lyrics

Whoa now sheriff can you give me a ride, down to that old county line?
What I’ll do for you boy is give you a ride, if you ain’t got no trouble on your mind.
Whoa now sheriff can you give me a ride, Itta Bena’s down the, down the line.
What I’ll do for you son is give you a ride, if you ain’t got no trouble on your mind.
Getting dark but I ain’t worried, and I ain’t hungry, standing out by the highway side.
So now sheriff, can you give me a ride, down to the town, down the line.
You don’t come from Mississippi, and you sure aren’t looking hungry, Why you standin’ out on the highway side?
I came from Colorado, but its getting mighty cold you know, Fright train from Pueblo to old Texline.
Morgan City, Mississippi, rode that freight train down the line,
Going to New Orleans, and when I get there, Goin’ to do that old piedmont guitar rag.
