Standin' out in the night,

Elizah took me down

To see the Widow give

Rain to the town.

It's against the law

To be a tonic man,

But the Widow know

She's got the upper hand.
B7
So I went on in

Feelin' kinda wheezy.

You know she soothed my mind, boys,
     A7
She rocked me kinda slow and kinda easy
      Em7
All day and all night.


Em7         Em7
"Pick a card 'fore you go--

It's a long trip to Mexico."

Em7         Em7
Elizah waited by the door,

"I can't stay here anymore, no, no."


B7
Then she took a pill

She washed her feet in the mud
          
She said "Look out son,
         A7
You know, I just started a flood

For forty days and forty nights".



Then I got my shoes,

And 'Lizah called my name.

She said it looked to her

Like it's gonna rain.

Then the Cotton King

He came in chokin'

And the Widow laughed and said:

"I ain't jokin'"--

B7
"Think what you want"

She said, "Now don't ya tease me.

I just fell in love, boy,
  A7
So rock me kinda slow and kinda easy,

All day and all night."


Em7
Sweet William said

With a drunken head:

"If I had a boat,

I'd help y'all float".

Elizah stood there watching

William in a trance,

As the widowed saint done the St. Vitus dance.
B7
But just then an old man

With a boat named "Breezy"

Said: "You can ride with Clyde, boys,
      A7
If you rock it kinda slow and rock it kinda easy,
    Em7
All day and all night".
