Roll on, John

Oh, roll on John, and make your time
For I'm broke, and can't make mine.

Oh I dreamed last night, Oh, Lu was dead
With her apron string tied 'round her head.

Oh who's been here since I've been gone?
It's ole Aunt Jenny with her night cap on.

Oh up to my chin, and under my nose
Where a-many of a quart and a gallon goes.

Oh roll on John, don't roll so slow;
When the sun goes down, we'll roll no more.

Recorded by Buell Kazee, Rufus Crisp.
