lyrics

One foot two foot, worn out shoe foot
Ain't you got a pallet for me
I spent last night on a bed of leaves
With the coyotes for company

Ain't got no silver dollar
but I got a hell of a smile
Tie a little twine on this staff of mine
It'll be worth your while

I don't take the bread the anymore
I just take a bottle full of wine
Keep the good times a-rollin' in my head
And the good Lord will provide

Hallelujah that morning sun
Whatcha got in store for me
Ain't got far before I hop a barge
Straight down the Mississippi

Sure foot, true foot I got two foot
Ain't much else I need
Found an old guitar in the loft of a barn
Hopped a freight to Tennessee

CHORUS

Hallelujah that morning dove
Come and sing a song for me
I met a sweet woman with her banjo strumming'
Walking in the Allegheny

Just like the man with the lotus flower
I ain't got nothin' to say
I got the world in the palm of my hand
Even if it's just for today

CHORUS

I don't take the wine anymore
I just take a twinkle in my eye
Keep the good times a-rollin' in my head
And the good Lord will provide
