My Old Kentucky Home (Turpentine & Dandelion Wine) (Ry Cooder)

Turpentine and dandelion wine I've turned the corner and I'm doing fine Shooting at the birds on the telephone line Picking 'em off with this gun of mine I got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head Going higher and higher till I'm dead Sister Sue, short and stout She didn't grow up - she grew out Papa says she's plain but she's just being kind Mama says she's pretty but she's almost blind Don't let her out much 'cept at night But I don't care 'cause I'm all right Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home And the young folks roll on the floor Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home Keep them hard times away from my door Brother Gene, he's big and mean And he didn't have much to say He had a little woman that he whupped each day But now she's gone away He got drunk last night Kicked mama down the stairs But I'm all right so I don't care
