MOSE ALLISON lyrics - One Room Country Shack

MOSE ALLISON
"One Room Country Shack"
(Mercy Dee Walton)

Sittin' a thousand miles from nowhere
In my one room country little shack
Sittin' a thousant miles from nowhere
In my one room country little shack
My only worldly possession
Is a raggedy ol' 'leven foot cotton sack

I wake up every night around midnight
People I just can't sleep no more
I wake up every night around midnight
People I just can't sleep no more
Only crickets and frogs to keep me company
And the wind howling around my door

I'm gonna leave here early in the morning
I'm 'bout to go out of my mind
Said I'm gonna leave here early in the morning
I'm 'bout to go out of my mind
I'm gonna find me some kind of companion
Even if she dumb, deaf, crippled and blind
