Roll on the Ground cho: Roll on the ground, boys, Roll on the ground Eat soda crackers, Roll on the ground. Workin' on the railroad Dollar a day, Eat soda crackers And the wind blow 'em away. Big Ball's in Nashville, Big Ball's in town, Big Ball's in Nashville, We'll dance around Get on your big shoes, Get on your gown, Shake off those sad blues, Big Ball's in town. I'll stay in AsheviUe, I'll stick around, I'll stay in Asheville When Big Ball's in town. My love's in jail, boys, My love's in jail, My love's in jail, boys, Who'll go her bail? Get drunk in Asheville, Dance 'round the town, Board up your windows, Big Ball's in town. Let's have a party, Let's have a time Let's have a party, I've only a dime You shake it here babe You shake it there, You come with me, babe, We'll go upstairs. RG
