about

What do you get when you combine a drunken husband with a cheatin' wife...add a little harmonica and twangy cigarbox guitar...and top it off with a foot stompin' beat? ..... A new take on a very old tune, enjoy.

lyrics

First night I come home as drunk as I could be
saw a horse in the stable, where my horse oughta be
come here little wifey and explain yourself to me,
what's a horse doin' in the stable where my horse oughta be?

Oh fool, you crazy fool, 'aint you never seen
it's nothin' but a milkin' cow my granny gave to me

Second night I come home as drunk as I could be
saw a coat hangin' on the rack, where my coat oughta be
come here little wifey and explain yourself to me,
what's a coat doin' hangin' on the rack where my coat oughta be?

Oh fool, you crazy fool, aint you never seen
it's nothin' but a bed quilt my granny gave to me

Last night I come home as drunk as I could be
saw a head sleepin' on the pillow, where my head oughta be
come here little wifey and explain yourself to me,
what's a head doin' sleepin' on the pillow where my head oughta be?

Oh fool, you crazy fool, aint you never seen
it's nothin' but a cabbage head my granny gave to me

Well I've traveled 'round this world ten thousand miles or more
but a cabbage head with a mustache I 'aint never seen before
