more money
all of my good friends just put me down
So I've go to pawn my ratchett and pistol
yeh I gotta pawn my watch and chain
I would have pawned my sweet Gabriella
but the smart girl would not sign her name
I'm down getting thirsty o the mighty good beer
when I'm dry
give me whiskey when I'm thirsty
give me head stone when I die
Down the road came a Junco Partner
boy he was loaded as can be
he was knocked out loaded
he was wobbling all over the street
