Lyrics
All the chicks back home are going jump and shout
When they hear old Tricky d***y's busted out

The guard he was a-sleeping in the noonday sun
Flies was a-buzzin' all around his rabbit gun
I slipped down off the rockpile I was a-working on
When that guard woke up, I was up and gone
Tricky d***y's sure bust out
Tricky d***y's sure bust out
Tricky d***y's sure bust out
Gonna tell old Lucy Brown
Tricky d***y's a-comin' to town

Headed for the river, I was a movin' yak
The sheriff and his dog were breathin' down my back
That river sure was muddy and it sure was wide
I left that bloodhound barkin' on the other side
Tricky d***y's sure bust out
Tricky d***y's sure bust out
Tricky d***y's sure bust out
Gonna tell old Sally Bligh
Tricky d***y's a-comin' by

Tricky d***y you know it's true
That I sit here just a-waitin' for you
Farmer's daughter saw me and she gave me a smile
Thought it wouldn't hurt much if I woah, stopped a while
She sat me on the sofa and she gave me a glass of gin
She got me stoned, she telephoned and woah, turned me in

Tricky d***y's back in jail
Tricky d***y's back in jail
Tricky d***y's back in jail
Tell the girls to weep and wail
Tricky d***y's a back in jail
